If you're entrusting your precious child to a minimum wage stranger every day, then your child is NOT your first priority.<quoted text>My daughter is and will ALWAYS be my priority, the reason I choose to balance work and home. The point I'm making is that working parents take parenting just as serious as stay at home parents. I say parents because I know men who are stay at home parents (while the mother works) and are damn good at it. Don't say that mothers who work need to take being a mother more seriously. There are stay at home moms that care more for that next bag or car than the well-being of her child. Morals and values determine how serious people take parenting.
Did you read the original post? A baby was horribly burned and hurt by someone who was supposed to take "care" of her.
The safest place for a child is with loving parents. Parents should plan better before they bring children into this world.
Maybe living in a smaller home and driving an older car are the sacrifices parents should make in order for their child to grow up in a safe, nurturing environment.
Children need their parents more than a couple stressed-out hours each evening. It's called priorities!
