Can you think of something that our society is operating in order to systematically eliminate stay-at-home moms? (nowadays is not uncommon to see both parents working)

  • Good question. I'm searching my brain for an answer, haha. I guess inflation doesn't help the SAHM cause. I wouldn't necessarily say that prices rising are directly trying to stop moms from staying home, though.

  • I don't think that it has to be with "peer pressure" it's an individual choice.

  • I think most sahm also take care of the finances and run the budget, at least I do. So we know where to make cuts and stretch the budget if need be.

  • I think that one good example is the cost of health insurance. It's so expensive to provide insurance for a SAHM and kids. If a mom works, her health insurance is usually covered. I am not a SAHM, ( I am the breadwinner in my family), but if I were going to stay at home, that would be the only reason why I couldn't.

  • i think most of the women work cause they want to. unless they are single and have children to support. i don't like seeing the ads on my yahoo page on the right side saying that obama want women to get an education and go back to work. um i don't want to go back to work and makes me wonder why he cares. is he raising taxes? so far i heard it's inenvictable that taxes have to be raised due to the spending and debt of america. i'm staying home one way or another.

    Nowadays? Honey, this has been going on for a long time. Family size has a lot to do with it. There are seven kids in my family and I'm the youngest. When I started school my mother went to work part time to help with the finances. She didn't quit working until it was just her and my dad at home. Unless one parent makes enough to completely support the family, both parents have to work. I applaud SAHM's and wish I could have been one. I think the entire family benefits from that stability.
