When you were a kid did your friends belong to families with 1 or 2 working parents?

It was never common in my town to have a stay at home mom. I knew two kid my whole 20 years living there that had stay at home moms. That's it.

Everyone else had 2 working parents.

Most of the women I know in real life stayed home for a short amount of time before going back to work. 3-6 months is typical.

I grew up in the 70s. Most moms were SAHMs, I only knew a few where both parents worked.

Now most parents I know have two working parents although not all the parents work 9-5 and some do some work from home.

Most had a parent home when we got home from school, whether or not they worked.

I never knew moms could work until fourth grade. I was shocked....not one mom I knew worked!

Growing up, 2-parent homes with 1 SAHM was the norm. It is still the norm here. I'm not sure why.

When I was growing up all the moms in our neighborhood had careers, not just jobs.
