Study: Stay-At-Home Moms Should Earn Over $160K

People say it’s hard to put a dollar amount on the hard work a stay-at-home parent does, but a new study figured out how to do just that. Researchers with picked out “a handful of jobs that reflect a day in the life of a mom” and added it all up using the site’s stay-at-home-parent Salary Wizard tool. Their results show a stay-at-home mom or dad should be making $162,581 for their efforts.

Some of the “hybrid roles” the site uses in their findings include bookkeeper, tailor, public school teacher, dietitian, coach, and logistics analyst. They’ve been calculating the “salary” for years now and it’s been steadily rising, up from $143,102 in 2016 and $157,705 in 2017, all based on 96 exhausting hours of work a week. explains they did the research “to honor all the moms out there who work their hardest day-in and day-out,” and add, “We would like to recognize both professional and stay-at-home moms on their unwavering dedication to their families and other responsibilities.”
