What does SAHP stand for?

Stay-at-home parent

A parent who stays at home and cares for their child each day may refer to themself as an SAHP, or "stay-at-home parent." These parents may also refer to themselves as SAHMs (stay-at-home moms) or SAHDs (stay-at-home dads).

These days, SAHPs are also commonly WAH parents, who work a remote job or run their own business *in addition* to caring for their child. If the thought of that sounds exhausting to you, well, you're not alone ...
