I'm not a mum, but when I am I won't work if I don't have to, if I wanted to be a career woman I wouldn't have kids, but if I wanted to have kids and a career I would have kids first, wait til they're old enough to look after themselves and then get a career.

That's a very good job. :) I'm surpised this thread is getting responses. Someone had started a thread about how mothers should stay at home with their children until they are 5 or something like that, and get paid for it by the government and not work and it basically became a bashing zone for working mothers. We were told we don't take care of our children. One person had mentioned bringing her child to a play group and her child had been pinched by another child and funny enough it happened to be a child of a "working mum" LOL Gotta love ignorance. I tried to defend us working moms, and they pretty much had no clue and refused to see what is right for their family might not be right for everyone else's in the world. Some of them even believe that most of us career moms are forced to work. I guess maybe it is hard for some to understand that having a career can be rewarding. I am working at home right now and finishing up some classes from home and at the actual school and than back to work I go.

More proof that you don;t understand. If you're on about the one where you didn't have a clue what was being said, it wasn't about whether or not mothers should stay at home, it was about whether people who do stay at home should be entitled to the same as that which mothers who leave their kids with someone else are entitled to. Now, do you get it? Or are you really as thick as you appear to be?

I agreed to disagree with you on another thread. I don't know why you still insist on dancing with me.

This is an interesting question, I saw this advert for a job the other day, I wonder if you'd like it. The job will involve; Cooking Cleaning Childcare Nursing Teaching Nutrtionist Accountant Provisions aquirer Referee Hygienist Launderer You must have the ability to adapt to the requirements, which are likely to change daily. Patience and the ability to multitask are also required. On call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Financial reward for doing this job is £0 A good stay at home mother will do all of the above for the reward of having the children behave how she really wants them to. Maybe I've misunderstood the question and you mean mums who go out to work from 9 to 5 and get paid for it. Our definitions may differ.

Hi, I did actually mean moms who work a job, other than having a job as a homemaker, but I did not clarify that I guess. :) I do do the job you posted already, I also work at home for the time being, plus am taking online classes and a few outside classes to recertify, which I have to do every few years for my career. I will go back to working outside of the home within 6 months or so is the plan.

I am currently at home looking after my two little ones and I am trying to set myself up as a freelance web designer. Its tough going. When I just had the one I went back to work part-time as a secondary teacher and was also doing home tuition but now with the two of them its a little hard to get out so I am trying to set something up from home! Hard work! I reckon we should be paid for looking after our little ones and the house - its the hardest job I have ever had to do!!

You sound like your doing very well. Yes It is quite a job to look after little children. I bet it is harder with 2 little ones at the same time. I had a hard enough time with one when she was younger.. I was also a single mom for a long time. was very hard work.

I am a mom to five and work part time . I am usually a full time mom but once in awhile I come across a job that works out for a little while . Right now I am again working at a call center but wish I could find a work at home job so I could be home with my little one's more .

I was a working Mum up until recently, I didn't mind going to work, but I didn't like leaving my son even though he was with his Dad, I still missed him while I was at work, that's not why I finished working though. I'd love to find a job that fitted round school hours, but they don't seem to exist.
