If you are a SAHM here's another poll I just made: Asking the same thing, just opposite.

Nope.  As long as they are not on PA, LOL. 

I find staying at home far more challenging than when I worked.  Work makes me go in one direction.  SAH sends me in a lot of different directions, as I wear a lot of hats. 

However, every so often, I will sit on the couch, eat something sweet, and indulge in The Situation Room.

I can now say that I have been on both sides of the fence. I was stay at home mom for 4 years & now I am a working mom. But I can't give you a full report on the pros & cons of each just yet because I have only been working for 1 1/2 months so far. So I am still working on striking a balance between working, keeping up on the house, taking care of my daughter oh & having her leave on the weekends to visit her father. But so far besides some guilt things being a working mom isn't all that bad.

Why are the only 2 reasons a person is a SAHM in the op bc she's either lazy or spoiled?

Do what works for your family, but just know that it isn't what works for every family.

I put examples, because those are what I usually see written here on cafemom, I will delete them if that is sensitive for you

So far it's about the same on both links

Im not being sensitive at all. Just wondering why there weren't more examples than negative reasons.
For the record I've been a working mom and SAHM. In both cases my kids have always been in my care, otherwise I wouldn't have become a mother.
