How supportive are your friends, family, in laws, partner in you being a SAHM?

pretty supportive I get the occasional comments from my sisters about me not working (they both work...and pretty much HAVE to work to make ends meet in their households) whereas if I work it would just be extra money (minus the whole gov't shut down thing right now)....wouldn't hurt right now though if I did work LOL

I figure I have enough on my plate with the kids, school activities, other activities, and all the animals, and dh's disability...to worry about working too...ugh...

Very supportive. But pretty much all my family and close friends have been SAHM so they know how important it is.

They were all supportive. My younger sis is one and my mom was one til I was in high school(she ran an in home daycare til my senior year when she and dad split and she got work outside the house).

Dan was supportive, it was a mutual decision and he was glad I'd still be able to do so once he was gone too, even if not forever.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

Most people are supportive, a lot of people around here are SAHMs. This is the country after all.

The funny thing is that I get the most flack from friends. Comments like "don't you want to do more with you life", "I never imagined you would be a SAHM" and "why would you waste your education ?" Are common

I do get comments about my "wasted" education too because shortly before I have a masters degree that I was working on just prior to having my youngest. I finished it up last year, but don't plan on going back to work until he is in school full-time in a few years. With my oldest I wasn't able to be a SAHM, but right now I can be and my hubby and I both think its important. Plus, with having 3 older kids in activities its nice that I can always be here do drive and see games, etc.
