According to Reuters if the typical stay-at-home mother in the United States were paid for her work as a housekeeper, cook and psychologist among other roles, she would earn $138,095 a year, base on research released on Wednesday. A 3 percent more from last year's $134,121, conducted by Salary.com Inc, Waltham, Massachusetts-based compensation experts. The 10 jobs listed as comprising a mother's work were housekeeper, cook, day care center teacher, laundry machine operator, van driver, facilities manager, janitor, computer operator, chief executive officer and psychologist, it said. The typical mother puts in a 92-hour work week, it said, working 40 hours at base pay and 52 hours overtime. A mother who holds full-time job outside the home would earn an additional $85,939 for the work she does at home, Salary.com. Last year she would have earned $85,876 for her at-home work, it said. I thinks husbands should love their wives accordingly and give them more love. Children also should be more docile to their mother in order to help them cope their everyday unconditional task. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070502/us_nm/work_mothers_dc

I saw this article on MSN - very interesting. But, I would argue that most stay at home moms don't do all of those jobs. Not saying they are not worththat amount, just that all of the jobs listed they don't do.

You are right there, not every single mom could and would do all the task being listed by Salary.com but the thing is mostly of them do almost of the job inside the house. Of course they are not complaining that's why I noted in the end that it is really unconditional service by our mothers and wives. So whether they do it all or most of the list, they are entitled for our admiration and love. All I can say.

thats quite a lot of money for a mum to earn do their husbands give them all that money or is it just for the whole family as if the mum was working you mean a 92 hour work week is a lot of hours but then a lot of mothers complain aswell about how hard they work for example looking after their children and cooking their husbands a meal which i think is bad they shouldnt really see looking after their kids and husband as work maybe its because thats the way theyre treated so thats the way they feel i agree kids and dads shouldnt take the mums for granted maybe share the work
