My friend's status post....salary.com released the current rate of what stay at home moms are really worth - $118,000.00. Take that all you men that try to push moms back into the work force - we are worth more than you!

Brilliant! And we'll all gather at the park and talk about how much we're worth, and we'll share imaginary snacks, drink imaginary drinks, wear imaginary clothes and then go sleep in our imaginary homes, because we don't ACTUALLY have anything to live on or in.

By that logic, stay-at-home dads are also worth more than working moms. Take that all you women that try to push dads back into the work force! LOL

If a man is trying to push a mom back into the workforce, is it because he's lost his job? If that's the case,then yes, mom needs to go back to work. That is just reality. I am tired of being around women who think working for pay is beneath them.

People are constantly citing studies that "show" the value of a SAHP. Its a silly thing to try to put a $ amount on. If you are talking about money the parent *could* have earned, its totally different from parent to parent. If you are talking about what it costs to hire good childcare its subjective and varies on needs, area/ costs, etc. etc.


If you are talking about hours worked, then its totally useless as WOHP's also take care of their children and don't get "paid" for those hours --- nor should we. fact is no one forces anyone to have kids. Its a *volunteer* job and as such, isnt paid.


I agree though....I would hope that kids would appreciate and love their parents. SAH or WOH. I know I adore my mom and it had nothing to do with her SAH or WOH status.

I would hope any child would grow up can say they love and appreciate all their parents have done for them, regardless if they worked outside of the home or not.


i TOTALLY agree.

I apologize in advance because I haven't read through all the responses. I did want to say how sad I think it is our society needs to assign a dollar value to our self worth.

Yep :) I was looking for a winky something in the post, and I almost said that I wasn't sure if you were serious but then figured I would have seen an eye roll or something to indicate you weren't serious. I never look at those icons. Sorry.
