Mothers who work outside of the home have it harder than stay-at-home moms. In addition to working 40 hours a week or more they still have a family's laundry load, a house to clean, a household to run, children to feed and clean-up after etc.
If you agree post that you do below. If you disagree tell me what reasoning you have to support your argument.
I have been both a working mom and a SAHM. In both situations, my husband and I have split the housework. For me, being a SAHM is harder because I have a hard time keeping to a schedule because I don't have deadlines and time constraints like I did when I was working.
Not necessarily. Working moms don't have little people making a mess out of their house all day because people are not home. I do think being a working mom is physically more demanding, but being a sahm is mentally more demanding. I think it also depends on what you do for work.
I think since everyone has their own unique situation, and their own opinion on what is "hard", there's no one answer who has it harder or easier.
Would a SAHM of 8 have it "easier" than a working mom of 1?
I think parenting in general is hard and it should just be left at that.
Or if the man takes on half (or more) of the household chores.
My brother and SIL have always worked since they got together, and my brother has always done the majority of the cleaning/laundry/etc. My SIL has it great, and too bad not all working moms have someone willing to help them like that.
The only exception I can think of would be if there is a SAHD who is taking on the domestic responsibilities.
