Salary Estimate for Stay-at-Home Moms

Here's an interesting article from Reuters. According to a recent study, stay-at-home moms deserve to be paid $134,121 per year for their work.

This is based on "the earning power of the 10 jobs respondents said most closely comprise a mother's role -- housekeeper, day-care teacher, cook, computer operator, laundry machine operator, janitor, facilities manager, van driver, chief executive and psychologist."

If you're a stay-at-home mom (or dad), and you want to calculate how much you'd make if you factored in what you could've been paid, how many children you have, where you live, etc., check out the calculator at
