I am in school full time right now and a stay at home mom. I am currently taking my fall classes online as I just had my son 8 weeks ago. I am taking 3 full classes and they require homework, papers and discussion boards. In my PSY101 class we recently had a discussion on stress due. When I posted that I encounter stress trying to read my text, do the coursework, be a wife and mom my classmate responded that I should not be "complaining" because being a stay at home mom and wife "wasn't a real job." OMG....I was pissed!!! I want to see them do laundry, nurse a baby, cook meals and do homework assignments all at once. Why do people think they can take away from what a mother and wife do just because we don't get a paycheck for it?
