Stay-At-Home Mom Goes Viral With 2.1M Likes For Showing What She Does All Day After BF Blames Her For Doing Nothing

It is said that parenting is one of the most rewarding experiences in a person’s life. But it also comes with a lot of responsibilities, fears, and new challenges. And to overcome it all, parents need time and patience. To take care of kids means that you need to give them all your time and focus, and this might be equal to a job without working hours as they will need you 24/7.

Even though we might think that everyone understands how hard it is to raise a kid, some people in society hold the thought that stay-at-home parents do nothing. Bored Panda already covered a story about a stay-at-home mom who shared her struggles of raising her kid and how unappreciated she feels.

More Info: TikTok

A TikTok user who is a mom to two little kids shared what she does all day

It was emphasized that people don’t see this as a job because it doesn’t bring you monetary value. Even though parents are responsible for raising a good, helpful and honest member of society, some say that what these parents (usually mothers) do is just sit at home and do nothing important. We can all agree that other opinions don’t matter, but what to do if someone from your personal surroundings feels this way?

She decided to make this video after her boyfriend told her that she doesn’t do anything all day while he works

In the video, she constantly runs around the house taking care of her kids and making sure that the house is clean

TikTok user @sierra_not_ciara shared her day of being a stay-at-home-mom. At the beginning of her video, she stated that her boyfriend claims that she does nothing all day while he works. So, she decided to make a video that would show what a mother of two does all day. The video became viral with 10.7M views. In her video, she showed how she does her chores, takes care of the kids and the house. She filmed herself constantly giving her attention to two little ones, cleaning, washing, and mopping when she has a spare minute.

At the end of her video, she tells that once she is done with everything, she texts her boyfriend to ask what he wants for dinner, as it is evening already, but this time she decided to have some time for herself and fix herself a drink. Finally, she ended her video by expressing her frustration towards men who don’t appreciate their women for everything that they do.

The comments of the video were turned off, but later on, the TikToker commented on this situation by releasing two more videos with her boyfriend. Apparently, the man received some hateful messages about the situation. So Sierra asked people to stop it as she made the video after a fight that they had, so this was the way she decided to express her feelings of being hurt. In the video, they cleared up the situation and showed that they both are on good terms.

It seems that most of the time she has to multitask

What is known so far about stay-at-home moms and dads shows that people need to talk more about these things, discuss the problems, and find out each other’s needs. Only through discussion are people able to understand that they are not alone, get the help and support they need, and break certain stereotypes.

She needs a better boyfriend. A mother is a full time job that never ends. If he can't appreciate or respect that, she needs to find someone who does.

Sounds like a great idea on the surface but it's hard enough to find a decent partner, let alone one willing to deal with someone else's biological kids and the additional drama if that old person still has contact.

Firstly, that's a horrible thing to say by her boyfriend. Child care is a 24/7 job and she also has all the house chores to do also. He should be more supportive rather than just demean what she is doing. Gosh, it isn't rocket science.

i definitely believe that man never had to do chores as a kid or teen cause mom used to do all of them and dad didn't help ... and a man who replaced mom by wife. just a kind reminder !!! chores are a human's job. not a woman's job. if one doesn't work seem pretty legit that he/she does more but the other one still has to participate. oh and btw dude. you're a father too ... take care of your baby during the we !!! being a man doesn't mean you can't change diapers or give a bath.

My ex husband was the same, especially when our daughter was at the crawling stage. I had to watch her constantly, because that's my job, to keep her safe and still allow her to explore and develop. I never realised just how abusive he was until we split up. He was always saying things to hurt me, controlled all the finances etc. I would have loved to have him stay home for a day to look after our daughter but to be honest I didn't trust him to do a good enough job!
