"and after time went on, I stayed working because I could see for myself that this was the best decision. "


Sadly, this is oftent he case but women make this decision based on emotion instead of logic and end up doing the non best thing.

My son will go to school when he's of age just like every other child....I just believe it's best to stay home with them when they're little...for as long as you can.


As for the poll...I believe I did put both an option about preferring to work and an other option.


Ya know...I'm really tired of you guys nit picking every little thing I say on here. When I first posted on this board I was just giving advice and my personal feelings to a woman who asked for them.

Is there a board out there where WOHD's get asked that question?

This woman should be working if she can not afford to give her child the basics needed. She is sacrificing more than she thinks as these poor children should not be raised this way.


Does she take care of herself before the kids? Are they really that poor that she could not afford a backpack for school?

What is your basis for that belief?
