What does experience as a stay at home mother teach that education can not?

Are there experiences that have helped you grow as a woman due to being a stay at home mom that you never learned anywhere else?

  • This question can not only be answered by a stay at home mom, but any mother in general. Being a mom helps every woman learn things, that well, only can come from someone being a mother. Educations teaches you knowledge. Being a mother teaches you love. And to learn the things that money simply cannot buy.

  • I would have to say that I have learned patience and the enormous amount love that you can't get anywhere else. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I am not a stay at home mom but I only work 20 hours a week.

  • that no matter how much time i spend with my DD she is still gonna be a butt.

    i have a BS degree in child development and there are countless things that i would never have learned if i wasnt a mom. i dont think it has much to do with being a SAHM, but just a mom in general.

  • The importance of "Thank you"

    I never hear it enough these days and it reminds me to tell my mother more and more how much I appreciate all she did for me for all those years.
