Study Reveals Stay-At-Home Moms Should Earn At Least This Much Money

in Trending

Being a parent is often unappreciated hard work, unless you are one of thos who regard your kids as “payment,” not one mother gets payment for her stressful work. Each year Salary.com estimates what moms would earn if parenting did pay like a real” job.

The company made a list of all the “hybrid roles” that moms play, including executive housekeeper, bookkeeper, and teacher. Combining current salary details to calculate a medium annual “salary” for moms multiple roles.

This year, it came up with a salary of $162,581. Well its seems Salary.com thinks moms should be rich?! Guess what we agree — moms should be rich.

Although its highly unlikely that moms will ever actually get paid a salary, it’s a useful experiment. The high number demonstrates just how much work moms really do as multi task.

We would like to recognize both professional and stay-at-home Moms on their unwavering dedication to their families and responsibilities,” says Salary.com.

Stay-at-home moms work almost nonstop, as they take on many roles. On a normal day, a mom may do the equivalent work of a nanny, housecleaner, chauffeur, and bookkeeper, among other duties.

Naturally, stay-at-home moms don’t get paid for these tasks as they are forced to find another way to make it work financially. Moms often have to rely upon their spouses, dig into savings, or go back to work earlier than expected.

What if stay-at-home moms did get paid the average wage for the many jobs they do?

Each year, Salary.com does the math to figure it out. “We selected a handful of jobs that reflect a day in the life of a Mom,” says the posting. Using its handy “Salary Wizard,” Salary.com input all of the current salary information for those jobs.

Some of the jobs that it used for its “hybrid salary” included academic adviser, CEO, groundskeeper, laundry manager, staff nurse, and day care center teacher.

The resulting salary: $162,581.

According to calculations, stay-at-home moms work an average of 96 hours on a weekly basis.

2018’s annual salary is $5,000 higher than previous yearly calculations. In actual fact, the salary continues to increase every year!

Salary.com expresses that the salary is for all moms, even working ones. Theoretically, all mothers do some combination of these jobs on a regular daily basis.

The internet have a cast range of feelings regarding the salary figure mentioned.

Many are in favour of how high the salary is, although motherhood is hard work, maybe some people don’t actually recognise just how hard it is.

Some regarded the salary as an insult to working moms, who also do their share of parenting work throughout the day.

Naturally countless men said “WHAT ABOUT DADS?” Well If they do the same work, then the salary should be the same.

Other people seem to disagree with the notion that a financial figure should be put on parenting. Its your decision to have children, so you should happily do the work for free, according to this person.

To say one deserves a salary for these things is absurd. Having a family is a decision to take on these responsibilities,” one working mom agreed. “It is not a career. It is not employment.”

One mom even injected a little humour into this tense conversation.

She threw in a joke about the dime that she found while doing laundry the other day.

Everyone knows that moms aren’t going to begin getting a salary in their bank accounts for their hard work anytime soon. The point is to remind folks that parenting is work.

Instead of arguing about the specifics, maybe just text your mom and say thank you.

If you agree mothers are worth as much then PLEASE share this post with your friends on Facebook.

Driver Gets Karma After He Attempts To Destroy Bigs Kid’s 9ft Snowman, When He Realises Whats Underneath

in Trending/Uncategorized

Cody Lutz, his fiancée Lucy, and his soon-to-be sister-in-law enjoyed the recent snowfall in Petersburg, Kentucky. Lucy had never caught sight of so much snow as she grew up in Mississippi. So the excited trio decided to build a huge, towering snowman.

Once their snow project was complete the couple shared the picture on Facebook, proudly displaying Frosty the 9-Foot-Tall Snowman with his black top hat and bright smile.

Cody decided to use a large tree stump in their yard as the base to build a more stable snowman So they covered the exposed bark with a mound of snow.

Happy with the masterpiece, Lutz went to work on Monday, but when he returned home he found tire tracks in his yard which ran from the edge of his yard to the base of the snowman.

It transpires that Frosty’s lower half was crushed and the tree trunk’s bark was slightly exposed.

It appears a rude and careless driver purposely tried to drive the car into poor Frosty — but didn’t think he would get his karma instead.

What they didn’t count on, is the massive stump in the center,” Cody says.

He continues, “You know, what goes around comes around, in good ways and bad ways. So, I guess everyone learns a valuable lesson here from Frosty.”

Take a look at the video of Frosty below:

Mom with advanced dementia starts to remember again once son feeds her two specific foods each day

in Trending

Mark Hatzer realized that his 82-year-old mom Sylvia was in the early stages of dementia about three years ago.

Once she became a danger to herself he was forced to bring her to the hospital.

Sylvia didn’t even recognize her own son, as the illness became so bad she even accused one of the nurses of kidnapping her.

Luckily she regained her memory after months of following a particular diet.

Perhaps this could be a groundbreaking discovery in the fight against dementia.

1987 Mark’s father died of a heart attack, he was concerned that he may lose both parents when his 82-year-old mother developed dementia.

Mark didn’t administer the prescription medication that was given to Sylvia for her disease.

Instead, as it quickly advanced to a severe stage he designed a special diet to help fight dementia.

Mark discovered that dementia was less common in countries around the Mediterranean after extensive research, that it couldn’t just be a coincidence.

He was considering something completely different by attempting to give his mother a similar diet to Mediterranean countries.

Mark explains “Everyone knows about fish but there is also blueberries, strawberries, Brazil nuts, and walnuts – these are apparently shaped like a brain to give us a sign that they are good for the brain.”

Included in Sylvia’s diet were food such as broccoli, oats, sweet potatoes, green tea, and dark chocolate.

The transformation was incredible after months on this strict diet, as memory slowly began to return.

Mark says “It wasn’t an overnight miracle but after a couple of months she began remembering things like birthdays and was becoming her old self again, more alert, more engaged.”

People think that once you get a diagnosis your life is at an end. You will have good and bad days but it doesn’t have to be the end,” he concludes.

Sue Clark, a representative from the “Alzheimer’s Society” believes there is no recognized cure for dementia currently, nor anything that can prevent it.

She does, agree that healthy food and cognitive exercise can help.

“I did this for my mum – she has got the condition and she has done all the hard work – but if what we’ve achieved can benefit other people as well then that’s great,” Mark says.

In honor of the potentially revolutionary discovery, the 82-year-old has been invited to Queen Elizabeth’s annual summer party.

This woman had the perfect response when a waitress refused to take her order

in Uncategorized

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the ‘Senior Special’ was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99.

“Sounds good,” my wife said, “but I don’t want the eggs.”

“Then I’ll have to charge you $3.49 because you’re ordering a la carte,” the waitress warned her.

“You mean I’d have to pay more for not taking the eggs?” my wife asked incredulously.

“Yes,” said the waitress.

“I’ll take the special, then,” my wife said.

“How do you want your eggs?” the waitress asked.

“Raw and in the shell,” my wife replied.

She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.

The lesson? Don’t try to outsmart a senior

Love Story Of Married Couple Who Served Together In WWII, Ends On The Same Day After 70 Years.

in Trending

A romance which began with a simple blind date, many decades ago, blossomed into a true love story for the ages. This couple, who spent more than 70 years together sadly passed away within hours of each other.

In the early 1940’s, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Isabell Whitney and Preble Staver met each other on a blind date. The seed of love was planted, but it would take time before it could fully blossom.

While world War II raged in Europe both Isabell and Preble joined the Allies’ effort against the Nazis. Stationed in Maryland, Isabell worked as a Navy nurse while Preble became a Marine and earned a Bronze Star for his bravery.

On 15 February, 1946 Isabell and Preble were finally married almost five months after the war ended.

It was the start of a beautiful 70 year marriage that would end as beautifully as it began.

Isabell and Preble Staver had five children together following their marraige. Isabell was the rock of the family as Preble transitioned several times in his career. When their son Peter died tragically playing football in his senior year of high school, they supported each other.

Isabell decided to return to nursing once all the children were raised and grown up.

The couple’s 62 year old daughter Laurie Staver Clinton, describes her parents.

They were great people. Mom really taught me that you can’t change another person but you can change your attitude towards them,” Laurie said.

Dad was a bit of a prickly pear! Dad was the strict one. Mom tried to be strict, but we knew what we could get away with her. It was pretty much a father rules the roost sort of thing.

The couple moved into a long-term care facility in Norfolk, Virginia in 2003 when Isabell was diagnosed with dementia.

It was heartbreaking for Preble to see his wife battle dementia, which sadly resulted in them being placed in different rooms. Thankfully Isabell still remembered him.

Sometimes, we’d have to tell her to focus and look but when she looked and knew it was dad, she’d get that little smile,” Laurie explains.

On his 96th birthday Preble requested to have one more nap with his wife.

Arrangements were put in place by staff to accomodate his request for the couple to lie beside each other for a few hours.

Laurie said: “There was not a single word spoken between the two of them. They held hands and just fell asleep. I told dad, ‘This is mom’s birthday present for you.’ He was just so happy that he got to take his nap with her.”

Laurie was told that it was time to say goodbye to her mother on 25 October. Both herself and her father went in to say their final farewell together.

He held her hand, and it was just so tender. I asked him if he wanted to stay after the prayers, and he shook his head. I said, ‘Okay, but you know that means you’re going to have to let go of her hand?’ I was crying, and he was crying,” Laurie said.

Later that day Isabell passed away only for Preble to follow her hours later. The couple were born 14 days apart and passed away within 14 hours of each other. Laurie shares the secret to her parents’ lasting 70 year marriage.

“Mom and dad really lived out that, if you make a commitment, and even though life gets rough or life gets in the way, you work through life, and you live your life together.”

An Open Letter To The People Who Don’t Tip Their Servers

in Uncategorized

Dear Person Who Has No Idea How Much The 0 In The “Tip:” Line Matters,
I want to by asking you a simple question: Why?

Is it because you can’t afford it? Is it because you are blind to the fact that the tip you leave is how the waiter/waitress serving you is making their living? Is it because you’re just lazy and you “don’t feel like it”?

Is it because you think that, while taking care of not only your table but at least three to five others, they took too long bringing you that side of ranch dressing? Or is it just because you’re unaware that as a server these people make $2.85 an hour plus TIPS?
The average waiter/waitress is only supposed to be paid $2.13 an hour plus tips according to the US Department of Labor.
That then leaves the waiter/waitress with a paycheck with the numbers $0.00 and the words “Not a real paycheck.” stamped on it. Therefore these men and women completely rely on the tips they make during the week to pay their bills.
So, with that being said, I have a few words for those of you who are ignorant enough to leave without leaving a few dollars in the “tip:” line.
Imagine if you go to work, the night starts off slow, then almost like a bomb went off the entire workplace is chaotic and you can’t seem to find a minute to stop and breathe, let alone think about what to do next.

Imagine that you are helping a total of six different groups of people at one time, with each group containing two to ten people.
Imagine that you are working your ass off to make sure that these customers have the best experience possible. Then you cash them out, you hand them a pen and a receipt, say “Thank you so much! It was a pleasure serving you, have a great day!”
Imagine you walk away to attempt to start one of the seventeen other things you need to complete, watch as the group you just thanked leaves, and maybe even wave goodbye.
Imagine you are cleaning up the mess that they have so kindly left behind, you look down at the receipt and realize there’s a sad face on the tip line of a $24.83 dollar bill.
Imagine how devastated you feel knowing that you helped these people as much as you could just to have them throw water on the fire you need to complete the night.
Now, realize that whenever you decide not to tip your waitress, this is nine out of ten times what they go through. I cannot stress enough how important it is for people to realize that this is someone’s profession – whether they are a college student, a single mother working their second job of the day, a new dad who needs to pay off the loan he needed to take out to get a safer car for his child, your friend, your mom, your dad, your sister, your brother, you.

Single mom stunned when she finds out who her 2 adopted kids really are ; so is everyone else

in Trending

Katie Price’s first marriage ended when she was in her early thirties, so she decided it was time to embark on a whole new chapter of her life.

She changed career and moved into a new home in Colorado and decided to adopt a foster child. On previous occasions Katie had struggled with her fertility, but was always interested in adopting.

In 2016 through a caseworker, Katie became aware of a 4-day-old boy who had been dropped off at the local hospital. Katie called him Grayson. A court terminated his biological parents‘ right to claim him, after she fostered him for 11 months Katie now had a son for life and the adoption was made on his 11-month birthday.

Little did Katie realise what she was about to discover…

Katie relished motherhood, and soon decided that she was keen on adding to her little family in the future. Of course, she knew it was better to wait a while and adjust to life with Grayson before throwing another child into the mix, but potentially considered adoption again in two years time.

About a month later, Katie received a phone call from another caseworker about a bad situation. Apparently a newborn baby girl was dropped off at Grayson hospital and was in need of placement urgently.

As Katie explains: “I know over the next 10 minutes and subsequent phone calls I made that afternoon, the phrase ‘I know I am crazy, but God is telling me to say YES’ kept coming out of my mouth.”

Baby Hannah was taken to Katie’s house hours later where she now had a new mother and brother.

It wasn’t until Katie took a closer look at Hannah’s hospital bracelet that she realised just how special her decision was to foster Hannah.

The birth mother’s first name was the same name Grayson’s birth mother gave the hospital.

Katie made a decision to dig a little deeper while searching through Hannah’s discharge papers, she discovered that Grayson’s birth mother also shared the same birth date.

Was it just a coincidence?

Katie now accepts that Grayson and Hannah don’t t look alike, however she still had a sneaky suspicion that somehow they were both related.

“Grayson is half African American with beautiful darker skin and dark curly hair,” Katie shared on her blog. “Baby Girl has a pale white skin tone with straight red-blonde hair.”

To seek the truth, Katie tracked down Hannah’s real birth mother. Once she eventually located her, they also realized that she was also Grayson’s biological mother.

Later on a DNA test confirmed that both Grayson and Hannah are actually half-siblings.

“What if Baby Girl had gone to another family?” Katie continues in her blog. “We would have never found her or Grayson’s mother. The connection would have never been made!

“I could not believe the miracle that had just happened.”

In December 2018, Katie officially adopted Hannah so she is more than happy now.

“That day I said ‘Yes’ to taking the Baby Girl I felt the strangest feeling ever. I don’t think I had truly until that moment felt a undeniable calling from God (or whatever higher spirit you personally might believe in).

“My brain was telling me to say ‘no’ because it made no sense and was not in my plans, but something inside kept saying you have to say ‘YES’. It is a sheer miracle, once in a lifetime chance… call it what you will, but it is amazing that my children found each other.”

Mom Refuses To Answer Door, Then Delivery Guy Calls Child Protective Services On Her

in Trending

Patty Levreault, a mother from Connecticut was rattled one morning when she was home at home with her children. The doorbell happened to ring while her son and daughter were watching some television in the living room.

Levreault saw that it was a delivery man and didn’t feel like answering the door as she was still in her pyjama’s.

“I was just like, okay, well, I’m going to see if he leaves his package on the porch,” Levreault explains. “I went to the bathroom and five minutes later, three cop cars showed up.”

The delivery person thought her two children were home on their own and decided to report the situation to child services. The mother was naturally concerned that she would go to jail or that the children would be taken away.

I was mortified,” said Levreault.

Levreault feels this incident is a part of a larger trend called “parent shaming”. Strangers make quick judgments about other parents without obtaining all of the necessary information to make those judgments. It is like parents are expected to be perfect 100 percent of the time, and others are looking for reasons to point out their failures.

People are shamed today for letting their child play in front of their house in an unfenced yard and letting a child walk to school alone,” said Dana Points, Editor-in-Chief of Parents magazine.

The majority of calls to Child Protective Services are unfounded according to new data. Each year, calls of possible child abuse are up 12 percent to 3.5 million, while actual child abuse is down 4 percent to about 679,000 real cases.

Although it is great that people want to be sure that children are safe, it is important to fully assess the situation first.

Take a look at the video below for more details on this topic:
