Not only are the stay at home mothers not paid at that time, they are worth very very little during the retirement years.
Social Security shunned me , I was short one credit hour ( period) and could not receive a disability because. I mostly stayed at home with my children .
So , I at least gave a few hours of volunteer work helping the little ones that had working mommies.
No regret, I was very limited with my time, I was not well.i did what I could and left when I had to leave.
Its really hard to think that a country has no value for women that stay home and raise children.
One compensation is SAHM( stay at home moms ) rarely need to buy a ton of nice clothes. The little ones really don’t care if your all Aeropostaled up . Funny, I never felt looked down upon, I loved my job!
