Anderson Cooper recently added gasoline to the fire of the debate on being a Stay-At-Home Mom versus a Working Mom. The very controversial issue has been the topic of many intense blog discussions and other cyber platforms. A new study found that stay-at-moms are the least happiest out of SAHMs (Stay-at-home moms), working moms and part-time moms. The study also indicates that SAHMs of preschool aged children are at higher rates of depression. Part-time moms are said to be the happiest of the three.

Coopers’ headline for the scheduled show about the debate ran, accidentally, under the title “Are Stay-at-Home Moms Lazy?, Plus Kathie Lee and Hoda” This statement infuriated mothers everywhere and sent the blog world into a frenzy. The blog world was outraged that Cooper would even discuss such a topic on his show.

Everyone has an opinion on what the best option is, but the truth is that every situation is unique and there is no “one stop shop” for being a mother. Every family is different and has different needs and options.

What are your thoughts? Do you think that SAHMs are more likely to be unhappy?
