well we can agree to disagree because there are several women who make the sacrifice and choice to stay at home with their children until they are all in grade school and then go back to work.  and taking care of 2-3 kids damn near 24 hours a day IS work whether they are your own or not.  that's considered a small daycare...
 
there are daycare "workers" who have NO children of their own...are they not working hard? 
 
sahw i would say is a luxury.

Yeah but those aren't their kids. It's nobody's responsibility to watch what you give birth to and that' why you have to either do it yourself or pay for it. The two can't really be compared.

I agree to disagree.

exactly.  however, its the same effort correct?  so, would you think a sahm(or dad) of 1 who watched  2 children who are not their own for free was "working"...you see where this is going....

interesting.  so in your mind...work is only work if you get paid for it.  i see...Thumbs Up
 
because i assume in that same scenario, if the sahm was receiving payment for the other 2 she would be actually "working" in your mind then...

I don't see where this is going but no, they are doing a favor that they are really only able to do because they aren't working...

Volunteering is work but watching your niece or nephew isn't. It's the lack of self interest that makes it work imo.

If you do it for a friend or a neighbor then you're doing it because you know them and want to help or because you want to be able to ask for a favor when you need it. If you or someone you know directly are the ones benefittng then how is it work? In that case I could detangle my hair and say I was working all day. 
 
lol...ok...this is funny as hell now...
