Elisabeth Hasselbeck (Fox and Friends)The leader of a conservative women's organization is applauding the decision by "Fox & Friends" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck to step down from her position so she can stay at home with her children.

Hasselbeck made the decision late last month - and followed that up with an on-air announcement - saying she's at a season where her kids "need the best of me not the rest of me." Penny Nance, CEO and president of Concerned Women for America, says Hasselbeck's decision to make a children a priority is one to be supported.

"I strongly stand behind her decision to take a break and be at home while her children are still little,” she tells OneNewsNow. “Life is long. She'll have many, many opportunities [down the road], but your kids are only little for a small, short window of time." 

Hasselbeck told her audience that she's taking a new position as "CBO - Chief Breakfast Officer" at her home.

"It's important - and it's not a decision you'll ever regret to invest in your family,” Nance adds. “Women have a responsibility to children and so do men - and good parents make decisions every day to put their families before their careers." 

Nance says just as Concerned Women for America supports Hasselbeck's decision, they will also support her when she decides to go back into the workplace.

Hasselbeck joined "Fox & Friends" in September 2013, replacing Gretchen Carlson.
