what I have seen, the "debate" is as to whether it is right or wrong?

It's what works for you and your family. I believe we all need to slow down and smell

the roses...I was a SAHM, and I would not do anything differently now!

I am thankful that I did what I did!

My only child lived till he was 29, he passed this past January.

I had so much quality time with him, we had a very special relationship.

It was hard work and I wouldn't trade one single second of it for all of the money

in the world.

"to debate is to disagree"

what's good for you, isn't necessarily for me."

It would be far more important to teach our children,

tolerance of our differences.

Children learn what they see,

not what you tell them to see.

Ask yourself what are you teaching buy example?

that is a parent...

Nice post. I am so sorry about the loss of your son. It sounds as if you built many wonderful memories to sustain you. I agree with you about teaching our children to respect differences. That is a very key message. And teaching by example is very important. Thank you for your insight. Take care.
