This seems like a good time to start with a clean slate. Please keep the debate guidelines in mind - debate the topic and not the person.



Thank you for understanding

A reason - no. Financial means - yes.

How about this: You don't need a reason but I'll bet everyone has a reason. It may not be a reason many people identify with, like or understand, others may declare your reason is a good reason or a bad reason, but there's always a reason.

Everybody who lives in my house needs a really good reason not to have a job out of the home. There are alot of good reasons but you need one in my house.



I teach my kids that every house has different rules and when you have your own house you can have your own rules.

I would say yes, there needs to be a reason to stay home.
