No I don't think you have less life experience just because your a stay at home mom. I don't feel that way. I have been a stay at home mom for about a year now and I don't think I have less experience.
No, I don't feel that way. I think experience is what you gain out of your life, no matter where you're at. I'm sure we've all met women with careers/jobs who have little life experience outside what they've always known..
not at all. I have also been both. A work outside of home mom and a stay at home mom/housewife. I prefer being home. my family have travelled across Canada, have lived in 3 provinces, my kids attended a full French school for one year (my home town school, the school I went to as a child from kindergarten to grade 7). They did extremely well, considering that they only speak English at home They learned the language real quick, even my special needs dd who has always struggled through school. If I had been working full time since the kids were born, I don't think we would have been able to find the time to travel as much as we did, and we certainly would never have lived in 3 provinces because a job would have prevented me from doing that.
Not at all...I've done both...I like sahm better.
I'm not sure it is so easily defined as saying having a career versus not having a career. I mean, shoot me, but many men in my family are military men. They have a lot of MILITARY experience, and a lot of world traveling as a result, but I'd argue that none of them have ever had to live in "the real world."
It isn't more or less life experience. It is just different.
I know plenty of dull and super immature career women who could easily be suffering from a lack of life experience. But I know plenty of stay at home moms with the same problem.
