How Much Is The Position Of "Stay-At-Home Mom" Worth?

by Jon Henshaw

Salary.com has an interesting article on what it would cost to provide the same kind of care that a stay-at-home mom provides.

Stay-at-home mothers wear many hats. They’re the family CEO, the day care provider, accountant, chauffeur, counselor, chef, nurse, laundress, entertainer, personal stylist, and educator. Based on a 100-hour work week, Salary.com has estimated that a fair wage for the typical stay-at-home mom would be $131,471 for executing all of her daily tasks.

In my opinion, being a stay-at-home mom is a priceless job. And with the right perspective, is beneficial to the entire family, and is worth much more than the salary calculated by Salary.com.
