Re: Sick of stay at home moms whining about how 'hard' they have it.
there is no job in the world like being with a screaming baby during colic for days on end, ear aches, and so on. Working with adults and adult jobs are nothing as stressfull as training a child. Their life depends on you, never a moments rest or they could kill themselves, starve to death or kill each other, diaper rash, getting a kid to eat what is good for them, keeping them for destroying every thing they can get to one way or another or destroying themselves with everything they can get to one way or another. The list goes on and on. Back talk, stealing, fighting, school work, clothes and on and on, proper medical care, the cost of vitamines, to vaccinate or not. on and on and on Ya try getting a kid up for school for 18 years and cooking three meals and day including snaks for 20 + years

Hmmm, did someone put a gun to your head and force you to have those kids? Its like shitting in your bed and then whining that it stinks! If I apply for a job cleaning toilets, I can't go home from work and say to my spouse "cleaning toilets sucks! I deal with crap and piss all day!" because I CHOSE to do that. You CHOSE to be a parent and CHOSE to be a stay at home parent. So instead of trying to whine about how hard it so that you can justify the fact that you don't have a place in tax paying America to yourself, just own your decision and tell people that you CHOSE to stay home and raise your child instead of putting them in day care. Stop being so apologetic for raising your kids.

My kids dad died when they were both in diapers one was two months old, I did not ask to be a single mother, other fathers left by choice, I have empathy for single mothers and took care of their kids for free because as a widow I got SS, most single mothers do not even get child support and work full time. I was a stay at home mom for us all and worked when I could and had to

Re: Sick of stay at home moms whining about how 'hard' they have it.
can I brag a little please, it is about the only thing I can brag about. My girls stayed virgins till senior graduation, did not smoke, do drugs, tell me no, swear or ever had any trouble with the law, they dressed modest, were very smart, one staight A in school, both honor students.
Their dad died when they were born and left me with two in diapers. I taught them to live in the woods, how to hunt, fix and build houses, cook with what we could gather in the woods, fish, fix cars, do plubing, elictical and on and on, but they do hate me for it as kids do.

They were both 21 before they had the first babys.
They can hate me for what I did, But I am proud of them and me.

I worked full time in my mom's daycare as a teen, I know exactly what goes into childcare and moms exaggerate it big time. It is an exhausting and demanding job, yes... but so is working in a restaurant, so is delivering pizza. It's funny since a stay at home mom has it easy as hell. you get to stay in your own house...own sofa, kitchen, TV. Plus, the kids sleep for 8 hours and are at school for another 6 hours. How is it so hard? Meanwhile I work full time in a real career with demanding skills that people would kick doors down to try to take from me. The whole movement for moms needing the recognition on the level of a lawyer or doctor is pathetic

Re: Sick of stay at home moms whining about how 'hard' they have it.
Ok OP you seem upset. With my first child I had to work to provide as my ex and I did not make it. After meeting my new husband and 7 yrs later having my second child my husband asked me to stay home. I am not one to complain about it as I really do love it. My children do as well. But it is challenging not hard. As one response went on to explain there is so much more that goes into it that daycares don't have to deal with.

I understand you have a career that is challenging and requires skills stay at home moms don't have but it is just a different kind of challenge and skill set. So with cooking and the constant cleanup as well as teaching them to be responsible little people so that they can one day enter the world without being a waste it can become "hard". I think stay at home moms explain it that way because it is easier to say its hard then to have to explain it all.

I respect your position none the less. But to say its easy as hell is a little off. Furthermore you would be wise to recognize good Mothers as they are the ones for the most part who have the children that become the lawyers and doctors. Behind every good responsible person is usually a good mother. Anyway much love to you OP. Take care.

I worked off and on when my kids were still at home, but, working was NOT my career, being a MOTHER was.
 Quoting: tiger1


Bingo! It's about time people recognize that motherhood is a career.

But sadly, there are SAH mothers who are lazy, apathetic, and do little to nothing.

Those who DO work hard and are responsible, who are there for their kids, especially homeschooling moms, are to be commended for jobs well done!

Part of the societal decline in America began when females bought into the false idea that they could not be fulfilled or productive staying at home.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6123585


The point I was trying to make here, is that we all make choices and should own those choices, good, bad or otherwise and not whine and complain about it unless we are willing to change our situation. Every one of us made choices-some women want to work, some women need to work, some have husbands to support the family and want to raise kids. Some choose not to have kids. Fine! But very few of us happen to have it easy. Everyone has tough tasks everyday. We all struggle and things get hard. Whining never solved anything. If it sucks that bad, then change it. That's all I'm saying.

Before anybody starts whining they should always consider the lives of those they are whining to. You never know how bad their lives are. Maybe you are whining about how hard it is to be a stay at home mom and I want nothing more than to have a chld but am medically unable (which is the truth). Someone always has it worse than you do. People don't know humility anymore.

I wasn't attacking you; I am attacking whining.

Re: Sick of stay at home moms whining about how 'hard' they have it.
EXACTLY OP!!! You took the words right out of my mouth - and we are in different situations.

I am a driven business guy - own my own company and am entirely driven towards my goals - but my "wife" whom we have 2 children under 2 years old with acts like she has the hardest job in the world! To me it is beyond pathetic. She has no idea what I have to endure and accomplish during a day. She has no idea what i sacrifice to make sure both the company and our home life has a financial future.

She sits at home alone with the kids - and gets infuriated with me that i'm out of the house "living it up" - thinking im just "playing business".

She just has to sit at home with 2 children. I know they can be tough. I know they can drive you insane at times. But she IS NOT HOLDING THE WORLD ON HER SHOULDERS!! I strive so hard to make sure we have a future - she instead see's everything i do for the company as my self serving fix. As if i only work for me and my own ego. I work for my family and my future. But this dumb bitch only thinks within her small still small highschool framed like mind that i'm depriving her of her true life!! I pay for everything. I provide everything she needs! She blames me for holding her back while her insecurities get the best of her! I am sick if it!

Sorry for the rant

Re: Sick of stay at home moms whining about how 'hard' they have it.
I've been both a stay-at-home mom and a working mom. It's my opinion you don't know what the heck you are talking about, perhaps jealous of them. People with attitudes like yours are the problem - you tell moms that what they do isn't important and that they aren't important.

When I was a stay-at-home mom I kept busy watching the kids and when they were sleeping or busy, I also renovated the house and did yard work. I was called on by church and school to do those things which working parents are always "too busy" to do. I was a officer on the PTO. I took working parents' kids to programs and practices along with my own because you were, again, too busy.

As a stay-at-home mom, I cooked from-scratch meals which were more nutritious than the prepackaged crap served by so many working parents. I kept the house clean and drinks and snacks available so that my husband could bring home co-workers, bosses, and clients at any time during the day in order to help his career. It worked - he became a vice president.

As a stay-at-home mom, I made sure my kids learned what they needed to learn in school and took them on additional trips to have experiences other kids weren't getting. I taught them the proper behavior in public places (while so many of the other kids were misbehaving). I paid attention to their friends and opened my home up to them so that I could ensure neither my kids nor their latch-key friends were getting into trouble. Today, my kids are working on engineering degrees (one on a PhD and the other is finishing undergrad work). Many of my working friends' kids ended up dabbling in drugs, drinking, and if in college, are attending a low-tier school.

As a stay-at-home mom, I put everyone's needs above my own - which is why I ended up going back to work. Motherhood and home-making is not honored in our country as it should be. No matter how hard you work and how successful you are at it everyone who works thinks you are sitting on your lazy ass eating bon bons.

WEll stated. This is exactly what it is to be a mom. Having snacks on hand because when my kids come home, it is rarely just them- they have friends with them whose parents aren't home and otherwise would sit home alone. So, I have a house full of my kids and other people's kids every day after school until 5 or 6 when parents start wanting them home.

But, I love that. I get to know each kid's friends and am able to help them with stuff. Not only do I get to be 'the cool mom', I am also the mom that the kids choose to talk to when they have a problem- and, I help them talk to their own parents or the school counselor, or police or whomever.

The responsibility of being a full-time parent is intense, if you are doing it correctly. However, if you don't love it, you probably shouldn't do it because you will end up slacking and give a bad reputation to mothers that do do it.

Re: Sick of stay at home moms whining about how 'hard' they have it.
I've been both a stay-at-home mom and a working mom. It's my opinion you don't know what the heck you are talking about, perhaps jealous of them. People with attitudes like yours are the problem - you tell moms that what they do isn't important and that they aren't important.

When I was a stay-at-home mom I kept busy watching the kids and when they were sleeping or busy, I also renovated the house and did yard work. I was called on by church and school to do those things which working parents are always "too busy" to do. I was a officer on the PTO. I took working parents' kids to programs and practices along with my own because you were, again, too busy.

As a stay-at-home mom, I cooked from-scratch meals which were more nutritious than the prepackaged crap served by so many working parents. I kept the house clean and drinks and snacks available so that my husband could bring home co-workers, bosses, and clients at any time during the day in order to help his career. It worked - he became a vice president.

As a stay-at-home mom, I made sure my kids learned what they needed to learn in school and took them on additional trips to have experiences other kids weren't getting. I taught them the proper behavior in public places (while so many of the other kids were misbehaving). I paid attention to their friends and opened my home up to them so that I could ensure neither my kids nor their latch-key friends were getting into trouble. Today, my kids are working on engineering degrees (one on a PhD and the other is finishing undergrad work). Many of my working friends' kids ended up dabbling in drugs, drinking, and if in college, are attending a low-tier school.

As a stay-at-home mom, I put everyone's needs above my own - which is why I ended up going back to work. Motherhood and home-making is not honored in our country as it should be. No matter how hard you work and how successful you are at it everyone who works thinks you are sitting on your lazy ass eating bon bons.
