Prudent is a good old-fashioned word which means "wise." As there are only so many hours in a day, young wives and mothers must decide prudently how to use them. They could benefit from Paul's warning to the Christians in Ephesians to be careful with their time.
"Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is." Ephesians 5:15-17
