Fun Spring Activities for Your Kids

They say that being a stay-at-home mom is the most thankless job in the world. You literally work off the hook and round the clock only to hear from your working spouse that he’s so tired and had a hectic day. And you think to yourself what is really like to be tired.

Stay-at-Home Mom – A Job That Never Ends

This Mothers’ Day, we at FamilyTime acknowledge and pay tribute to stay-at-home moms who have the toughest job in the world – a job that doesn’t even pay. At some point of time, we all may have underestimated how tough our stay-at-home moms have it. We tend to be insensitive and less caring at times. But did you know that stay-at-home moms work more than the working moms? This year, did a series of survey and found out that stay-at-home moms are worth more than the working moms. Have a look:



So a stay-at-home mom works 92 hours a week while a working mom works, on average, for 59 hours. came up with in ingenious way to calculate the worth of a stay-at-home mom. They came up with 20 jobs that could make up the position of Mom and then benchmarked the median salaries for each job. So according to, a stay-at-home mom’s base salary for 40 hours totals to $48,509 and the overtime’s salary for 52 hours totals to $94,593 and so the total worth of a stay-at-home mom is $143,102.

And on the other hand, a working mom’s worth is:



So a working mom works for 59 hours a week and so the base salary for 40 hours is $52,685 and her overtime salary for 19 hours is $37,538. And this makes her total worth to be $90,223.

Stay-at-Home or Working, Moms are the Best!

But still, we can’t really say that stay-at-home moms are better than the working moms. They both have their own set of challenges that they meet so beautifully and with utmost effort. So this Mothers’ Day let’s express our love for our mothers and take a moment to think what they do for us and how they work from dawn to dusk to make our lives comfortable and happy. Let’s show our love for mothers and let’s show they are the most important persons in our lives! Happy Mothers’ Day!
