Why does everyone seem to think all SAHMs are on assistance or can't afford it?
It seems that a lot of people on here think that the vast majority of families with a SAHM or SAHD are on government assistance of some kind or otherwise are barely affording to make ends meet on one income. I personally don't know any SAHPs where this is the case. So I'm curious, are there really that many parents who stay at home but can't afford it? To WMs and SAHMs both- what is your definition of being "able to afford" having one parent home?
