Why do women continue to be SAHM after the kids start school? *EDIT*

Posted by   + Show Post

Most women choose to be a SAHM mom so they can be there with the kids, right?  They say being a SAHM is a tough job, WHICH I AGREE with when the kids are there. So after the kids start school, why do they stay home? Just curious is all?

***EDIT***

This was honsetly a general question. I was not insulting SAHM. Just take a deep breath or a couple Xanax and calm down. I am not here to judge or fight with anyone. It was proven though, that it does not matter if you are a SAHM or a working mom... Some just never grow the FU!$ up. We are all moms here. We raise our children the way WE choose to. Unless a parent is completely neglecting their child or harming them in any way or just plain lazy, then there should be no judgement. I guess you could call me nosey or whatever, I dont care. Some of you need to put your big girl panties on and not take everything so personal.

because it is better for the kids to have a mom at home than for the kids to come home to an empty house or be shipped off to daycare.

So we'll be home when the kids get home. We can volinteer at the school, not have to scramble for childcare on snow days or school vacations, get stuff done during the day.

Super lazy.  But I get done what needs to get done.  Hmm, maybe I'm just super efficient.

Quoting AliKatAK47:

I give you props for admitting your lazyness

So I can watch TV and fool around on cafe mom.  DH makes enough money that I don't have to work, and I don't want to.

Because they are also a home maker. It wont be my choice, but if its someone else's then more power to her.

 No, she is tending to the home and kids she SHARES with her husband. Family money is NOT going to after school childcare because she's home.
