You know, just because no one wants you because you`re so unpleasant doesn`t mean that you have to rag on the girls that actually can get a guy to love them.
Being a father who contributes to AT LEAST 50% of the cooking, cleaning, entertaining, advice dispensing, bathing, boo-boo kissing, bedtime story reading, etc. in our house, in addition to working 40-50 hours a week at my "regular" job, I know that the rewards of parenthood are intangible and no real dollar value can be placed on this rewarding experience. Yet it never fails that some group or another comes out with one of these "studies" every year.
The TONGUE-IN-CHEEK point I was trying to make was that I have never seen any of these studies put a dollar value on the physical support stay-at-home moms get from whomever is out working elsewhere 8-12 hours a day to allow them the ability to stay at home.
and it is harder for stay-at-home dads than for stay-at-home moms"
1) Either you two suffered a major contraceptive malfunction or she lied about the pill.
2)It is absolutely harder for stay-at-home dad. Men are taught their whole lives to ignore and supress their emotions, so they are not as adept as women at handling emotionally charged situations (such as jr. saying "I hate you!" for the first time). But I have met some outstanding Daddy-Moms in my time, and I think it`s wonderful to see fathers making more of a connection with their kids these days.
I`ll bet the geniuses who compiled this data didn`t take into account the perks stay-at-home moms get: free lodging in a completely furnished home, free food, free utilities, free clothing, free use of a vehicle, free gasoline, free health and dental benefits, etc.
then explain how i have a kid when we used both a condom AND she was on birth control?
and it is harder for stay-at-home dads than for stay-at-home moms
... Noone told them to stay at home, cook, clean, wash, iron, etc etc. They should`ve took the pill and used condoms or kept their legs closed...
OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES.....
one last comment..
only peeps that will comment are children, "single"/"loser"men(married or not) or morons.........
just wait till they are expecting...of course they will all say:"not me!"
taking care of children is the hardest job possible...
look at the misfits at this site....
the world is in turmoil.....
just wait....your comeuppance.shall soon arrive....
I`m done...good night...nuff said....
With that logic, someone who works at Burger King makes atleats $90,000 a year.
Tehehe right..... damn tech stuff has me thinking "256" and my numbers bash.
Anyway, most jobs are paid based on training and qualification. You are being paid for your experience and education. College degrees and such. Anybody can cook. Anybody can be a psychologist. Anybody can drive. Most women can take care of a child when they commit to it. But most of those that can won`t be paid that much for doing it unless they put in 10 years of education, training, or experience, and even then they get paid for the job they are doing, not extracurricular duties.
The whole thing is stupid, I think. Everybody that is responsible works hard, or they have put in years and years to get to a comfortable place. Isn`t a child worth the work, anyway? The best investment? This cheapens the children, I think.
Oh and procker, yeah I was an accident. forced my parents to get married and everything. I can`t help but think how much better life would have been for my parents if I had never come along.
Its sexism thinking that just a woman can be a stay-at-home parent, or just a man can go out and work.
but mothers are usually more understanding than the fathers.
happy mothers day
Ummmm 300x56 = 16,800
I think this is the main point of the article. In other words, to raise AWARENESS of how hard [most] mothers work. It was supposed to make people think about the balance of labor in their own household. Most men are perfectly happy to let women go out and make money, but for some reason they still expect them to do ALL the housework ON TOP OF THAT. This has been linked to the high rate of divorce these days, as well as psychological disorders brought on by stress. The point of the article was to say, "Oy! Before you say you`re the only one who works, look at everything your wife`s doing. Help her out a little, unless you want the stress to kill her!"
Umm, and by definition a Moron is someone with an IQ of 0-25. I scored a 128, so I don`t think I am a moron.
and yeah, I feel bad for single moms....even if they are stupid breeders.
2) Stay-at-home moms DO get paid...they live room and board free, usually get some spending money if finances allow, and most importantly get to spend precious time with their children.
3) The women I feel are underappreciated are the working mothers...even today, it is a societal expectation that women are the housekeepers and child-rearers, even if both parents are working the same hours. Granted, that is slowly changing and is certainly not the case in every household, but it is a fact today nonetheless.
Men and Women need to learn that we are not superior to one or the other and we do need help with some things, we can not do everything alone. Unless the father works a 24 hour shift everyday of the week and weekend they can still help plan out the soccer practices, the ballet practices, they can go out and buy groceries after work.
After I`ve said a bunch of stuff on my mind, let the debate go on.
The study is NOT asking for mom`s to be paid, as said by other people, and it is ALSO not counting the fact that not all stay at home mom`s are good moms. They don`t take into account that said stay at home mom (speaking from expeirence no offense to good stay at home moms) might just sit on the couch, mope and read fuc*ing self help books all day long every day, these moms might pass on the duty of stay at home mom to their eldest daughter. Not all the responsibilities were passed on to me, cause I refused and fought, but many were.
Then you have those mom`s who have disabilities but are GREAT moms, such as my one friend. She`s single, has a low paying job, and manages to take care of three kids and she loves all of them equally.
I understand why there is a mothers day. Many people don`t appreciate all that their mom has don
a slap to the face to put them back in line! dont want them thinking they can get paid for this...!
Also... I love my mom for all the things she has ever done for/with me. I could not have asked for a better one.
Wheres my paycheck?
...it does me.
If mothers are going to get paid based on qualification, then there goes most of that salary they are claiming they deserve.
Stay at home mom`s provide a valuable service to thier family, but they need to stop confusing work with what they do. Never have I known of a mom that works in her own house for 8 straight hours with little break, other than an occasional day or two. Most of the time, they`ll clean poo up, keep the kids in line, and sit down and watch soap operas at their leisure.
When you think about they do get paid. It costs money for them to live, and they certaintly aren`t making any of thier own.
may be true that most dad`s can`t, but there are some out there, like myself, that do. now, did they calculate how many children they are taking care of? im sure the pay for having 1 kid is WAY lower than say, like my mom, having 8 kids to take care of AND working a 40 hours a week job. i give her props for all that she has done, and i hope one day my kids can appreciate what i do for them.
Get paid over $100,000 for staying at home keeping the house clean and taking care of the kids? Please. I work my *ss off for $6.05/hr. I`d like to see some people evaluate the crap I put up with at work and come back to tell me how much I should be getting paid.
Before I opened this I figured some mom was sueing the government for a yearly salary.
I chose to become a mom, yes. But, a little recognition goes a long way. It`s a tough business.
But hooray for mummys. It`s a lot of horrid, redundant work.
Did we forget the stay-at-home dads, though? That`s a growing trend now-days.
