The BeHome blog is a project of the Home Renaissance Foundation (HRF). At HRF our aim is to restore proper prominence to the work of the home. We believe that the home is the essential building block of society. Good homes will lead to a better society. The role of the homemaker as a professional needs to be properly recognised.
The home is like your own business; the better organised it is, the happier your family will be. If it is neglected it will fail to provide the comfort and security that everyone needs. It needs to be taken seriously. Welcome, then, to the new ‘professional’ vision for the home.
Joanna Roughton highlights important issues around homemaking for the Home Renaissance Foundation through the BeHome Blog. She writes about current events that affect both the home and the role of homemakers.
Jo was formerly Television News Editor for Reuters based in Hong Kong and Singapore, and latterly the Head of Foreign News at Sky News in London. In 2002 she took the decision to become a full-time homemaker to her six children.
If you feel that the work of the home has been seriously undervalued and even undermined in the recent past then this blog is for you.
