Sadly the SAHM section here appears to be a mish mash of discussions about all manner of things, digressing from the very important issue of a SAHM. It made it a boring read for me, to see everything I could have found elsewhere on other communities pages. I can to Circle of moms for a serious group discussion for SAHM and issues around the staying at home as opposed to husband doing it, or mum going back to work. It is a profound issue that deeply involves the politics of our society that undermines the very essence of being allowed to be a SAHM, but I need to get past all this drivel that could be placed in other catagories. Sharing recipes, clothing and labour issues should not, in my opinion, be here.

The issues you say that shouldn't be here are all a part of our everyday lives (cooking and clothing especially) so I don't see why they shouldn't be here.

The point of the SAHM community is to discuss and help each other in our day to day lives and if that includes asking for meal ideas then it's more than welcome. It would be horrible if we could only post recipes in a community just for recipes or only discuss our children's tantrums in that community.

I'm sorry you found it boring to read what others have asked for help with. You are more than welcome to start threads on topics that you find interesting instead of criticizing what is already here.

Michelle,
SAHM Admin.

It's a community for all issues for SAHMs. I am pretty sure all those things you listed that shouldn't be here (in your opinion) are still issues SAHMs chat about. If you want a different type of discussion here, then start a topic of your own!

No worries, SAHM, it's just an odd thing to do, and when something is odd on CoM I have a tendency to wonder.... :)

So, I did start a new thread, for those SAHMs with issues that involve the politics of being a SAHM. It can be found under the All Communities/Stay At Home Moms section.

I changed my ID because of a violent stalker husband.

Jodi is correct--this is a forum designed to support SAHM's in ALL of their issues, struggles, successes, etc. Even the simple, mundane day to day annoyances.

That said, I think a thread about ways our society impacts our roles as sahm's would be very interesting and I would like to be a part of it.
Start the thread! Or start several threads on different, more in depth topics. It sounds like you have a lot to offer, and we'd love to see it.

Hmmm...I am a stay at home mom too and I can relate. I actually struggle with it and wanted to talk about that a bit myself. My struggles include dealing with work issues of when I should go or whatever. Mother father roles and responsibilities. and other things. We can start a discussion at any time about issues. Start one and maybe you'll get some responses, I am sure me and you are not the only ones wanting to have the types of discussions you're talking about.
