In response, Devon Corneal for HuffPost came up with a list of questions or comments NOT TO SAY to  a working mom. There’s a subtle hostility or judgment that comes through in some of these statements that makes you wish that everyone would, every so often, think before they speak.

1. Can’t you afford to stay home?

2. I’d give anything to get away from my kids for an entire day.
3. I’d miss my child too much to be away from him all day.
4. The problem with this country today is that not enough moms are home raising their children.
5. Why did you have kids only to let someone else raise them?
6. I don’t know how you do it. It must be so hard.
7. You must be so organized to be able to balance everything.
8. There’s always time to work later, these early years are so precious.
9. You look exhausted.
10. At least you treasure every minute you have with your son.
11. Don’t you worry you’re missing out?
