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.
