It is not hard at all to be a mother. It's only hard if you have no common sense and a little patience. I was laid off for a year and i was a stay at home dad. So i do know how hard it is. The hardest part was getting them to eat.

The only unpaid job in the world that's 24/7 with no retirement age, and is no longer peculiar to women. Society relies on dedicated home mothers or fathers. Partially, funny, but not that accurate.

Society doesn't rely on dedicated home mothers or fathers, children do. Oh, and the job is not unpaid: my daughter pays me every day - sometimes just with a look. You're right, it's not accurate: it's the best job in the world.

Any woman can be a mother, not any woman could be a nuclear physicist... surely that makes nuclear science more difficult than being a mother?... very few women get ill and die just because they're mothers, but factory workers the world over get pulled into machines and lose limbs. Those women (and men) currently fighting wars, never knowing who will shoot at them next or where the next bomb will strike... come on he's right, being a mother is long, unpaid yes, but difficult? Granted give birth to a child with special needs or who contracts a terminal illness at an early age and yes I'll agree that's very hard, but generally being a mother? It's not that difficult... anyone who says it is doesn't have enough tragedy in their lives to compare.

Thank god you're sane. No one said being a parent is easy, but all this sentimental bull crap is making me ill. Especially this... "the job is not unpaid: my daughter pays me every day" I am amazed anyone could type this without cringing.

Sorry Surells, I don't know who you're talking to, but I'm surprised a mother could reduce her role in society. I suppose I should not expect anything else from a woman, as we often shoot ourselves in the foot. If the roles were reversed and men were the 'mothers', I am certain their role in society would be hyped up beyond belief.

Yes, any woman can be a mother, but all women are not good mothers, who invest their time and energies into their children. By the way, before being a nuclear physicist, they were children being brought up by hopefully a good mother, who encouraged them. Who would they have been without a good mother; much of the mother's job is nurturing her children, it's not in the child's nature to bring themselves up. It annoys me so much that people make the role of good mothers naught, when they are the very backbone of society. Lastly, I am female, who has seen for herself what a good mother is and nothing can change my mind on the matter.

The difficulty is in defining 'difficult'. The job of any parent is to nurture a person to be kind, productive and social, and to provide the necessities of life for those children. Most women on the planet do that alone, including finding and keeping food and shelter. While it does not always include danger, in most nations it does. Tribal and international conflict is a way of life for many people, and natural and economic disaster are never far behind. While mothering does not require a degree, doing it well requires no small measure of intelligence and creativity. It is unpaid, and most frequently under-supported. Be careful not to believe that what happens in the homes of the middle class of Europe is normative.
