Does anyone ever get any grief from other women because you are a stay at home mom?

I get it all the time from other women that have careers and they basically make you feel worthless because you stay at home. It to me is terrible how women feel about that. It is my choice to stay home with my children and just because I do doesn't mean I am sitting on my butt doing nothing. My job is 24/7 I do not get breaks or sick days. I have done both worked full time and taking of my children. But my choice right now is to be home with my kids and just because I want to do that does not make me a bad person

I do not see why these women would say anything bad about you being a stay at home mom. being a stay at home mom is one of the hardest jobs there is. I am a stay at home mom and i feel sorry for those moms who are not cuz they are missing out on so much of their kids lifes. I think they are just mad cuz they can't stay home like you.

I used to all the time from friends of ours. Now my son is in elementary school & there are a lot of stay at home parents there. It also helps to have 2 stay at home parents nearby (a dad on the next block). Just keep remembering why you chose to stay at home. Sometimes I wonder if the ones that made me feel worthless were the ones who really wanted what I have?
