Looking into the happiness factor of the survey, 56% of women said that they are very or extremely happy with what they do. And, what may come to a surprise to some – those with four or more kids are the happiest of them all!
The study also concluded that modern stay-at-home-moms fell into one of four categories: workers, volunteers, newbies, or caretakers. 34% surveyed are workers; women who list part-time work as a daily responsibility and who contribute to their household income. 24% are said to be volunteers; women who spend time helping at school or with other kid-related activities (45% believe they make working moms’ lives easier). 19% are considered newbies; women who have at least one child under two and see staying at home as only temporary (59% plan to go back to work). Lastly, 12% are caretakers; women who have at least one child with special needs, and are more likely to be very or extremely stressed (39% vs. 30% overall).
