Stay at home mothers and fathers, if you could earn a salary do you know how much that would be? Think you could guess?
Working parents, who work equally as hard as stay at home parents, do you know how much you could command in salary? Single parents, care to get in on the discussion? Do you know your salary worth as a parent?
I LOVE this giveaway featured in Blissfully Domestic Magazine. While, we all know that parents cannot command salaries from their spouses, children or families (or the government, although executives and banks do it often and call it a bailout), it is comforting and empowering to know that we as parents MATTER.
Too often, we forget that kissing away tears, banishing boogeymen, and tossing around a football is equally as important, if not more important, than holding down a traditional 9 to 5 job. Yes, we want to provide for our children and make sure they have a better life; but we cannot and should not dismiss the fact that children need our presence more than they need our presents.
I went to Salary.com and discovered that were I to command a salary, I could claim upwards of $112,000 a year! The way I figure it, that’s still too low but if you were to throw in a pair of these beauties, we could call it even.
Parents, don’t ever forget how much you matter in the lives of your children and family. While Salary.com can somewhat calculate your salary value, the impact you have on your children is priceless! You are a one-of-a-kind original whose worth cannot be measured.
