People say parenting is one of the most rewarding experiences in our lifetime. Yet, let’s not forget that it requires a lot of responsibilities, worries, and effort.
So, to be successful in their mission to raise healthy and happy children, parents need time and patience. Taking care of kids means giving them all your time and focus, and this can be similar to a job without working hours as you will be needed 24/7.
Although we might think that everyone understands the difficulties of raising a child, some people still have an opinion that stay-at-home parents do nothing. Bored Panda already covered a story about a stay-at-home mom who shared her efforts of raising her child and how unappreciated she feels.
A TikTok user who is a mom to two little kids shared what she does all-day
It was stressed that people don’t consider this as a job as it doesn’t bring you monetary value. Although parents are in charge of raising a good, helpful and honest member of society, some people say that what these parents (mostly mothers) do is just sit at home and not do any significant thing. We can say that what others think is not important, but what happens when someone close to you thinks like that?
She decided to make this video after she was told by her boyfriend that while he is working, she doesn’t do anything all day.
In the clip, she runs all around the house all the time, taking care of her children and keeping the house clean.
TikTok user @sierra_not_ciara shared her daily routine of being a stay-at-home-mother. At the start of this video, she explained that her boyfriend claims that she does nothing all day while he works. As a result, she decided to make a video that would show her daily job as a mother of two. The video became viral, reaching 10.7M views. In the clip, she showed how she does her chores, takes care of the children and the house. She recorded herself giving her attention to two little kids at all times, cleaning, washing, and mopping when she is free for a moment.
At the end of the clip, she explains that when she is finally finished with her work, she texts her boyfriend to ask what he wants for dinner, as the evening has already come, but this time she takes some time for herself and fixes herself a drink. Ultimately, she finishes her video by expressing her frustration towards men who don’t give their women the credit they deserve for everything they do.
The comments of the video were disabled, but later on, she commented on this matter by releasing two more video clips with her boyfriend. Seemingly, her boyfriend received some hateful messages about the whole thing. So Sierra told people to stop doing that as she made the video after the two of them fought, so this was the way she reacted to express her feelings of being hurt. In the clip, the two of them explained the situation and showed that they both are on good terms.
It seems that most of the time she has to multitask
The experience we have so far about stay-at-home moms and dads proves that people need to talk more about the matter, solve the problems, and find out each other’s needs. Discussion is the only thing that helps people understand that they are not alone, get the help and support they require, and break the stereotypes.
