Mothers who work outside of the home have it harder than stay-at-home moms. In addition to working 40 hours a week or more they still have a family's laundry load, a house to clean, a household to run, children to feed and clean-up after etc.

If you agree post that you do below. If you disagree tell me what reasoning you have to support your argument.

The only exception I can think of would be if there is a SAHD who is taking on the domestic responsibilities.

I hit it's equally difficult. I've been both. I've also been a work from home mom. That was actually the hardest.

It depends on the JOB. FOR ME, the year I stayed home was a CAKE WALK. I teach and its demanding. I am lucky to get breaks though.

Quoting acrogodess:

I could see working at home being very difficult. Not only do you have to be a SAHM, but get your occupational work done as well.....

Working was actually easier for me. However, each has their own challenges!

I work and parent. I don't believe working moms have it harder. Every situation is different.

I've done both. To me both had their own struggles. Single parenting has been hardest thing I've done as a parent.
