I found this interesting image. SAHM salary $59,862.30 and seeing this figure makes me more happy.
wow i think we are worth more also!!!
I think we are worth more as well!
We fill so many positions at once! We should make at least 6 figures.
I think as homeschoolers we would make double that!
That's awesome. I agree that some of the numbers need to be tweaked (I definitely spend more than 10 hours a week teaching! LOL)
I walked away from much more than that to stay at home! lol
Something was going around a couple of years ago that said $130k - ish... I wonder if that is more accurate. Who knows. It's hard, but it's life. It drives me nutsy when women talk about how being a SAHM is the hardest job in the world, etc. It's really not. I think working outside the home AND mothering would be harder. I think brain surgery would be harder. I think being a soldier would be harder. I don't have to work outside the home, and I get to spend all day with the greatest people in the world! :)
