It's the very question that may have started the mommy wars.
Who works more: moms who stay home or moms who have jobs outside the home?
Kirsten Dunst thinks she has the answer.
The "Bring It On" star told People it's "so much easier" to head back to set than to stay at home.
"It’s so much easier to go back to work than it is to be a stay at home mom,” Dunst, who is in the upcoming Showtime series, "On Becoming a God In Central Florida," reportedly said. "I was like, 'bye’ to my mother-in-law [who watches her son while she’s at work]! I was like, [phew!]” she said.
Neither job is easy and each has its pluses and minuses.
According to Pew Research, about 60% of Americans think a parent should stay at home. However, the majority of mothers in the U.S. do work outside the home. The same study states that "mothers who are not working for pay spend more time, on average, on child care and housework than do working mothers, but they also have more time for leisure and sleep."
A 2019 survey from Salary.com suggested stay-at-home moms should make $162,000 per year for their work. No study on how much more working mothers should make for the domestic duties they still have to accomplish exists.
