Good to help out, but ouch, you get nobody to understand you and no real rewards for your work; even gratitude.

Very good if you can afford to stay home. But most women not only have to hold down a full-time job, but come home and put in another several hours of work.

This is a very demanding but rewarding job- I believe strongly that it is the most important job a mother could have. It definitely is 24/7, and challenging at times, but I can't imagine doing anything else. I feel sad for families that don't have someone there making their home welcoming- and for those who have children and could stay home and raise them (but don't)- why did you have children in the first place??? I get tired of people downplaying the role of the homemaker- get off your highhorse!!!

Can be the most demanding and most rewarding job. Certainly one that is underrated in terms of its importance. It's too bad that more families can't have a full time homemaker. To all those who don't think that being a homemaker is a real job, you either have a lazy spouse or you don't have kids (as with all jobs, there are a certain number who will do an outstanding job, more who will do an average job and some who were just not meant to be a homemaker). I appaud those who take on this responsibility seriously.

There is nothing dishonorable about someone who spends their time running a house as long as the other partner makes enough money to keep them afloat financially.Especially if there are kids to raise,it can be more demanding than many full time jobs.Considering the cost and risks of daycare or babysitters,sometimes it can even save some money or work out even.Unfortunately today,most couples do not have this option.

I'm very passionately for gender equality but the tendency among feminists to devalue this profession greatly saddens me. Cooking, cleaning, washing and attending to the needs of the young are tasks just as arduous as factory work or office work. Children can be just as demanding and tenacious as any boss, if not more so! Also, in this modern age where children increasingly find role models on television or morality on the internet, a strong parental presence is even more important now than it ever was.

I have to hand it to any person that is a homemaker. Think about it, you don't get a 15 min. break, you are on call 24/7/365, you want to talk about multitasking!!! Kudos to all the homemakers out there because they probably have the hardest job in existance!

I've been in the military, had children and I am now out. I've been teaching preschool for three years and recently decided to go to school for teaching. I stay at home, go to school, and I am brownie leader. My daughter is in first grade and my son goes to preschool. To me a homemaker is not someone who just stays home and watches TV. A homemaker is someone who keeps everything together at home. It takes alot of patience to take care of children. I myself always thought both parents should work, but after I had children something in my heart changed. I wanted to be their for them. Now I want to make sure the house is a stress free place for my family. I want to make sure when my husband and family come home each day the house is clean, the yard work is done, and we can sit down to a nice dinner. I don't want them to have to worry about all the things we have to do at home or if I'm going to be their or not to help them with their home work. So I think a homemaker is a very important job. I love to be able to take care of my family and I respect homemakers for their patience and passion to make sure their family is happy. After all wouldn't you want someone in your home that does all that so you don't have to?

I am sick and tired of die hard feminist saying that is not a job. A woman chooses to have kids and be a mother just as much as she choose weather not not she wants to be a Graphic Designers, or a Mill Worker. But unlike like a woman working out side the home a homemaker is on the job 24 hours a day 7 days a week, there are no vacations, and no retirement plans. Untop of all of that a homemaker, must put up with the naysays of the world. However the job can be most rewarding.

NOPE. NOT AN OCCUPATION. I don't care what all the Oprah-watching, minivan-driving, pick-the-kids-up-from-soccer women have to say. THIS IS NOT A JOB. I'm not saying it's not hard. But I'm sick of hearing women complain they have the hardest job in the world by doing this. You chose to have the kids, and you choose to take care of them. They're part of your life, not part of your workload.

The most grueling job in the world, probably because mine involves teething twins and on top of it, there's no pay or 401k! The hours are awful and usually extend from 7AM to 10-11 PM with some interruptions at night for feedings. I have been a student, a sales clerk, a Peace Corps volunteer, a pre-school teacher, a secretary and waitress but nothing could have ever prepared me for the work of a stay at home mom. I wouldn't give it up for anything though.

I think this moniker was made up by housewives who never held a job a day in their life and decided to stay at home and watch soap operas all day long.

No doubt there is a lot of work involved in being a homemaker. I wouldn't exactly call it an occupation, though. You don't have to get up and be at a job everyday, and answer to a boss who may or may not know more about the job than you do. There is not near the stress you would have at a regular job.

Homemaker, housewife, domestic engineer - whatever you call it this has never been an option for me and most of the time I’m not sure I wanted it to be. I do think it works well for families especially if there are small children involved. I was once rather hard on women who did have this option – I thought that contributing to their families well being was commendable but that they were missing out on some kind of creative or intellectual fulfillment that could not be attained without working outside the home. I now see this as pretty narrow minded on my part. As a good friend of mine has proven, you can have both worlds, you just have to plan it well and learn to give and take. Something I think many homemakers do very well indeed.

Later in my life I plan to be a housewife, I'm old fashioned and believe someone should stay at home and take care of the family and house(if the family can afford to do so). I'm only 21 and don't want kids or a husband until I'm in my 30's, so I have plenty of time. I think being a homemaker has to be an exteamly difficult job you don't get paid, you never get a day off, and it doesn't get alot of respect. I have many other skills besides cooking and cleaning but would prefer taking care of my family, when I have one.

I just don't get it when people say that a career as a homemaker is not fulfilling or that people who are homemakers have no skills. I'm currently NOT a homemaker, but if I ever get married and have children, that is the path I would want to choose to take. I already have skills (working on a Master's right now, do therapy at a children's home and work in an office) so I don't think becoming a homemaker would take those skills away. And what could be more fulfilling than moulding and gently guiding the lives of children? Certainly not approving sales and mergers or other things in the business world. And to the person who said homemakers watch TV all day...as in any occupation, there are those who do and do not do a very good job. A homemaker who watches TV all day is definitely not doing a good job. Like anything, the job is what you make it and the ideal homemaker would be too busy in the community (PTA, MADD, etc.) or other things (home schooling, herb gardening, etc.) to daily engage in such a frivolous task as watching TV.

I work full-time from the house, so I am not a full-time homemaker. However, I do have two little spawns of Satan..I mean sons. It is nice to be able to work my schedule around their activities and not have to rely on day care. I do believe there is something to be said for having your kids at home with you. I would miss out on so many things if they had to be in day care. I guess this is more a comment on stay at home moms than homemaker. Currently I have 5 loads of laundry to put away, one in the dryer, 1 in the washer and 1 load to do, none of the beds are made (it is 12:30 in the afternoon), I just tripped over a mountain of toys larger than my sofa, my vacuum cleaners are broken, so the house if full of pine needles and remnants of things the puppy has chewed up..so yea, homemaker is a swell career if your standards are low enough (obviously mine are).

Let's see, you get to stay home all day and watch TV. Sure, you have to go shopping once a week and clean up every so often, but this job seems pretty sweet. Kidding aside, my mom was a stay at home mom and it was great. I hope that when I have kids that we are able to afford to have one of us stay home (of course, I said "one of us" to be PC, but it would have to be my wife).

Homemaker is a harder job than it seems but I would love to one day take on the challenge. I think it is really important to have someone home when there are kids in the home. Taking care of my small apartment between two people is hard enough let alone if there was a little guy/girl running around the place. I think that as hard as it would be to take of the house/kids and all the things that go with it (and I am sure it is a very under appreciated job), it would be very rewarding.
