Brutally Honest Post About Stay-At-Home Moms Was Liked Over 500,000 Times, Deserved Even More

Whatever your job may be, there’s a high chance that you will find it stressful at some points. There’s always a deadline looming, a video call to make, or a project to present, and it can feel like your world may come crumbling down at any moment.
Unfortunately, amidst all the stress of our day-to-day work, we can forget that other people’s jobs can be equally as stressful but in different ways. We often believe that the stress level that is personally felt can not be matched by others – when in reality, many are stressed for reasons unknown to you.
Being a stay-at-home parent is assumed to be a simple job, which typically involves taking care of the children and ensuring that there is dinner for the whole family. This assumption is damaging, so Ryshall Castleberry from Florida, took it upon herself to show the world that stay-at-home parents deserve more credit than they’re given.
People may ask: “But, what do you do all day?” to a stay-at-home parent, assuming that there isn’t much to do. In reality, the responsibilities are far more extensive.
Florida-based tattoo artist Ryshall Castleberry was frustrated at the stigma attached to these parents, so created an imaginary conversation between a psychologist and a husband who complains that his wife “does not work”. You can see the conversation unfold for yourself below.

Castleberry’s post dismantles the idea that stay-at-home parents do very little, and as the husband elaborates on how little work his wife does, it is increasingly obvious that his spouse does a lot more than he previously thought.
Castleberry’s post may be lengthy, but it highlights how much a full-time parent does during the day. The post evidently resonated with people, as over 600,000 liked the post on Facebook, and has been shared by over 300,000 others online.
Some took offence to the post, with mother Debbie Saradin McKinney commenting: “[…] there’s those of us who do all that AND work.” Either way, raising a child can be one of the most difficult jobs you will ever have, and I have the utmost respect for parents that give their child the best upbringing they can.
