Which statements fit you best? Or if none, make your own (since so many of us don't like to be pigeon holed).

I believe that a mother should stay at home with the children at almost all costs.

I believe that a father should stay at home with the children at almost all costs.

I believe that a parent should stay at home with the children at almost all costs.

I believe that the standard is that a mother stay at home with the children until x age. I understand that not everyone can do this, and there are frequently many adequate othercare alternatives.

I believe that the standard is that a father stay at home with the children until x age. I understand that not everyone can do this, and there are frequently many adequate othercare alternatives.

I believe that the standard is that a parent stay at home with the children until x age. I understand that not everyone can do this, and there are frequently many adequate othercare alternatives.

I believe there is no overall ideal/standard and that each family needs to figure out which options work best for their particular circumstances.

I believe that the standard is for both parents to work; however, I understand that there are certain special circumstances where having a sahp is beneficial (eg. caring for a special needs child, spouse with erratic work hours).

I believe it is ideal for both parents to contribute financially to the family for almost every situation.

"Doesn't the clique usually resort to find blame in others who they view are different?"

Interesting theory. If that were true, I think I'd be a Msahm and not a regular old sahm.

I want chips now. I think I am going to have to stop while I am out and buy some.
