i dont think mom should be paid to stay at home with your kids because its your own kid why be paid to take care of your own child
Ragnar

Pro

Morally they should be paid signifigantly, I mean it is the world's hardest job [1].

Next up your argument is ripe with holes, to start...

"i dont think mom should be paid to stay at home with your kids"
To start, my kids does not imply her kids. That is called a nanny, many of who are mothers spending time away from their own kids (apparently to take care of mine). This is a job they will need to be paid for, unless they have been kidnapped, which is a serious crime.

Pro

Manuela12000 (Con), has chosen not to respond, leaving my argument lines uncontested.

Moms should be paid for their time and effort, even if such is not practical for the average family to do so in cash. In fact if a mom is not at least paid in things other than money (emotions for example, which Hallmark tells us are priceless), she should simply leave.

To reiterate my previous points, I shall quote Salary.com's writer "Aaron Gouveia"
  • "Stay-at-home moms work an average of 94 hours per week for a total estimated 'mom salary' of $113,586 a year" [2].
Unless you are opposed to the ethics of people being paid, ethically moms should be paid.

Well when the topic is " should stay at home moms be paid " one commonly think money. Emotion is a "Perk" Not an official form of payment. If you know where i can pay with emotions please tell me because I would like to take my Girl friend there to buy me some new things. Money make the world go round bud.

@Madebate
Given how short this debate was, I'm surprised you missed the key point "In fact if a mom is not at least paid in things other than money (emotions for example, which Hallmark tells us are priceless), she should simply leave."

Are you actually opposed to a stay at home mother being paid things other than money?

As to your point "Like any job moms its a moms choice to have that job no one is forcing her to do it." Consider how self defeating your line of reasoning is, within the same paragraph you mentioned "What about single moms?" Who are most clearly forced into it by child abandonment laws.

ALSO With the "cons" last argument video did he think that maybe they have kids of there own to take care of? So by having kids parents should get paid? They get tax reductions most times. Plus who would pay them because I know i'm not paying more taxes. This argument is absurd. What about single moms? if any think i think they should get paid. Like any job moms its a moms choice to have that job no one is forcing her to do it.

TBH I do not think that they should be paid because my mom raised me and she had a job at the same time. If they are not making enough money they can apply for something like food stamps but other then that its up to you to provide for your family no mater what the condition is.
