Would you be embarrassed to tell your friends your mom is a homemaker as a career choice?.?

If all your friends mothers had lucrative careers but your mother just took care of the household affairs would you be humiliated to say this?.


WEll I guess I made a mistake with this question. I am a homemaker!!1 AHHHH Someone told me my daughter would be ashamed of me and I wanted to hear these answers but instead I hurt ppl by asking the wrong question... I feel very bad. I am very sorry.

    Wow...I'm sure glad you're not my son! I was a stay at home mom and my kids loved the fact that I was there for them instead of being in day care or wherever. Geeze... when you get married, are you expecting that your wife have a "lucrative career" and your kids go to day care? What's your choice in life? A half of a lucrative career because you expect your wife to support the other half of the family income? Geeze.... disgust me. You should walk a mile in an "at home mom's shoes". Then tell me what you think. I have a feeling you couldn't do this "lucrative career". I bet you couldn't do any lucrative career. Yes "lucrative" ... you should meet my kids! They're thoughtful, smart and just wonderful. They're going to make great husbands.

    I'm sorry, I can't believe you asked such a question and I'm happy to see all the other answers suggesting the same.

    No. As a homemaker I am proud of what I do. I have two very active young children that require constant attention. My day is very full with meals, baths, play-time, learning, cleaning, laundry, making dinner for my husband, grocery shopping....and the list goes on. I wish my mother had the choice to be a homemaker when I was younger.

    You must be from the states to have problems like this. How can you even think of being embarrassed of your mom? In some European countries they've set a monthly salary that a homemaker 'would' make if it were a real job and let me tell you it's better than average

    No more embarrassed than I was to have to tell people that my mother is a professional Astrologer and Spiritualist Medium

    what job is more lucrative than being a mother and raising children to be mature, responsible adults

    I won't.

    It mean your dad is well to do and your mum no need to work to supplement the house income.

    I wish my wife no need to work and take care the children, but it just hard to do so with my current pay and cost of living.

    Don't be stupid.

    Unless you see 'lucrative career' as being the alpha and omega of success.

    No. I would be quite proud to say it, and maybe feel a little sorry for all those friends.
