Do they really want to stay home to take care of their children or do they just do it because they're lazy?
I go out and work to take care of my children... I still get to spend time with them and they actually have nice things!

Your just jealous cause you can't afford to stay home with your child. You have nice things because you choose nice things over spending time with your children. I choose to not have nice things that I don't need in order to stay home with my child. Every minute I get to spend with him in worth everything to me and cannot be replaced. I worked every day until I had mine and chose not to leave him or put him in daycare. Yeah I gave up a lot, but it's so worth it to me. There's nothing lazy about it honey. Taking care of a child and giving him all your attention is 10 times more tiring than working.

I believe it is better if one parent can stay at home and raise the kids. But in today's world that is nearly impossible. Whichever parent can bring in the most money to make ends meet should be the one to work and the other stay at home to raise the kids.
However if you have to accept government help then you are not doing right by your kids. You should get off your lazy butt and take care of your kids and not expect all the other parents to take care of them.
I know that being a stay at home mom isn't an easy job.. Actually it may be one of the hardest jobs in the world if you ask me. But I don't think it is fair to ask everyone else, including the working mom, to raise your child.

being a stay at home mom is just as hard as working, don't hate on moms who are fortunate enough to stay home, i am a stay at home mom and have been for three years and believe me i would rather work, but im fortunate enough to have a hubby who takes care of his family and my kids don't want for anything.. I commend you on workin and taking care of your kids, my mother was a single parent and she done it on her own, but don't call people lazy unless you know they are because you have kids and you should that being a parent is not easy...

I am a stay at home Mom and my husband works to provide for me and my kids. There is definitely nothing wrong with that. Being a stay at home Mom is no easy job but its well worth getting to spend most of your time with your kids. I want to work, its not like I don't want to help provide for my family but daycare is so expensive now you would have to make pretty good money to make anything after taking out daycare money then gas money to drive back and forth to work. I have 4 kids, and daycare is around $100 per week, so that would be $400 per week just for daycare! Ive even looked around to check on assistance to help pay for daycare so I can work but my husbands income is over the limit. So its better for me to actually stay at home until all my kids are going to school for the day. I'm sure there are alot of Moms in a similar situation as this. I do give working Moms a high five because I use to work after I had my first child and working all day, then going home to clean, cook, & take care of the kids after all that is really far from easy.

I think it's a personal choice. I think stay at mom's work very hard. I was raised by a stay at home mom and she never stopped. I, myself, am a working mom. Personally, I have seen too many woman put up wiht all kinds of crap becasue they relied on their man to take care of them. I vowed a long time ago, that I would never be in that position. I finished college and started my career before I even thought about getting married. Now, I have a good job, good husband and a wonderful child. I also have the peace of mind knowing that if something did happen to my husband or my marriage, I would be able to support myself and my child.

yeah.. good point. Ladies, what if something happens to your man? Will you be able to support yourself? No, because you are too dependent on your man..

Not true in my case. I could go out today, and get a job if I wanted to. I am very educated, and I have experience for alot of jobs. People need to stop judging others, and mind there own business. Really, don't you have a life, or job?

Don't you worry your concerned little heart honey. US, stay at home workers can manage just like all the rest do. Its No Biggie. If my man were to be in an accident or dies, there are money there (put aside) to help get us or I, where we/I need to be. Why would you be so concerned?? Those who complain are the ones who envy. Jealous Much?? lol

You can't say that you are raising your children because someone else is doing it for you. When children are young, time with mommy and bonding is way more important than going out and working just to have a social life. Some mothers work just to get away from the responsibilities that come along with being a mom. They soon realize, staying at home and being a mother is so much harder than going out and working. All the material things dont mean NOTHING to children. Bonding with your children is most important. Get a CLUE!

I worked for years taking care of the elderly but am now & have been for several years a stay-at-home mom. My job at home is way harder than it was caring for the elderly. 8-10 hrs & I was done & home....now I'm on duty 24-7. 2am sick child, chief cook & bottle washer, maid, Dr. mom, taxi driver, handy-man, chaperone, advisor, counselor, teacher, yep we stay-at-home moms have a job that covers multiple professions...all w/o leaving the house.

I work from 8pm to 5am and come home and sleep til whatever time they get up which is about 10 but today one of them wake up earlier and I spend the whole day with them, so you need to get a clue! I just hate seeing on the burden being put on the man, and the children still living in a crappy home and never getting the things they want. My children get everything they want, because I care less about my sleep and more about them!

What makes you think just because a parent stays home that their children are not getting what they want???? ARE YOU THAT STUPID and DELUSIONAL??!! You must be talking about a drugged out environment or something because you make no sense. You talk non-sense! You best be getting the clue because its not a burden for a man to get out and work for his family AT ALL. He would be working regardless if he had one or not. Lets say if a couple is "struggling with debt" ... well you can't place blame on the mother. It would be fathers fault as well considering most couples make decisions together. Why would a mother get out and work a pissy paid job that would barely pay her for gas, eats, and daycare cost???? Her pay wouldn't phase the bills. Not everyone is blessed to have been able to finish college when they should. I think you are a jealous envious women wishing she could stay home and spend more time with her kids and you know that you can't afford to. BOO HOO ON YOU! Go cry a river! By staying at home, a parent has the chance to see all of their child's firsts, and act as a positive influence during the their young precious years. How many people do you know who get to the end of their life and wish they had spent more time working and less time with their families? You can't pin a dollar sign on the value of spending time with your children!!! YOUR children will grow up to think more of the person who raised them instead of their own mother who thought a pair of jeans for them were more important than being there with them emotionally and physically. Yea you really care don't ya??

If you are a single parent, I understand but if your bf or husband makes good money, being the mother you are, you should be there for your babies at home. All the money and material things in the world will not replace all of the things you miss. You will soon realize one day The emotional well being of your family is more far more important than having to make a greedy ole dollar. Wait and see! Having a parent stay home and the other work a job, gives a family the best of both worlds.

Are you too ignorant to read???? I spend the WHOLE day with my children, I raise my children and work too! My husband actually does make good money, he makes about 12.50 an hour, but I also chose to work, because I grew up in a home were only one parent worked and I never got anything I wanted and I could never understand why my mom wouldn't get a job, even when we started going to school and got older. I am not jealous of any stay at home mom, I feel sorry for their children, unless their husband brings home about 100k a year or something.

I sure hope your children don't grow up like you, because you sound really immature... BOO HOO go cry a river? I mean how old are you? 18?

Making the man just work really does put a lot of burden on him, I would have loved to have been able to spend more time with my daddy, but he was always too busy working or stressing out about work, and my kids will never have to worry about that, because their mommy works too.

Really, quit being selfish and actually have some care for you husband and your children.

I am done here. I am going to go outside and play with my children since they are all awake!
You can stay on topix all day while the tv baby sits your children!

Oh my ole clueless one! I too came from a one parent working home and I never done without EVER! My daddy had a job that made a hellava lot more than just 12.50 hr. though. I see why you have to work because 12.50 an hr job that your husband works is a crappy paying job. If he was the good daddy and husband, he would want to go find a better paying job so that his kids could spend time bonding having a closer relationship with their own mother. There are no other person that is going to take care of your child (the way you want them to) other than their own mother. If you work full time I hate to break it to ya but you are not spending a whole day with your kid unless its your day off from work! Why lie?? I sure hope you make more than your husband because there is no way you are getting everything your child needs or wants.

Parenting is a full-time job. If both parents work full-time jobs, they will have less time to spend with their children. DUH! Most full-time employees don't work 40 hours a week. More than 85% of men and 65% of women work more than 40 hours. Needless to say, in most professional jobs, you will spend more than 40 hours a week working. Add in at least an hourly commute every day and you are pushing at least 50 hours a week.

work isn't the only thing that will keep you from spending time with your child. Taking care of the house and running errands drains the time spent with children, but that can be minimized if one parent stays at home.

Really, you need to take your own advice and quit being selfish and GREEDY actually have a heart for your children and be there for them. Anybody knows staying at home has significant value on its own. And honey, if I were you, if my husband couldn't work a better job than that, I would have to sit him down and give him a talking to. lol

FYI, my children are grown. I am an old granny now. ;)

I can't help to speak up. I am a single mother, I work while my kids are at school, I spend the time they are home with them till they go to bed, then I do full time college classes.. So please do tell, how working a full time job, m-f durin the hours of school, and doing college classes from 9pm-12 am, actually cuts into the lives of my kids? I mean, seriously? Multi-tasking is a must for any mother, so why can't work/school be balanced around raising a child with the same support system of a stay at home mom? What do stay at home moms do when all the kids are at school? Why wouldn't you want to better yourself either with school or work or both?

You mean to tell me you do all of that but yet you still can't see how it cuts in with raising your kids? yeah right! lol I understand by a single parent things need to be done. I am not dissing the ones that have no choice to work. MORE POWER TO YA! Its those who work even tho they can stay home but don't. Being the full time caretaker of their kids obviously isn't on the agenda. I have done the college thing myself but didn't have to work. I barely had time to look up more less be the mother I was suppose to be and that was just going to school full time. I then put everything on hold until I had more time to myself once they got into school. Just like my husband said, all women are different. Some believe that working is more important while others believe being the full time care taker of their children is more important. My husband wants me to stay home and take care of him and our kids. I guess I'm just one of the fortunate ones that get to do so. We live comfortable without any complications. I could really care less if ppl think stay at home moms are lazy. They're not lazy at all if duties are done right. Anybody with a brain knows that. Those who think it is are just jealous that some women have husbands that love us and care enough to want to take care of us at home. Some parents know what REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE other than trying to make a dirty ole dollar to keep up with the joneses!

It doesn't cut in with raising my kids, that's the point. They get on the bus at 7, get off the bus @ 4, my schedule is 7-3, hmmm, yeah, no intereference there, they come home @ 4, we have homework time, theirs not mine, we do snack, playtime, dinner bath and in bed by 9, mind you both my kids are still in middleschool, After they are in bed, I do the housework, which isn't bad, then do my studies.. And oh, yeah, I have the weekends free with them, so, exactly how does that cut into raising my kids? That I work, or that I know when they hit highschool, they will need more money, they need college, So I am wrong for wanting a better education to show them they need it? Seriously, working moms have their priorities straighter than anyone I know.
