The Value of a Stay at Home Mom. I know that my fellow SAHMs are smarter than the message the world shouts at us. We know that we’re making a difference, that our time isn’t wasted, and that our kids are benefiting from the lifestyle we’ve chosen. We know that we don’t have the glamorous life or the life of a slave.

  • Being a stay at home mom is the most difficult job in this world… Being a doctor having worked over time in the hospital is comparatively much easier then housewives jobs… If only men could understand a d appreciate us

  • Im fighting with this right now. I have a 15 month old and im 12 weeks pregnant. Pregnancy really does a number on me, I have very rough pregnancies. And i just feel like im failing right now because i have zero energy and im sick a lot and keeping up with my 1 year old is so difficult right now.

  • If you listen to everyone what they have to say about you then no matter what you do it’s not good or not enough. I worked for 10 years and then stay home 8.5 years have three kids. So I believe staying with kids is what I wanted to do for my kids enjoyed every bit of it now I am working from home. No comparison to any women stay home or working. Do what works best for you. Cheers to all women!��

  • Love your videos!! This is a great video!! I’m def a repeater every single day!! A little harder for me since my boyfriend works from 8am till 2am!! And I’m a stay at home mom of two boys (1 and 3)

  • About that loosing identity thing.. that is because now these days house wives are not designated that much.. probably that is why we being women also feel are we worth enough?

    New perspective is needed mom’s at home when asked what’s up with you should say I am building a future for the country..
    The way we nurture the kids that way the future of the country will look.. and when we happily respect women’s job of making a house then the society will also do the same..and no one will feel the sense of lacking something in their lives

  • Love your channel. I’ve only just found you and so my comment won’t be very timely, as you recorded this a year ago! Another vlogger I watch on YouTube suggests a ‘list of three’. This is a small list of your top 3 priorities for the day. You may have a longer list on your phone or fridge or whatever, but in your planner for today, you have only your list of 3. It is manageable, reasonable and easier to get through than a massive list. Just pick your top 3 and start there.
    You’re very motivating and relatable

  • Hi dear am from mauritius…. I was a teacher I quit my job when I got my second child knowing how difficult it is to get a job n perhaps I may never work as a teacher again but I accept this biggest challenge in my life n hope my children will b proud of my decision when they grow up

  • Funny! No one is discussing what does it mean to live a good life. The identity coming from work that pays, in other words, the identity is directly related to the money earning is taken ‘the’ identity. Why is better to produce non-sensical content videos than taking care of a child? Why do women need to compete all the time with men to prove their worth? Why being at home is such a derogatory thing that neither woman and nor man should do?

  • It’s strange that no matter what country you belong too almost all women esp stay at home mothers and working women can relate to this video. Stay strong ��

  • I used to work and now I’m stay home mom. And now I feel like ��������������… I’m worthless and don’t have identity and at the same time I feel guilty for having this feelings cause I love my kids and it sounds like I’m blaming them. And I’m not. ���������������������� what should I do. I’m totally drowning with guilt, emotions, identity crisis, societies views waah waah �������������� and the worst is, no body knows this is what I’ve been going through cause I’ve been pretending to be ok and happy for the sake of my family. But I’m slowly dying inside and I’m changing, I don’t recognize myself, I’ve lost myself. I don’t know how to find me ��������������. God help please.

  • Its xactly wat we go thru, though motherhood is the most bful journey, yet we always feel, I wish I was working and was financially independent irrespective of wat the work is!

  • I’m sorry but it is us who set this, “staying home and educating a naive soul is not a duty, teaching someone how to eat, how to dress, how to speak, how to be a better person is not a task..”
    Ques at 1:00 shows that only if you earning some money or interviewing some sort of celebrity than you are doing some sort of job and hold some identity. Sorry it is not at all like that..life would have been easier for us if people would have understood this that earning money is not the only way to earn social status.

  • Lucky are those moms who can afford to quit.
    There are many moms who need to work for their children.
    I guess moms who don’t face any economic crisis is life, feel all sorts of dilemma.
    We had balanced work and home very well.

  • I have 5 kids I’m always lacking energy.. I survive off coffee and everything else sounds like a chore lmbo but everything you’re speaking is truths!

  • It’s not helping…it’s their responsibility…since there childhood…parents should teach to kids… these are responsibilities of boy and girl…

  • can’t agree more…i have been on both sides and personally for me while working it was more guilt and now yes it’s loss of identity but still better than guilty

  • Staying home for u r children is not bad but is a important effort for u r little kid’s great future… interms of their mental and physical health development & security……….And quiting job temperarily is difficult but it’s worth bcz u can start working after they are 8-10 years but can’t see how u r children r growing(feel motherhood) later……..if u dnt quit u r job in their childhood they will definitely I guess complain u sooner or later for being not there for them when they needed u….hence losing u r lovly bond with them……secondly children need mom more than dad by there side

  • Whoever generate the idea to survey this..i am touched.. women lost identity just to care other and still live in guilty, axiety and stress in a same time..

  • Nation should understand working mums…stress…especially when kids are in preschool or going to school.They should be allowed to leave office earlier then male counterparts or office work for 4 days only…������

  • Why can’t people stay single? Can anybody explain this to me?
    I have decided to stay single forever and my parents also appreciate my decision.
    Anyway, no one is forced to get married and have kids. But, complaining for your own “choices” is idiotic.

  • Being mother is life lesson,where our journey as woman got final destination,. After none roll affect more than this. It’s bond between soul and heart. definitely difficult,full of tried, sleepless nights and days,worries of health, knowledge and curicity,guilt,tears all together walks,but yes none life roll can beat motherhood ����

  • A woman know how to handle stress it doesn’t matter if she’s a housewife or a working women…a woman is a complete package…we need love and respect not sympathy guys

  • if your husband earnign good,just be a good housewife,and walk away from all those stress related corporate jobs,thats running on squeezing people for maximum profit.If a man has such choice,i am sure he will happily take it,,

  • If God tells u that u r going to die within 3 days do whatever u want to do…what will u do in these 3 days.. would u like to do job or u will like to spend time with ur kids..think….now u get the answer..so do the things which keep u happy…

  • what a propaganda machine,,,trying to redicule the motherhood.Ugly side of pheminism,similar to what what these pheminists are doing in west.

  • Okay I was taught that in child birth both parents are needed..but when it comes to upbringing of the child..why mother has to be more responsible?.

    If birth can’t be asexual than why parenting is?.
    Was I taught the wrong theory?.
    I am confused

  • I’ve got a 3 year old and a 9 month old, lately my toddler has stopped sleeping properly at night and I’m completely exhausted. It’s gotten me down big time����‍♀️ so this video was so motivational for me just to try and kick the slump��������. Thanks for the great content!! X

  • But i dont find it comfortable them addressing there own kid as someone else’s kid like what?!
    I absolutely don’t find it right
    They are someone from you
    Motherhood doesn’t basically make you worthless or anything less but i do agress you must have an immense amount of support from your partner i totally get that point but blaming things not working right way because you had a kid is not right
    That innocent life is not to be blamed for our decisions please
    It kinda seems like feminism is turning out to be something else day by day

  • I worked at company as a quantity surveyor… a lot of project… just one quantity surveyor… i couldn’t spent enough time with my baby.. i fed up of work… then i quit and spent a lot of time with my girl… now i am starting to miss the old me… i want to go back….

  • I can relate being a working mom. Sometime I feel, I should quit when I hear my child crying. Spcl, in this pandemic situation when you have to work from home. When you know, see and feel when your child is distress. When swapping my job, I took 6 month of break, I feel sense of loss of identity and was mentally distress.

  • This video IS IT! So when I get my momma stay at home blues and funk I’ll be putting this on. Sometimes you need that constant reminder. Absolutely love love LOVE this video! Thank you!!

  • This is so nice and so true.. But wud love to see how to cope up with us.. Sharing experience of moms who have done this successfully

  • LOSS OF IDENTITY… waah that lawyer feels EXACTLY the way I feel. Her every word I m living it right now…
    Seeing the first lady made me realise that we are not doing NOTHING we are raising our kids to be better humans tomorrow… We can’t have everything ofcourse but it’s better to be home when our children are small

  • If we start seeing home making and taking care of family members as a lovely responsibility rather than a “women’s job”, both can do this, both should do this, things will be more easier

  • Sometimes I feel these ” Identity crisis “, “inferiority complex” and “Emotional breakdowns” are incepted in our minds specially if you are an educated working women, doing your jobs out of choice.
    There are struggling women out there, if they don’t earn, their kids will starve.
    We as women are stronger emotional beings, we should stop underestimating our capabilities and develop a sense of pride that we are raising a baby to become a good human being.
    It’s ok to stay at home and take care of your kids similarly It’s ok to have a job, it’s your choice.
    Just learn to live a balanced life without regret or guilt,
    Only remember, your decisions should not compromise the well being of your kids.
    Whatever you choose, try to be the best at it.
    I am a CA, my baby daughter is 5 month old and currently I am happy to stay home for her care.
    My mom is a working woman too and she really raised us well.

  • what if (hear me out) WHAT IF both the parents took equal responsibility for child rearing and household work when both the parents were working outside. just an idea, but

  • It’s better to be a single mom than have a husband who never helps.
    Atleast then only one family will be tormenting you for being a bad mother.

  • If u are working mostly husband and their family says u are not giving enough priorities for the kid. We feel struggle in between. If u are full time mother and home maker same people will say you are not fit enough to handle anything. We feel no self worth.

  • So happy to find a fellow lefty that enjoys daily planning and appreciates fast-drying pens! You’re so easy to listen to and watch, too, so I’m glad I found you!

  • Comparing two aspects of women is not sensible… Though it is an issue but one cannot justify or compare anyone’s choices… Working or not working is a choice and both are separate…

  • Taking care of kids is not a problem but taking care of some else son is the biggest problem. Most of the ladies brought up their sons as lazy potato, god if these men understand and agree to help the wives at least 15 %all the issues will be gone we can be more productive and happy in our life. I’m in canada work from 8.30 to 4.45. My day starts from 4.45 to 1..am day where My husbend works at hospital which is 5 minutes walk.do nothing after coming home but complaining about almost everything. I really think is he blind?deaf,or heart less but this is not only in my home almost 90 % asian houses ladies and children facing.most men think their wives are slaves.but still I’m happy that I’m working at least I can by own food if u are not well.

  • love your tips iv been working on this also I have a 2 year old and I am a stay at home mom with 2 small businesses….. GIRL I’M IN MAINE ALSO!!!!��✌����

  • The great story ma’aam…really we all young galz hve thi burden too to decided. Our future bcz we 2 are not free. To decide our identity.bcz of the norms the ssociety put us on.

  • Use head before taking decisions!!!! No body is imposing to have children or to do job or both. Choose wisely and most importantly take decisions that enhance your live (don’t brag or whine about it after)

    There is always a choice, at marriage (to marry gentleman who shares all responsiblities ) and at child birth

    Don’t spoil this sacred relation of motherhood in “ silly logic of modernhood”

    Be smart, responsible, practical and find suitable partner

    Society will be judgemental today, tomorrow and forever
    It’s you and your life that matters

  • Hats off to the makers of this video! You nailed it..you explained what mothers working or not go through! You just won our hearts.. thank you for making this video! Lots of love ������. May God bless your channel.

  • My mother takes care of 7 children and she works too, thats why I’m successful today..
    A mother’s struggle is her strength ����❤️❤️

  • Sometimes I feel this corona situation has shown one new way…were mother’s can work from home also can take care of their childrens…..

  • Love clothing hauls! Been getting ready for fall and changing out clothes and stuff too. Hopefully your vacation isn’t too bad. Traveling with kids you hardly ever get there in the amount of time you think you will so just bring stuff to do in the car for sure.

  • The best part of this debate is nobody talks about men sharing responsibilities to bring up children and help in household chores… Why are only women always lectured about what is good and are supposed to have the largest heart and make all sacrifices alone… As far as kids are concerned they are as much a responsibility of the father as the mother and w.r.t household chores its the man’s house as well so why run away from taking care of it

  • You’re such a good mama! Actually you and Kyle are both great parents. Love to see a glimpse of a day in your life with 4 kiddos. You’re an inspiration working, vlogging, momming, and helping Ellerie with school. I loved how real this video was. Yes am curious about the whole daily Diet Coke run �� does it just taste better from there than at home? Or do you think it’s more of a way to break up the day and get out?

  • Great video! I am retired and have a busy stay at home and on the go life. Loving it! This is one of my absolute favorite planners ever. I would be so disappointed if they ever discontinued this planner. I used the same planner two or three years ago but because I have every planner ever made and have been mainly using Franklin Covey for the past 40 years, I like to switch my planners up from year to year. The other day I was at office depot and they had one left in the daily format for July 2019 through June 2020. I grabbed it up and have been setting it up. I am so happy to be back in this planner. Even though it’s large and I don’t take it with me, I love having it open on my desk. Since I’m not working I use the appointment section for either appointments, obviously, but also I record all my meals in that section. We have a lot of home-improvement projects going on and I have several upcoming trips and this planner gives me the space I need to keep track of everything. The layout fits my requirements in a planner… A place to record appointments, chores, meal plans etc. in the timed section, a to do list which is a must. And a notes section which I find lacking in many planners. Depending on my mood or my needs, I use either a pocket or personal Filofax for on the go or my beloved Franklin Covey compact. But the day designer daily planner is what I use the most. It lies open on my desk and I have one place to record important information. Especially for trips and home-improvement projects or any other projects I’m involved in, even information on my pet… I can record details of conversations, phone numbers, contact info etc. in the notes section. I like having everything in one place! And absolutely love the large monthly boxes. I can plainly see how this would also be so useful for a busy stay at home mom or even anyone who works out of the house. Fingers crossed that they continue making this planner now that founder Whitney Is not producing them anymore.

  • love these tips so much. Could have used them a couple years ago. I have a 2,3 and 4 years old and the first few months after my last son was born I was on my own while my husband was away for work.

  • I have a different planner and prefer a running to do list, but your video gave me some great ideas on a planning flow, and inspiration to stick with it, even if it’s not perfect every day!
