[ - ] Stop with all the new SAHM BS, what's going on with this site, has it been taken over by mormon moms or is this some bitter former WOHM, who cannot find a job, trying to justify how her choice to never go back to work is superior? Yeah, we get it, that you feel #blessed to be able to afford to stay home and you truly succeed at being a great mom, educator of your kids, crafty housewife, amazing cook, etc, etc. Many of us are not and will never be and to be honest, never cared about domestic stuff. Yes, we have kids, since we are human beings, which like most species have an urge to reproduce. Yes, we even enjoy and love our kids and make lots of sacrifices for them every day. But we are not great SAHMs and never will be and don't care about SAH. We need external world stimulation and being away from our homes, talking about non-childcare related topics, for a few hours a day to not go nuts. Financial situation irrelevant, many of us will continue being WOHMs, end of conversation. 97 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Full time means that is your primary career. It's a figure of speech. If mothering is your primary way of spending time then you are a full time mom. Why must you be offended that other people spend more time mothering than you? How would you have preferred she ask the question? "Are you a SAHM or WOHM?" Sounds crass [ Reply | More ]

This. She's not suggesting they aren't moms all of the time, just that they aren't full time moms. For example you are still a "doctor" all of the time whether you work full time or part time as a doctor. Just like you are still a mom all of the time whether you do it full time or outsource and do it some of the time. It's still your identity. The person asking that question was simple making conversation about how you spend your time. I highly doubt she meant any offense [ Reply | More ]

SAHM or WOHM sounds exactly like it's supposed to be, a right way to describe the daytime occupation, it's a precise technical term, nothing crass about it. Part time or full time mom? This makes no sense. It seems to apply to divorced moms, who either have full custody of kids or spend part time with them. Comparing a part time custody mother with the working mother, who is home every day and lives in the same family unit as kids is irrational. [ Reply | More ]

Then ask if someone is a fulltime caregiver, since you're so focused on this. By assigning "Mom" to the label, you are very willfully trying to say something about WOHMs. As a SAHM, I don't mind saying this is exactly why SAHMs get flamed on this board. It makes us sound mean, petty, and not to mention idiotic. [ Reply | More ]

From now on I will phrase the question as caregiver rather than mom so as not to offend overly literal people like yourself. You would do well to lighten up and realize she was only trying to make conversation, and getting your panties in a bunch only makes you look stupid. In the English language of our culture, full time mom means primary caregiver. They are interchangeable designations. You sound insufferable. [ Reply | More ]

You aren't disproving my point. Yes, you're still a mom when you're at work just like DH is still a lawyer when he gets home from work, but you're not a full time mom if you work outside the home.

As if most people's jobs don't involve a lot of drudgery or mind-numbing meetings (or the like) as well! Yes, some people are lucky enough to have truly exciting jobs, but those people are the exception, certainly not the rule (based on many polls). Both sides in this debate need to lose the attitude.

Prior to middle school, scores are 1-4. Beginning 6th grade, grades are out of 100. I don't know anyone that gets 'all 100s' but grades vary depending on the student. I didn't personally notice a drop in middle school grades. Many students get high 90's, some I'm guessing get 70s, 80s and low 90s. That said, there are many opportunities to do well: tests, projects, papers, etc. If a student works hard, getting good grades shouldn't be a problem. Those who put in less effort definitely receive lower grades. Work starts to kick up in 5th grade and then a bit more in 6th. No big adjustment period. [ Reply | More ]

seems slightly but not dramatically overpriced but it's not the wrong strategy for a seller with a newly renovated place in a rising market. Not my cup of tea because of 4th Floor overlooking busy 3 Av and squeezes more bedrooms by making rooms tiny and sacrificing any semblance of width in the hallway. Ruppert Tower isn't terribly cultural for a building. [ Reply | More ]

In 2009, the company I worked for did something similar, so I did leave, before I even had another job lined up. But back then, I was not married and did not have SKs, so I was able to just quit without worrying about how it affected other people. [ Reply | More ]

My neighbor works for Pfizer and this just happened to her. At Pfizer, she said it's 12%. Not to be a goody-two-shoes about it - but it's better than having them announce layoffs, and then living in fear for the next month or two. [ Reply | More ]

"There was a gang of Hungarians that wanted their own mob. They realized that to be in power you didn't need guns, or money or even numbers. You just needed the will to do what the other guy wouldn't. After a while they came into power and came after Soze. They came to his home, in the afternoon, looking for his business. They find his wife and kids in the house and decide to wait for Soze. He comes home to find his wife raped and children screaming. The Hungarians knew he was tough and not to be trifled with. So they let him know they meant business, by slicing the neck on his son. They tell him they want his territory, all his business. Soze looks over the faces of his family; then he shows these men of will what will really was." [ Reply | More ]

In the west, the tradition for a few centuries now (at least since the Enlightenment) has been for the youths to challenge and in many cases reject the moral/religious strictures of their parents. The weird thing about the Middle East is that the exact opposite is happening since the 1950's or so - children are becoming fanatically religious and ultra-conservative, even though their parents may have been more secular. It's like their brains just aren't working right or something. Youths are supposed to seek freedom from restraint; not to impose horrible new restraints on themselves and everyone around them.

to put the savagery of world war 2 into perspective for a war fought in today's time to be as equally bad 175 million people or so would have to die in just 8 years. [ Reply | More ]
