Yestarday I ask a question about SAHM's...long story short everyone went bananas!
Yes, I am a SAHM (for 2yrs now), and I have one child about to start school this yr. I've also worked from home and outside of the home.
Thing is I was taken back by the numerous responses of cattiness and insult. We all are women of common ground so why do so many get bitter on a post instead of just answering respectfully and friendly?

The sahm vs working mom is a sore subject just like bf and ff. It doesn't matter if you asked a simple question, someone on that post will post something offensive to the other side in justifying their reasons.

rkoloms - I guess for the same reason you posted your comment here, or when you've asked a question. I mean if you are going to be rude then why not line up ALL cafemom users and ask the same question. It's not that I "care" curiousity is common on a network site like this, and I assume that is why there is a question and answer section.

Sugah....LOL...I was coming back today to answer that q! I didnt have TIME yesterday after I sat and read all the responses! I think that this question IS touchy and depending on what has been thrown at people regarding this issue (bad moms work/lazy moms stay home) people tend to get REAL defensive REAL quick!! Not YOUR fault just personal history :) I am a SAHM. Until I had my DS I was a SAHM with kids in school. My closest friends work. One HATED staying home, was bored out of her mind..........AND has a mama that can get the kids out in emergencies and keep them through holidays! BUT she is ALWAYS stressed about getting her house clean and feels SUPER guilty for mom time! Another friend would LOVE to be able to stay home and cant for financial reasons. She stresses EVERY holiday and summer because she doesnt know WHAT she is gonna do and OMG if one gets SICK! SHE has to leave work b/c she makes less then dh.
