Is anyone out there a stay at home mom? I hate how so many people frown on women who stay home with their children.

I am not a mom or have kids. There is nothing wrong with women raising their children. It is one of the most rewarding jobs there is.

Stay at home currently but no kids, would love to be a mum, but hubby and I are trying hard to sort out our health and financial issues first.

No one should make you feel bad. The point of feminism is equality, so that you have the choice to do what you want and be treated with respect and fairness for it. Anyone who looks down on you needs a lesson in respect!

Thanks ladies. I had such a good childhood because my mom stayed home with me a lot. Now she passed from a sudden brain tumour and I remember those times so well. I think I will stay home with my daughter until she starts school and stop listening to what everyone says.

Hold your head up high! You're doing the most important job in the world and if I had it my way, all stay at home moms would be compensated and paid a good salary. Enjoy and cherish your early years together. You're definitely doing the best thing for your child and his/her development.

I am a stay at home Mom as well.
It shouldn't be frowned upon at all.
Our children are only young once and time should always be cherished. Every mother should get the opportunity to be a stay at home Mom for their children, its just unfortunate that a lot of parents cant financially afford to do so this in this day of age!

Have been one from day 1!! on Jan 25, 2016 @ 03:21 pm

My boys are 22 and 19 now, but I've always been home with them. If you can afford to do it there's nothing wrong with it at all! When I was a kid there was more stay at home moms than there was working moms and it was the other way around. A lot of working moms got looked down on by the stay at home moms. As far as I'm concerned in todays world it all comes down to a matter of finances and choice. What you do with your life and your family is completely up to you and no one else's ever! If you want to and you're able to, than I say stay at home because you'll never get that time back and believe me it goes by a hell of a lot faster then you might think it does! I can't believe my boys are young men already. It seemed like yesterday I was still taking them to grade school. Take that time with your kids if you can and don't you ever let anyone make you feel guilty about doing it!!

That my mat leave is almost over I wish I could be a stay at home Mom for a couple of some European countries maternity/parental leave is 3 yrs...jealous!!
Hubby is just finishing school so we can't really afford for me to stay home, we need to pay off all the loans and lines of credit....we are in AB so now on top of things I am worried I will be laid off upon return (yes they can do that) after I paid for the daycare which is insanely expensive here :(

And as other people said - don't let anyone make you feel guilty about being a SAHM. Those who frown upon that don't fully graps how much you actually do. Ya may be when the kids are full time at school it does leave some free time but before they start school it's a nonstop job!

I have been at stay at home mom for 7 years. I also run a small home daycare. I am very thankful to be able to stay at home with my kids, it is an important job raising the next generation. I have had people make disparaging comments to be about 'oh, you're JUST a stay at home mom' but I don't let it bother me. It is my choice and contrary to what many believe, I DO in fact do work during the day! Just ignore people who act like that.

I am a new mom on maternity leave. I dont really want to go back to work until my daughter is in school as we cannot afford daycare. Any money I make will just go to other people lokking after my kid! we also cant afford for me not to work. We have decided that i will work 2 days a week when my husband is off. I hope it works for us.
