"A SAHM stays home so that strangers don't raise their kids for them"


Really that had nothing to do with why I was a SAHM for 12.5 years.

The job of a SAHM isn't to leave your children with strangers while you pursue your dreams, you might as well be working.>>

well honestly you could have fooled me b/c you don't seem that understanding of either SAHMS OR WOHMs !

Just because your friend said it doesn't make it true and doesn't mean YOU have to believe it.


I'm currently a SAHM to an almost one year old and quite frankly, it's not working out well for me OR the little guy.

I've been both, although not when my kids have been elementary school age, now that would be easier than working, for me.

How in the world can someone who sees your child every day be a stranger?
