A few organizations have attempted to quantify the monetary worth of stay-at-home moms. Salary.com, for example, estimates that stay-at-home moms work hours a week in 2016, and should be compensated with a yearly salary of $143,102. That’s because your mom’s responsibilities include acting as your family’s cook, housekeeper, emotional and psychological therapist, janitor, nutritionist, photographer, driver, and a million and one other tasks.
So, give your mom the day off! Let her kick her feet up and tune in to her favorite show, read her favorite book, or just take a nap while you take over responsibilities for the day. If you don’t have time to take over for an entire day, make some coupons for each chore that she can redeem throughout the year. You’ll not only be providing your mom with a well-deserved break—you’ll better appreciate how difficult it is to be a mom.
