We’ve all seen the webcomic illustrating what people think stay at home moms do, and what they really do, but society’s perception of a stay at home mom remains very negative-from sleeping in and ...
staying in PJ’s all day to gallivanting around with friends for shopping sprees. www.familycord.com has put together a great infographic detailing what a stay at home mom really does, and how much she’s worth.
Over an average year, a stay at home mom spends 15,000 hours on childcare, 8,000 hours on cooking, 6,000 hours on laundry, and 11,000 hours cleaning/fixing the house. This averages out to about 94 hours per week of work-hardly enough time to sit around all day watching soaps! And with a preschooler, sitting through an entire show is almost impossible. A preschooler requires a parent’s attention every 4 minutes on average-210 times a day. And shopping sprees are usually few and far between, since 75% of families that have a stay at home mom have less than $100,000 per year in income.
Stay at home moms play many roles, including chauffeur, chef, financial planner, educator, and housekeeper. When we add this up, at a regular salary plus overtime, the average stay at home mom would make $100,000 a year! And that’s just for the few essential roles that moms play. We haven’t even added in the cost of a nurse, psychologist, computer operator, or CEO. Stay at home moms are worth their weight in gold-in fact, they’re priceless.
