I think anyone who stays at home - is a hero.
I am not employed, but I do not consider myself "stay at home mom" because I am working on my writing.
Being at home to me is being imprisoned. Even if a dad stays at home BECAUSE his main responsibility is CHILDREN - it is a nightmare, all this home/house work, endless, unappreciated, maddening...
Maybe some people are, but it all depends on a person, a situation, .... something... and then
we are not intrinsically lazy - we are not motivated and then we are simply depressed.
I do believe in everyone being talented but trapped in the Asylum of Everyday Life.
I would not think of people who stay at home as lazy.
Laziness is a phenomenon that deserves the second and really GOOD LOOK.
Why? If you believe someone is lazy, ask him/her and yourself - Why?
What is the root? What is the reason?
Ask "a lazy person" - "Are you happy?"
