When being a stay-at-home mom, people think your lazy or you just sit around all day. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Let’s look at an average mom duties list. Let’s look at all the things a mom does and how much that job is worth.
Being a mom, includes homemaking. If you aren’t sure what that exactly means, check out my article on the homemaker meaning.
Meal Planner & Chef
Most moms need to figure out what the family is going to eat and they need to prepare that food. A lot of us do the cleaning up afterwards as well. The average Facility Cook/Menu Planner salary in the United States is $37,590.
When your children stay home all day long, it isn’t even housekeeping anymore. At that point, I think you can just call it “being a maid.” The base salary for Housekeeper ranges from $24,631 to $30,672 with the average base salary of $27,151.
Oh, the never ending task of laundry. As of Jan 24, 2022, the average annual pay for a Laundry Attendant in the United States is $22,563 a year.
Moms need to make sure the family’s bill are being paid and that the money is in the account to pay the bills. Accountants made a median salary of $73,560 in 2020.
Personally, I don’t do too much of this, but the average Chauffeur salary in the United States is $35,925 as of January 27, 2022.
Moms figure out the kids schedules, make sure the dentist appointments are made, and plan out the holidays. The national average salary for an Activity Director is $40,212 per year in United States.

Gotta cloth the children! The average salary for a Personal Shopper is $56,056 per year in United States.

Our kids these days get every moment photographed. The average annual pay for a Photographer Job in the US is $43114 a year.
According to the BLS, the average annual wage for an elementary school teacher, excluding special education, is $63,930. So, if you are a homeschool mom, I’m going to say you deserve more than that salary.
Most moms do all the “secretary type work” of the household. The national average salary for an Administrative Secretary is $39,502 per year in United States.
We bear the children. Can’t put a price on that.
I saved the best for last. Out of all the mom duties list, this is the most important and the most rewarding. Moms are world changers.
