Bridgette observed that people are mostly judgmental when it comes to stay-at-home parents, mainly because it has no monetary value. ‘There’s this stigma around it, you know we just sit at home all day and put our kids in front of the TV and play around with our smartphones, and that it’s not really hard work. I don’t think people understand the loneliness and isolation that comes with just interacting with a child for the majority of times. It’s super draining at times.’ Bridgette said.

Finding a way to win over her feelings at a low-point during the day, Bridgette revealed she tells herself it’s only a temporary phase. ‘This is a phase and it won’t be here forever. I know there will come a moment when all this will be gone and I miss this as well.’ Bridgette added.

Speaking to Bored Panda, the stay-at-home mom continued: ‘If there’s one important thing I have learned from this phase, it’s that I am not alone in feeling this way. I have come to witness some people stay silent about these feelings in fear of what others would think. I am hoping to launch a conversation about the stigma that surrounds stay-at-home parents and perhaps might allow others who do feel the same to talk about it.’

Internet Users Reacted Positively To Bridgette’s Sincere Post
