Hermit and SAHM are the same thing

Maybe SAHM's stay home because they have a social anxiety disorder, and it is more comfortable to be at home with children than it is to be in a working environment.

I am saying this as a SAHM who has children in middle--high school that are perfectly capable of being alone for a couple hours every day.  I am a SAHM who spends M-F with no kids for nine hours everyday, plenty of time to have a job.

I have a degree, skills,more than twenty years of solid work experience, references--I could have a job, but I choose to stay at home so that I don't have to hang out with strangers.

I am a SAHM and the number one reason why I am a SAHM is because I decided to take a break from humanity. 

 I chose to be a hermit--and because I have kids SAHM was the perfect excuse.

Well im a sahm and i go out everyday(to the store, to my families houses, to eat, etc). So that definitely doesnt apply to everyone. I stay at home with my child because he was developmentally behind and I helped him by working one on one with him everyday. Now hes all caught up and ready for pre K. I love spending time with my baby, i will never forget it.

You have a mental disorder. Most of us do it because we care about our children.

Just because the title is stay at home mom doesn't mean we all stay at home all the time. If it works for you, great, but that's not how it works for all of us.

There is a lot of truth to this for me. I am sick and tired of dealing with shitty people.
