I used to think that it was the earlier years that were more important for mothers to stay at home with their children. After all, the kids are young and still learning the basics of life (like the walking and talking part), and it only seemed natural to want to be with them the most at such a young and tender age. According to celebrity mom Angelina Jolie though, while it is important to be with your kids while they are still toddlers, it’s the teenage years that she’s more concerned about and is willing to give up her Hollywood career in order to stay home with them during what might be their most rebellious moment in their lives.
Angie Jo explains her future plans to Britain’s Channel 4 News: ”I think I’m going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit the teenage years, anyway, too much to manage at home.”
She also adds: ”I will do some films and I am so fortunate to have the job, it’s a really lucky profession to be a part of and I enjoy it,” Jolie says. “But if it went away tomorrow I would be very happy to be home with the children. I wake up in the morning as a mum and I turn on the news like everybody else and I see what’s happening and I want to be part of the world in a positive way.”
I’m sure that any age children always appreciate having their mother by their side, right?
