The all-purpose insurance site Insure.com creates an annual Mother's Day
Index in which researchers round up all the different tasks
handled regularly by moms, and then multiply the number of hours mothers
dedicate to each chore by the going rate per the Bureau of Labor Statistics for
the corresponding occupation—childcare worker.
And what did researchers find in 2016? Turns out, the typical
stay-at-home mom spends 40 hours (or more) a week, 52 weeks a year, taking care of her
kids. The mean hourly wage for such a job (childcare worker) is $10.75 (compared to $11.10 in 2015, a 3.2 percent decrease), which
adds up to $22,360 annually. Other mom tasks listed include serving as a
chauffeur, cook, nurse, homework helper, accountant and more. When all the
numbers are added up, the total comes to $65,522.65, according to insure.com's calculations.
