Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違いやすいボキャブラリー


  • A full-time mom is a mother whose main job is taking care of her family and doing housework.

    A stay-at-home dad is a man who stays home to take care of his children and do housework while his wife works. We also use the expressions stay-at-home mom and stay-at-home parent.

    Be Careful! The expressions full-time mom or stay-at-home mom are often used instead of “housewife”.
  • full-time mom とは、家族の世話をしたり、家事をしたりするのを主な役割とする母親、つまり、専業主婦のことです。

    stay-at-home dad は、妻が働いている間、家にいて、子どもの世話をしたり、家事をしたりする男性のことです。同じような意味で、stay-at-home momstay-at-home parent という表現もあります。

    注意:最近では、housewife(主婦)の代わりに full-time momstay-at-home mom を使うことが多くなっています。


  1. I love being a full-time mom. I can't think of a more important, satisfying job.
  2. a: Are you a housewife?
    b: Well, I prefer to call myself a full-time mom.
  3. I'm a stay-at-home dad and a freelance writer. My wife teaches full-time at the university.
  4. Among the over 5 million stay-at-home parents in the United States, nearly 100,000 are men.
