Salary Of Stay At Home Moms – How Much Moms Should Be Earning
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It is unarguable that stay-at-home moms have the most undervalued careers in the country. Moms work as a cook, psychologist, chauffeur, financial manager, household cleaner, personal care aide, childcare worker and many other things. On average, they work 95-100 hours per week. So what is the salary of stay at home moms?

Based on the most time consuming task mothers in the US listed, it is estimated that the salary they will earn for assuming the above mentioned roles is $113,586 per year. Value of the household duties of working moms is also estimated, finding out that they deserve an additional $67,436 per year for the average of 58 hours of work they are able to take on outside their day jobs.

The sad part is that most moms do not give themselves that much credit. Even members of the family do not recognize the important roles their moms play. Moms are irreplaceable because if you attempt to replace them, make sure you have $113,586 per year to pay as salary for whoever will take on the roles and provide the services on the absence of your mother or wife.

Many people think that stay-at-home moms are not making significant contributions to the family in the financial sense. But just because they are not earning a salary, they no longer have financial worth. As a matter of fact, it would be very costly to replace them.

There have been many arguments on what it would cost to raise a child but a huge portion of the cost can be reduced by having a stay at home mom with the kids. This thankless job does not earn in the same way as traditional occupations do but leaving the mother of the family to gather her wages in cuddles and a delayed, sometimes unrecognized feeling of accomplishment.

The amount of work of a stay at home mom multiplies with every child added to the family. A mother with a number of young ones in the home will increase their value. It is tricky to customize the worth of a stay at home mom especially when factoring in the worth of thee services required of her on a typical day. Aside from the obvious ones like babysitting, driving and cooking, there are those that may not attribute immediately to moms and it could have a value of $25 or higher per hour. That may include event planner, psychologist and gardener.

The life of a stay at home mom is not as challenging, some mothers rise to the instances of demanding household budget and earn traditional income from home at the same time. While in many cases it is not always possible to earn two task wages for the same hour like doing household cleaning and consulting with a client, most mothers combined working hours for their professional as well as mother job. This puts them easily at more than a hundred hours of work per week. This additional strain on moms is not usually put there because they want it. Most single moms and those who replace the income of an out of work partner find that working from home may appear difficult but can offer the best of both worlds.
