Have An Opinion?
I want to be one and i don't care what other guys say here
Too many people on here are complaining about how their standard of living would suffer with just having one income. If you have children, you should be thinking about their standard of living: having a mom who takes care of them so they don't get exposed to all the horribles that happen in day care, getting them ready and taking them to school, picking them up in the afternoons, helping them with after school activities. There are things in life far more important than having the latest and greatest video game system!
What are the horrible things that happen in daycare and are they different then the horrible things that can happen to children in school?
@musicbrain5 They can be neglected or abused by staff, bullied by other kids, and they are exposed to every disease in the world. These things happen less frequently once kids are in kindergarten; also, they can handle things a little bit better then because they are older and more communicative with their parents.
I'm sorry, that might be a stupid question but I don't have a child yet. I've worked in schools though and also one school run daycare (it is inside the school, for the children of teachers and support staff).
@musicbrain5 I don't have children but I was working in the state legislature when we dealt with regulating day care because of the abuse and neglect reports that were surfacing.
Are daycare facilities and their staff in the US not properly monitored or inspected by an overseeing third party (like the government or something)? How about staff training? Are they all trained in ECE like they should be? I'm sure there are numerous daycares that are great but I know the bad ones are the only ones that make the news.As for illnesses and bullying, children are exposed to that in any social situation. Illnesses are unavoidable and I hate this idea that modern parents have about shielding their special snowflakes from colds and such. The anti vaccine people are making things worse now as there are outbreaks of measles and diphtheria happening here. Daycares should require vaccines to be up to date before children are enrolled. That how the schools do it here.Bullying - it's terrible and I wish it didn't exist and that we all got along and that everything was rainbows and unicorns in life. I was horribly bullied from Kindergarten to grade 12. Mostly emotionally.
Okay then maybe you can answer the questions I posed in my comment above.
Not to mention the costs of daycare anyway that would be saved if there was a stay at home mom. When I was a kid I always envied the kids whose mom picked them up from school or came to school activities or took them and their friends to the mall, etc. My parents both worked, we were usually alone right after school until they got home from work and they were always too tired or didn't have time to come to every sport event, and definitely not to take me and my friends to do fun activities. So I agree, and it is from my point of view as a child.
@musicbrain5 Q. "are they different then the horrible things that can happen to children in school?"A. The same things can happen in school but "these things happen less frequently once kids are in kindergarten; also, they can handle things a little bit better then because they are older and more communicative with their parents."
Well said! I'm often judged negatively for being a stay at home mom but my youngest son was a runner, a little Houdini, who's most infamous stunt was when he woke up in the middle of the night after falling asleep with his dad, moved our end table to reach the chainlock and left our house and neghborhood, walking down a busy street and crossing another busy street before a group of teenagers ran into him while out past curfew. He ended up down at children's services but most importantly he was safe. I've heard of a lot of situations I'm not okay with in daycares and with hired sitters, often trusted simply based off experience or convenience, and even from my mom and friends that have worked in them. And because of my son having a severe speech delay etc we weren't willing to risk it. We made cuts in our spending, and changes to our way of living in order to ensure our sons safety. We struggle at times but we make it work. We don't have the latest and greatest, but we make it work.
I read that and I understand, but it doesn't really answer the question. I'll be clearer: what I wondered is if the bullying that happens in daycare is different than the bullying that happens in school. As kids get older, they get way more clever with their bullying tactics - especially girls. Babies throwing toys and slapping each other is easily stopped so I don't see how it's a problem. Being around other toddlers and babies is how humans learn to interact with each other on a more primal level. They learn from adults about what is positive behaviour and what is negative behaviour.If the staff in the daycare fail to prevent bad behaviour, or neglect or abuse the children themselves, that says a whole lot about their superiors who are obviously failing to make sure this doesn't happen. Parents also need to be responsible about choosing a daycare facility. If you don't feel 100% comfortable or sense red flags upon the initial consultation, get the F out of there and don't enroll.
I don't believe daycare in general is as bad as you make it seem. For sure there are bad ones, but I don't think those are in the majority. Since I have no desire whatsoever to be a stay at home mom and my husband has no desire to stay home, then we will likely have to find a suitable daycare facility for our future child.Kids are going to get sick. They're going to get beat up by other kids. They're not going to have Mom and Dad by their side 24/7 when they start school. Part of growing up is learning how to deal with those things, but unfortunately so many parents today try to keep their kids in a bubble. This has been going on for years - why do you think there are so many "safe zones" and "positive spaces" at universities now?
@jeanie12688 I get negatively judged by people for wanting to work. There's nothing wrong with either choice in my opinion.
@musicbrain5 Most day cares are not bad. It's not that something bad is guaranteed to happen; the problem is that if something does happen, it can be catastrophic, life altering, like sexual abuse. Good parents don't take unnecessary chances with their kids.Of course kids will get sick. That still doesn't justify exposing them to unnecessary risks. No, mom and dad won't be with them at school, but a 6 or 7 tear old child handles things much better than a 2 year old. This is not keeping your kid in a bubble. Universities have safe zones because kids today are scared of their own damned shadow and they make up stupid fears about their life is in danger because somebody wrote "Trump 2016" in chalk on the sidewalk.
So parents who send their kids to daycare or preschool are taking unnecessary risks with their children, meaning that they're not good parents because they don't stay home with the child? I think children are more likely to be sexually abused/molested by family members or family friends than anyone else, and they are manipulated by the abuser into not saying anything to their parents or other trusted adults.People can judge me all they want for wanting to work and bring in a second income so I can give my future little family the kind of life they deserve. Not saying that can't be done on a single income, but the cost of living in my country is pretty high.
We are never going to see eye to eye on this so I'm not going to try to force it.
@musicbrain5 "the kind of life they deserve"
I'm guessing you have a bone to pick with that statement.I am not trying to push my opinions on you or anyone else. I am just trying to have a discussion because I was curious about your thoughts.
@musicbrain5 I agree
@jeanie12688 shit happens in day care I have 2 kids
Completely agree with this.
Upon rereading this whole comment thread, I realized it got out of hand. I apologize for that.
Probably not, since I don't really want kids.But I'd date someone who wanted to keep the house and either work part-time or run a home-based business...
i wouldn't marry a stay at home dad :x
Stay at home mom/dad is a harder job then most jobs out there. Certainly a more important job then any job in the working sector. If I made enough, then I would love that. THe problem I had early in my marriage is that we bought a new home we really couldn't afford and my wife decided she wasn't going back to work full time. That caused me a lot of resentment. we made due but we could have been a lot more comfortable if she had worked. but once we decided to have our 2nd and 3rd child, the cost of daycare would have been more then her working anyway. Eventually she became a nurse. We decided we didn't want strangers raising our kids so I worked midnights/afternoons and she worked days. I did it for 12 years. It was a sacrifice since it was basically career suicide for me but it was for my family.of course once the kids started getting older and it was time for me to have my career, she threw me and our family out the window to be with one of the guys she was fucking at the end of our marriage. so now it is a struggle to make ends meet. sorry... got off topic lolI was out of work for 3 years, and it was very rewarding being able to spend that time with my 3 boys. But when she was home with them, I knew it was the best thing for them. So I was ok with it eventually...
A woman whose goal is to be a stay at home mom? No, probably not. Those kind of women tend to be the ones that believe being a stay at home mom is the hardest job in the world.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoJrMaFlxOkBut I won't say no if when we have a kid, she wants to stay at home with them until they go to school (I'd be willing to do that too, it's a discussion we need to have when we're about to have kids). But after that, get back to work.I live alone, go to school, and do all the chores myself, and I still have free time.
It's a real job. I would prefer it if she got a job after college before having the kids and got one when they were older but the latter isn't always possible. Honestly once they are all school aged being a teacher is a pretty good stay-at-home Mon job because the hours reflect those of their kids at school. But depending on the kids extra curricular a it might not be worth it or possible. If Dad is clearing six figures and the kids have extra curricular a than it really isn't worth Mom working 50 hours a week for 30k.
If there is the perspective of building a family then yes, well i'd prefer to work 1st and enjoy the relationship before and then when there are children you need to take responsibility and take care of them and when i say take care it's like a real mother not just put some walmart food in the microwave when i see how kids are raised nowadays it makes me cringe i admire my mum a lot for what she gave to me... making money yeah okay but i prefer to give a good education and share real values and all i learned, be here for them etc and it's also a way to take care of your man, cook for him take care of him and that doesn't mean you can do nothing else i think you can still have hobbies and so on... anyways this is just how i feel and as a daughter too i see how others are treated by their parents and so on... like i am not saying parents who both work cannot raise children but they can sometimes miss something etc... this is just how i feel thoConclusion : housewifes are awesome lol
I don't want to be a stay at home mom and wouldn't want to be with a guy who wants to be a stay at home dad. Not that I don't think men aren't capable of being great stay at home parents, or that I don't want to be home with my kids all day. It's because that lifestyle just isn't financially feasible in today's world, especially where I live. Managing on one income here isn't impossible, but it is tight unless you make a really decent six figure salary (like $150K or more).I like having my own job, my own money, and reaching my own career goals. I have always been taught by my parents that if I want money, I should make an effort to get it myself and not from anyone else. I don't want to be dependent on my husband to provide me with an allowance or something. What would happen if we broke up and now all of a sudden I have no money at my disposal and I have to find a job after 5 years, maybe even 10 years? That's not exactly something you want to have on your resume.
Would be a big no. Two income is almost 3 times the wealth you can get on a single I come family. I would like to retire in comfort before 50 so I don't want a domestic servant wanna-be as my wife. I would rather share the house work, clean out the house, do groceries and clean the toilets if she would get out of the house and help with the income.You need about 2.5-5 mil in savings to retire in comfort. My plans involves me saving for myself at nearly 20 years. I can't make 10mil in 20 years to support 2 people with only one income.
I don't plan on ever having children, but I don't see anything wrong with being a stay-at-home parent, I actually think that it's really, really great for kids, and in an ideal world everyone would be financially capable of having one of the parents be home with the children. It's good when your main priority can be parenting, instead of being at a job from the early morning to early evening, with only enough time left in the day to eat, have a brief conversation, then pass out and repeat the whole thing 4 more days.I don't really get how people can compare being a stay-at-home parent to having a job though. I guess the people who say that have never actually held a job before. How can you think that doing some laundry, running some errands, and cooking a couple times a day is equivalent to a job?
I prefer a traditional relationship. I don't mind working for her and the family. Kids need their mother there all the time. They can do without us though. If you ask me it's the most natural thing in the world. You even see it in the animal kingdom. The only reason people fight it is the crap that the media tells you may the elite are at war with the family model and everybody who's against the traditional family is supporting them. You sow the seeds of you own destruction. You country was built on the back of the traditional family. This craziness is destroying it
With the conditional consignment of a limited-prenup and 50/50 split allocation of child custody should things go wrong, yes.Otherwise, FUCK NO.Stay-at-home mothers, in the case of a divorce, make out like fucking bandits.
How much experience do you have with those situations?
@OlderAndWiser One too many. lol.
I've been a stay at home mom for a few years, and I'm finally going back to working. I think I've had enough time to raise my children, so time to make money! I always hear some women complain that they'd love to be a stay at home mom to have more time with their children, but I believe once the children are in school, moms can find at least a part time job and be home once their children are off of school. If the child (ren) is/are younger than 4 years old, it's understandable to want to stay at home. But after that, there's no excuse.
I would love to be a stay-at-home-mom someday if we can afford it. I currently work as a full-time nanny and I probably see more of the baby than his parents do (I'm with him from 7:30-5:30 every weekday, and he goes to bed at 7pm). I've seen a few of his firsts before his parents did, though I didn't tell them because that'd upset them.I just don't like the idea of paying a stranger to raise my kids for me. I'd rather be with them myself if at all possible.
You're a stranger being paid to take care of someones baby! How Ironic!!!you need the money =)
I would, but ideally she should have a career with some experience behind it before getting pregnant and leaving the workforce. Just in case anything happens, say the husband gets sick, laid off, etc. Marriage is about teamwork, and kids need supervision. Child care costs a fortune, and I would trust the mother of my children over some strange raising them any day of the week. There is nothing wrong with a woman who wants to stay at home and care for the family, if anything that shows she isn't selfish and is willing to work and sacrifice on behalf of the family. Children should always come first.
No get off your ass. and get a job being a stay at home mom is a part time job kids are in school from 8am, til 2-3 o'clock so what is she doing for those 8 hours also. even when she picks them up she only has to deal with them for three hours til the father gets home.Prenup sounds reasonable. No stay at home sounds studied stay home mom is like having a part time. job. about 28 hours a week
What if I want to say at home and just play video games and have to work? She can work and pay all the bills so I can have the life I want! Why is ok for a woman to want to stay home and not work and have the life she wants and it is ok because she is raising kids in the process. I don't understand why having kids makes it ok to stay at home. If she gets her life, why I can't have mine?
Have at it!
Stay at home moms HAVE a job. They are taking care of a household and family all day long. Raising kids is a full time job. You don't have to choose to support a stay at home mom if you don't want to, but being a stay at home mom is NOT the equivalent of staying home to play video games. If you think it is, you obviously have no idea what it's like to run a home or raise young children.
Its a valid point, but i would argue someone stayimg at home and pursuing their own hobbies without devoting a massive majority of their time to the kids and house is not a "stay at home parent"
@Jack_S No, of course someone who stays home and spends most of their time pursuing their own hobbies is not a stay at home parent. But this question specifically asks about stay at home moms, who presumably are actually being moms.
Evolution bro. Women get pregnant and have kids in Their DNA to be nurturers like men are supposed to be gatherer and hunters. And if you think women sit around all day, you must have never done any cleaning in your house , or cooking have you ever raises or been around kids? Probably not, those who have never experienced things generally have the most to say,
@samhradh_leannan we are on the same page. The point is in regards the this opinion above, not the question itself
Well, you wouldn't be home playing video games, you would be raising kids. You can be a stay at home dad too. So go for it. I feel like that life sounds kind of boring, especially when they start going to school, so I don't know if it is really such an "ideal life". Now if a someone just wanted to be a trophy wife and shop and go out to lunch with her friends then you might have a point.
There are many women who only care about having babies and raising a family. That is the life they want. They want to stay at home and not have a job, not work or make money in order to have it. What I am saying is, I want it to be fair that I also get the life I want too. I don't want to work either. I also want to stay home. I am not interested in raising kids. I want to play video games! Why is it ok to stay home to raise kids, but not ok to stay home to play video games? Why does she get the life she wants, but I can't have the life I want? How is this fair?
Well, then the solution is gor you to find a woman willing to work and support your gaming habits while you stay home
Fair enough. But good luck finding a partner who is willing to work all day and support you while you sit at home playing games. Raising kids benefits both you and your partner, but gaming only benefits you.
I mean I like a girl I'm dating to be ambitious in whatever job or field she chooses, and works hard in something. But down the road I definitely see a traditional kind of setting for myself, where I'm the primary money maker and she's at home with the kids. Assuming I convince someone to marry me anyways lmao
Not unless there's a good reason Of we have kids or she physically can't work that's fine.. I don't mind at all But if she just wants to stay home and be lazy.. Nope. Or stay home to invite someone over while I'm out working for her.. NooppeThat's over with
If I were to do this, I'd expect more to do than making Pinterest crafts and thinking up overly elaborate children's birthday parties like a lot of "modern" helicopter SAHMs I know. Traditionally, women who stayed home kept gardens, killed chickens, canned and preserved, sewed clothes, etc. If I was going traditional route, I think picking up some of the other parts makes most sense. Esoecially growing and preserving food and herbs.
I said no simply because I like a girl with professional passions, preferably academic. While I support women who are passionate about keeping a home and I realize it is a super tough task, it's just not what I want. I want to share in those responsabilites and be with my kids some too, and I want my wife to live a healthy life outside the house too, but that is just me.
Provided if I were male, sure! Nothing to do with societal standards either. My friend is married to a stay-at-home dad and man, does he dedicate his time to the kids and the house. It's nice! I don't see anything wrong with the label but I understand the stigmas too.
I don't know if I could relate to her. That's pretty important for a relationship.I do see the pros and cons of both sides though, I can see how it might be a good thing especially if we had kids but being with someone who understands your perspective is a big issue.
i am not a guy but i some might agree and others not!!! but personally i think a woman can stay at home (or even work at home/from home) until her kid goes to school... then go back to work once her kid is like 2 or something
why not continue working from home even after the kids go to school?personally, kids or not, working at home (for myself) is the ideal for me.
@thewanderingme that sounds like a good idea!.. more time to spend with kids
If I love her, then yes.Personally I am quite ambitious as far as my career goes and I believe it more likely I will get along with a woman with similar goals. Simply put I do not believe that I would be likely to fall for a girl who wants to be a stay-at-home mom. If I do, I won't mind it. Assuming my paycheck is enough to afford a comfortable living of course.
Absolutely! I would be thrilled to know that I found a woman who felt no shame in her desire to have kids, or raise kids, and did not allow the modern feminist notion that choosing to be a mother over choosing a career was a betrayal of all women to effect her, and gave them the finger.
yeah, but i'd like her to pick up a hobby and stuff. my parents were always working and it sucked that i would have to stay at after school until like 6pm or later while my friends' parents picked them up right after school :/
A housewife forever? Nah. In today's world, that shit wouldn't fly with me. Like is this what women really want out of their lives? can't imagine how boring their lives would be.
Yes, but ONLY if she is willing to sign a pre-nup. I don't want to be screwed over in case of a divorce.
You would prefer for her to be screwed over?
@OlderAndWiser HIGH FIVE TO YOU... She isn't working to tc of the house and kids and making no money but HE wants HER to sign a prenup. F*ck up!
@OlderAndWiser Nope! I don't want anyone to get screwed over, and that's the reason I need a pre-nup. I know very well I won't initiate a divorce anyway, unless there was a compelling reason (such as her cheating on me). So chances of her being screwed os almost nil.
@kat_gran What if she cheats on me, we need to divorce, and she still takes my stuff? Anyway, I am not forcing her at gunpoint to sign a prenup AND marry me. She might as well NOT agree to any of this. So why are you making me out to be the bad guy here?
There's nothing wrong with what he's saying. If a woman decides she wants to stay at home its fine. But it's her choice I didn't tell her to do it. Therefore if we divorce you don't get my money it's not my fault she never chose to earn. If we both worked I still wouldn't want her money. That is his line of thinking.
@Dydyrhr Exactly! I wouldn't want her money, irrespective of whether she worked or not. But it's just that IF she does not work AND there is a divorce, I end up losing a LOT.
If she stays at home to take care of the children, she is not in the workforce, not advancing n her career, but she is putting in plenty of hours. When she re-enters the workforce, she is at a disadvantage because she is starting over and will possibly never catch up to where she could have gotten if her career had not been interrupted. You benefit from having your wife stay at home with the children. However, everything that I have said is based on having children/ Without children, there is no reason for her to stay at home.
@OlderAndWiser You do make a valid point, but what if.. just if... she intends to marry me and have kids, yet stay at home with the SOLE intention of divorcing me and screwing me over? Of course, not saying all women are like that, but that possibility can't be ruled out either.
I think that's possible but very unlikely unless you are already well established in your career.
@OlderAndWiser Yes, you are right. I an just starting afresh with my career, due to botching up the fairly successful career I already had. But I see your point.
@OlderAndWiser Thank you. You could have not said it better. Unless you are already a wealthy man and she gives you kids to then divorce you that's a different story to her marrying you and then getting half. It's about building a life together and putting in time to build a family with you. I understand what you are saying @Asker, but I see it more from OlderandWiser's point of view. I guess that just comes from maturity and understanding life better :) having more experience. :) But you are right, no one forces anyone to a prenup.
@OlderAndWiser thanks that's the main fear of stay at home Mon's. He only way I would ever give up my career and stay at home would be if I knew I wasn't going to be hung out to dry by doing so. So prenup? Sure. One lining out the ifs and whens. Not all prenups a are bad or a postnup for that matter. I had an ex who referred to his friend's wife having to quit her job because he got transferred across the country as his friend losing 6 figures a year and then another 30k because she got pregnant. She leave up her livelihood for his job and the friend was botching about her online shopping. Her shopping wasn't out of control by any means the friend was pissed about the loss of income. Don't ask me to move across the country leaving everything I know and have your kid only to bitch about me not being an engineer anymore.
@sjoes006 I just read in Psychology that when there is money disparities, couples are more likely to cheat. Google it.
@sjoes006kids are in school from 8am, til 2-3 o'clock so what is she doing for those 8 hours also. even when she picks them up she only has to deal with them for three hours til the father gets home.Prenup sounds reasonable. No stay at home sounds studied stay home mom is like having a part time. job. about 28 hours a week
I don't think so. Perhaps only when she's pregnant and later the kid needs to be taken care of in the first two or so years. But forever a housewife? No.
That's what I want, personally. I think it's the best of both worlds. I would never want to just be a housewife, but I want to be home with my children when they're young.
Stay at home dad if roles reversed? No, personally not the way I would like to live my life.
well im a straight girl, but if i was a guy, i'd prefer her to work because unless im somehow going to become a millionaire, my average job won't pay all the bills.
I want to be a stay at home mom while my kids are young. But before I have kids, and once they are old enough to start school, I will definitely be working.
You better be rich! I couldn't live my life that way but if someone man or woman is happy being a stay at home parent and they can afford to then good for them! I'd be bored as hell myself though!
A woman who wanted to be a woman and fulfill the natural female role would be my preferred choice of mate.
i'd rather pursue my career until i get pregnant and have babies then i'd leave my job temporarily and come back when my kids are older
I guess I could, considering I am a software developer. Many people cannot afford that privilege though.
Hey, how's it going? I want to ask a off-topic question. I'm aspiring to be a professional software developer. Right now, I work help desk and my job gives me projects to do here and there, but not the pay.How do I break into that business? Thanks.
@GreatnessRevamped uh. If you want to get hired, I personally joined a smaller firm through an acquaintance. I had a bachelor's in computer science (actually I was still at Univ so it was a student job thing at the time) and I already had *some * experience although not much. If you don't really have protection like that, what you need is a github account, and some project there that shows your work. It is also great if you have at least one application in the Google play store. (talking about android dev at the moment) Otherwise, apply to places, look through some general algorithmic methodology and data structures to know some basics. They love those in standardized tests.
Is comp sci a good degree to do? Im really torn at the moment between Mathematics and comp sci. I dont know anyone whos done it and i was wondering what its really like
@Reflexy comp Sci gets you more jobs I think
But what is the actual course itself like?
@Reflexy depends on where you study. It also has math, but not as much math as pure math.
Well either way Ill be applying to Warick which is a university in the uk.
No, because I don't want kids, and I enjoy cooking and cleaning myself.
No I prefer people with ambitions and goals in life similar to mine.
If she wants and I'm confident in my ability to bring home enough money to support us.
You know I realized that being a stay at home mom isn't as easy as it seems.Especially if all the kids are the same age or close to same age. (6 months baby, 2 year old toddler, and 8 year old)
I'll give her $10 a week for allowance. If she wants more she best be good with dat mouf and use it often!
Nope, I don't plan to have kids so she'll need to do something more than being a stay-at-home mom to my dogs...
No. I don't particularly want kids and I need a woman to be able to stimulate my mind. It's hard for me to imagine a housewife being able to do that and the ones I've met have not done anything to expand my imagination on the matter.
Ain't nobody got time for that.How fucking boring of a life could you ask for? Not learning anything new every day, not challenging yourself.Gross.
So people who work are always learning something new everyday and challenging themselves. Do you know how many mundane, uninteresting and meaningless jobs are out there?
Yeah they are. I'm not saying it's monumental, the things they're learning, but you always learn and experience something new when you're out in society and not spending the majority of your life in a house, making sure it's tidy, and only venturing out to go to the grocery store for 30 minutes.
My mom is a stay-at-home mom but she volunteers at the local pet shelter, soup kitchen and my school. My dad makes enough money to pay for our college, we still go on vacations and he still has extra money to save for their retirement. Some people don't need to work.
@sparkly-crystal I could never do it, personally. I need to work and feel like I'm bettering myself and being productive.Not to mention I don't want to rely on someone else's dime.
it's good that you find having a job empowering. But my parents are still very co-dependent like every couple should be.
and at the end of the day, they both rely on eachother.
I rather not have kids. I like women that show ambition. Work, volunteer or study something.
i am not going marry a woman, i am into boys...but i want to be sit at home mom when i am married and then turn my hobbies in job (photography and art)
Of course but I hope the man will not misbehave while in that situation.
Date sure but marry no.I believe everyone must earn their own living.
I'm actually in the middle of setting up a business. A stay at home business that will travel if needed and if I had children in there for them too.Does that count?
that's what I'd like to do as well.
IF she has the option to absofruitly not. If there's a condition where she would have to be then by all means of course.
Yes, I would. I think it's the best. My children will be spending time with my wife a lot and that's great. This means that my kids are not gonna turn out stupid or like most of American kids which is horrible. This also means that my kids are more likely to be successful, good in life and better prents in the future.
Yeah its best thing , the dad will work for them and the mom will take care of their children
I wanted my wife to work so we could have a BMW. She wanted to stay home with the kids and she did. I think it was for the best that she did.
I want to work please. I want to earn by my own. It doesn't matter whether he's rich or no, I still wanna work.
@ConsultantIsBack I love being independent :P
I wouldn't mind being a stay at home mom. Especially in the early years.
I don't usually get on well with hyper-traditional people.
No!. I think that both parents needs to work today to be able to provide.
1000% yes !!!Because that's the way my childhood was; after school I came home to a hot mean and a loving mother I actually wouldn't want to have it any other way for my future children.I'm very lucky I wasn't one of the key children
if i can earn enough money maintain the home then i don't mind if she want stay in home and caring for kids :-)
