In my previous (6 yr)
You are absolutely right. These days not many people have that option, both parents have to work. But when a family can afford for one partner to stay at home, they seemed to be judged. I was told one time I am a gold digger because I am not working. I do not think that is fair. It's not like I never worked in my life, I have a university degree, I have done plently of volunteering, owned my own business, raised my own brother (homeschooled him as well), I had a job where I worked min 10 hour days but for some people all of that goes out the door now that I decided not to have a full time job.
Well said. Besides, many women have careers that they value and that need to be maintained to remain viable.
Again, people shouldn't judge you and you should do whatever you want to do.
I have friends that would never be SAHM, it is simply not something that they want. They love their jobs. The crazy thing is they are constantly being asked when they are going to have children or why they don't want to be SAHM. So I guess it seems no matter what we decide, we are being judged by someone. I just think that each family needs to decide what is best for them and everyone else needs to bug out.
Ahh, but see you didn't read and you cut and pasted what you liked out of that.
I can't think of a bigger waste of my time away from my child than to only work for "living costs".

Thank you for your best wishes.
Again, there you go off with your resentment against what I said rather than going by what I said.
As tragic as your child's illness is, it's more than a little unreasonable of you to expect me to live my life (and go back in time to raise my child) as if my child were equally ill.
