In a story tangentially related to our dual income discussion last week, a recent survey has finally put a price tag on the amount of work mom (or dad, I say) would do if she/he stayed at home. It is impressive. Salary.com reports that a stay-at-home parent does the equivalent work of a job that pays $134,000 per year. Once you add up the teaching, the feeding, the chaufferring, the cleaning, the accounting, and all the other good stuff, that seems about right to me. (HT: Rod Dreher)
Did I mention Mother’s Day is coming up?
