Is it a job? NO, because you don't get a monetary paycheck. Is it work? Hell yes! It starts whenever kiddo(s) wake up, and continues throughout the day until kiddo(s) are asleep (and oftentimes after that). Then you have to account for the "family accounting" - balancing the bank accounts, paying the bills on time, scheduling (and being present for) maintenance to the house/appliances, etc...

When you do ALL the child rearing, ALL the laundry (while kiddo runs through the piles of folded laundry), ALL the cooking, ALL the cleaning, ALL the EVERYTHING, it's WORK.

But a JOB? No. Because very little value is placed on stay-at-home moms.

In every life, some time is spent working for others. This is a "job". Other time is devoted to taking care of ourselves and our households.

There needs to be a balance between the two for a household to run effectively. Somebody needs to pick up the kids from school. Somebody needs to cook dinner. Somebody needs to do laundry, get groceries, mow the lawn, and mop the floor. Unless you are wealthy, you won't be paying other people to do these things for you.

Divide up the duties however makes the most sense for your own situation. You typically get a better salary and better benefits if one parent works full time than if each parent works part time. If both parents work full time, you end up spending much of the additional income on services that a stay-at-home parent could otherwise provide.

it is not a job. no one will pay you to raise your own kids. it does not add any value to anyone's life but your own. It is more of a hobby. why are pretty woman housewives? because if you are ugly, you won't get the benefit of being a housewife.

No it is not a job. Are mothers a critical asset in the home? yes. Women that work full time and have kids still come home to be mothers. Still have help kids with homework, get dinner ready, be a wife sometimes too. So being a working mom is more work and one hell of a job
