What is so hard about being a stay at home mom? I have been a stay at home mom for 6yrs now and I have 6 children and there is nothing hard about it. I would never say it is a JOB to take care of my children, it is a joy. My DH does not help out at all and I have no close family, so I do EVERYTHING by myself. What is so hard about taking care of your own children, cleaning your own house, and cooking for your family?
The above was a question I saw posted on here.
I don't care how well you look after your family, if you have the advantage of a helping husband or relatives. I do care if you make other mom's feel bad about themselves because you are a self entitled super mom. I think being a super mom means you do for your family while helping and lifting up other moms in the process. I don't feel any better about myself if other mom's can't do certain things or need support. Sorry but Q's that are written to make other mom's feel inferior are rather irritating.
The more kids you have the more they can take care & entertain each other like in your case with 6. Everything in life is "experience". The more you have experienced the easier it gets. You may have more experience so raising your children is easy for you at this point in your life. Unfortunately when we are new to an experience it is harder for us since we need to learn the ropes. If you were taken out of your home & placed in a full time job which was all new to you, how easy would that be for you? Live & learn, that is the true lesson in life. Adjustment takes time. If it makes someone feel better to vent when they are experiencing stress then so be it.

I took it as a put down and someone out to cause crap. The person who asked that question could probaly have worded it a bit differently and got a better reaction but putting other moms down while bragging about herself, that's classic.

Next question overall
Is this a valid reason to deny your child dental visits & care?
