Describe your philosophy

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.

I don't agree, it's limited how could it not be one?

I would say a clique is a narrow, exclusive group with common interests or views.

Since I am not forming a narrow group of ppl with common views, then no, I am not forming a clique.

>>Yes, as you said in a previous post...you are narrowing it down.<<

I didn't say I was narrowing it down to ppl who were like minded. I agreed with the post before that on ignoring cliques, (by narrowing down the members I will reply to.)

So again, no, I am not forming a narrow group of members with common views, I am not forming a clique.

Yes, exactly...by narrowing down the replies, based not on the content of the message but on the person, why wouldn't that be creating a cliques as well?

It's not by the content, as in what views they might have. As well as the fact, I will not be replying to (way too many ppl) concerning the same topic, which only leads to more confusion. We are talking about this on the other thread though.

Again, if I say anymore, someone will hit the RAV button.

Yes, that is what I said, it's by the person and not the content, thus it seems to fit the description.
