I get so depressed reading responses on this site. A lot of people seem to feel a SAHM has absolutely no right to complain about anything because they either chose to stay home (so why are they whining about being with the kids all day) or they should be worshiping their husbands who work so hard so they can stay home.
I'm made to feel like I'm worthless and less deserving of...just about everything because I don't earn a paycheck. There used to be a time with SAHMs were respected for the work they did, now we are looked down on because we're not "contributing" to the family financially and we're not allowed to be unsatisfied with our lives.
I get the impression from people here that my husband is more deserving of breaks and leniency because he earns money and I don't.

Neither side can really complain about a choice they made. both sides have struggles. They are just different struggles. What is sad is that some parents can't respect another families choices or accept their necessities. Some parents have no choice someone needs to stay home because specialized care is expensive and they may struggle on one income. Some parents both err working because they have to to stay afloat but they may struggle because they miss their children. No one situation should be belittled even by comparison. You don't ever know the whole story/.
