Women are judged for so much it's ridiculous. Decide to stay at home? Be prepared to be called lazy and have people criticize them. Or if you are a working mom, then be prepared for people to say that you are selfish and don't love your kids as much because other people are raising them.
It's really a no-win. Someone is always going to have something negative to say. One thing I learned from having friends who are mom's is that people constantly judge you for everything. If your kid has a stain on their shirt, you're a bad mom bc you are not cleaning their clothes (even if they just made the mess!). People say other's are a bad mom if their child is having a tantrum. Tantrums happen, kids have a hard time explaining and expressing their emotions at a young age.
I think there is a lot of pressure put on women in general. And it just multiplies after having kids. Sure there is pressure for moms to stay at home. Because they can watch their kids grow and develop. But unfortunately in my country it's hard to live on just one income. Most couples, both people have to work just to survive.2
