“Stay at home moms are lazy?”

Oh come on!

I can’t believe this so-called “mommy war” is still going on.  Stay at home, work at home, working moms, part-time working moms – can’t we all just get along?

Seriously! Why has Anderson Cooper resurrected this so-called mom war between stay-at-home moms and working moms?

Some women can’t afford to stay home; some women don’t want to.  Period.  It’s our own, individual choice and no one has the right to judge.  Everyone does what is best for their family and frankly, that’s nobody else’s business.

Watch the video and let me know what you think!

  1. He is just a moron and the women who play along for 15 minutes of fame are despicable.

  2. I agree 100% with what you’ve said Maria. It’s a pity that we judge each other so harshly. I think the focus should be more on happy kids and happy mothers – however we get there. There is no best way – only our own way.

  3. They can call it lazy. It’s a good thing I don’t have to justify my choices to other moms.

    I don’t believe that moms at home are lazy. I find them great moms because they are doing all the household chores that are not easy. Taking care of their children and everything.
