I have this mind boggling question ? To all the stay at home moms do you all think that because you are staying at home your husband/partner expect a lot from you in terms of household chores,raising kids.Do you think if you were working the situation would be a lot more different?Please share your experiences??

It depends on the situation,if you do have lots of kids to take care of, then better to be stay at home mother and do hands-on to your kids and to your husband. If you only had two kids and can take care of themselves already, then better to be a working mom and help husband for financial matters.

I experienced both, being a working mom and now a stay-at-home mom. But being a stay-home-mom means I have to "show: m husband what I accomplished for that day, sort of I enforce a self-rule to do some work-audit. He did not mind if I accomplished something or not, but I do it to prove to myself that I am sharing something for the family. But I do earn from time to time working at home writing or blogging.

I have been a working mom and a stay at home mother and honestly the expectations are the same. When I worked - I still cooked, cleaned, and got the kids off to school. When i wasn't working I did the same thing. The work load didn't decrease, I simply had more time to do it in. I honestly feel more stressed by not working at the moment than when I was working.,

Hi, ruchimom! I was a working mom, and am now a stay at home mom. To be perfectly honest, the work load was as much being a working mom as it is being a stay at home mom. I am lucky in the fact that my husband helps out when he can, and my children are over ten and they help out some. It is hard to be a stay at home mom, but it is just as equally hard to be a working mom. The truth is both the stay at home mom, and the working mom are both working for their families.
