A job indicates something that your paid to do, the US doesnt pay you to stay home with your children. It is definatly hard work though and i think alot of people underestimate just how much work goes into being a stay at home mom. Ive worked while i was a mother and im currently a stay at home mom, i can tell you that staying home with my son is much more tiring and alot more work. Its well worth it to be home with him and be able to watch him grow, but taking care of two year old all while trying to pay bills, run errands, clean the house, do laundry, do the dishes, manage the yard, cook dinner, etc is hard work. You also dont get a break...atleast with work at the end of the day you can go home and forget about it, as a stay at home mom your entire life is your work.
I don't see it as a job where you get financial benefits. I see it as a job that you have to uphold a responsibility. I think it is more like something you have to do because you have to, not because you get something from it. Although, you get to teach the child more things and get to watch mistakes. I believe it is a job, because you are doing something for your family and you are still performing hard tasks. It's not a career (sometimes) that you you study for, but you still have an understanding of what you have to do, so you can have your child to have a normal and safe life.
Yes, I think it is a job. You dont necessarily get paid for jobs. I dont get paid for what I am currently doing (I am paying them!) but if I wasnt doing it, someone would be getting paid to do it. The same thing with being a full-time parent. If you werent doing it, you would hae to pay someone to take care of the children for you. It may not be a paid job in most cases, but the amount of work that goes into it definately qualifies it as a job.
no because in order for something to be a job, u need to get paid to do it, you dont get paid to take care of your owne kids, but then mabey it could be because a job is also like a chore, taking care of kids can be a chore sometimes
In some places you do - it's called Baby Bonus, lol...I was getting almost $1,000 a month just to stay at home and raise the kids
I think u get paid, its just not money, the pay u get is knowing ur kids are well taken care of, hopefully thr well taken care of
I think that it's hard work, but it's not a job, more like a duty or a responsibilty that you chose
It's not a job, I think its just work and a very hard work too.
OH MY YES IN DEED IT IS, ITS LIKE WORKING 10 JOBS IF U ASK ME
yes, its hard and a 24/7 job no breaks till they go to sleep
I think it's work, I don't know if you'd call it a job.
I'd say it's 'work' but not a 'job'.
No, you don't get paid to do it.
