A recent study found that working moms feel less depressed and overall healthier than stay-at-home moms:

Let's put it this way, you may want to lay in a supply of tequila. ;)

Personally, I like teens a lot better than toddlers, so that made the teen years somewhat easier for me than the toddler years, but similarities between the two abound: extreme self-centredness, tantrums, "I do it"ness (much more dangerous when they are teens) and so on.

i thought of this old discussion late last night as i was surfing tv channels for something to watch, a dr.drew (?) show came on and he was discussing this very topic and how it related to happiness and health.

This article has no merit. I imagine the sahm's who are depressed and the ones that hate it. In my experience, all of the sahm's I know love it, although it can ofcourse be stressful (when the kids are young). They love having freedom in their days to leisurely plan activities and take care of the physical and intellectual needs of their children. All of the working moms I know are not depressed, but would quit their jobs in two seconds if either their husbands made more money or they knew they could get their job back at a late time.
