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.

I'd rather work all day and come home to more work than be trapped in a house with kids all day. sahms win, especially those who make it out alive without suiciding.

JUST SAYIN.

I'm a sahm & I agree.

There is nothing wrong with being a SAHM and I think it is great that some women are blessed with the opportunity to do so!

IMO yes. I am a SAHM and feel that they have it harder. Sure I get lonely but I don't have to get up and get dressed, plus my kids dressed and out the door everyday.

I think it's pointless to debate who has it harder. Who really wins that contest, exactly? I think every individual has their own challenges to overcome in their lives. Playing the martyr olympics is really just not a helpful dialogue, imo.

 Other.  Work at home Mom's have it the hardest.  Imagine having a high stress extremly time sensitive work load which requires 40-60 hours a week WHILE taking care of your children, then when work is done all the normal household crap needs to be tended to.   Working moms get to focus on work, then focus on home.  Stay at home moms get to focus soley on their kids and home.  WAHM do both at the same time.

I find being a SAHM harder tbh. I enjoy working. It gives me that little bit of time away from my family.. Not that I don't love them or anything, I just need some time with other adults.

For me being a working mom was a lot harder. I had a very physically demanding job. I just recently became a sahm, and I find it a lot easier.
