Working Moms vs. SAHMs: Who Has It Tougher?

Update: 2022-05-23


Working moms and.SAHMs both have a challenging but fulfilling jobs of being moms.  However,  there seems to be this discussion on whether working moms or SAHMs have it tougher?   

Does it really matter?  As moms, women, and parents, we should be supporting each other.  Sometimes we get into this cycle of trying to see who is more of the martyr or has the most challenging situation.  

Whether you are a working mom or a SAHM, each has pros and cons.  We are all doing our best, and what is best for each family differs.  

Instead of criticizing a working mom or a SAHM who is in a different circumstance or a part of life that might come more easily,  let’s celebrate it!
