Whether or not to include "stay-at-home mom" on your resume depends on your individual situation and the specific job you are applying for.

If you were a stay-at-home mom for a period of time and have gaps in your work history, you may choose to include it on your resume to explain the gap and demonstrate your time management, organizational, and communication skills that are valuable in the workforce.

However, if you have other recent work experience or if the job you are applying for is not related to your parenting skills, it may not be necessary to include "stay-at-home mom" on your resume.

Ultimately, you should tailor your resume to the specific job you are applying for and focus on highlighting your relevant skills and experience.

Your resume is an extension of yourself.
