If taking care of kids isn't a job? **EDIT**

Why do you pay someone to do it? This whole argument that sahms don't work. Bullshit. It's a job, just different than yours. Ok. I feel gross for even contributing to this crap. But really, if being a daycare worker is a job, why isn't sahm?

 

I am not saying one is better. I dont attack working moms for working. Guess im personally tired of being told i dont work. Off to gymnastics, then shop, then to clean and make an appt later. Wait... i mean off the sit on my ass and eat bon bons!

It's a responsibility, not a job.

Is this a spin-off of another post?

Taking care of someone else's children is a job. Not taking care of your own.

It's not a "job" because a SAHM does not get paid for it. I agree that it's silly and stupid, but technically speaking it is not a career or a job; it's a responsibility, and an incredibly important one at that. Working moms and stay-at-home moms all need to chill the fuck out.

 So, since I work full time AND care for my children and home, does that mean I have two jobs?
