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.

Cindy, maybe you should read my entire post before responding. You'd see that I NEVER suggested that I thought anyone was asking for this pay. And yes, I DID read the entire thread and I DO realize that no rational person would ask for this pay.

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.

wc444, why not make it your last as well? At least read the entire thread before posting. You'd see that it's well known that no one is asking for this pay.

Ike Ray:
"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"

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.

Wow! My first post!

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.

You tell those illegitimate little c*nts Cindy. Honestly, the crap that has risen from this article stupefies me! I for one believe a price tag cannot be put on a mother’s work. It cheapens the role. Personally, I'd give my mum the world if I could.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL YOU MUM'S OUT THERE!!!

I like this thinking. If a mother succeeds, it's because she's great. If she fails, it's because of her children.

Yeah.

Recognition goes a LONG way, though. I'd rather be told "thank you, mom" just once a week than get a paycheck.

They are pointing out (just before mother's day) that SAHMs do an important job. They wouldn't do these kind of survays if idiots like some who posted here didn't run under the idea that stay at home parents just sit around eating bon bons all day watching soaps and the baby's diapers magicly get changed, the food cooks itself, the house picks up, washes, and folds the laundry on it's own. You kids should go up and give your parents a great big hug.

"I Read In A Magazine That Stay At Home Mothers Would Equilvent To $300 A Week, So That Would Be...$109,200 Per Year."

With that logic, someone who works at Burger King makes atleats $90,000 a year.

Wha?

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.

Who said that all single moms were stupid? Maybe their husband/boyfriend died, or left them? It doesn't always mean someone was irresponsible at a party and got "knocked up".
Also, some people chose not to use BC for certain reasons; either health or religious. Sometimes BC fails. It does happen. So, lets put the harsh judgements aside, please. It's making you look like a c*nt, actually.

Oh and these days accidents do not happen. there are plenty of birth control methods out there. I have never had a child, and not for lack of trying. I am just smart about it. So if you get knocked up it isn't an accident. it is being stupid.

Umm, no Cindy. I was one of those kids in school that did crappy in class, could not sit in his seat n stuff, so they sent me for all kinds of test. That is when I did my IQ test, a real one.

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.
