I had a curiousity.... Given the oppurtunity to stay home how many truly would or have?
Honestly I like both. But not one or the other.
for me there are huge downfalls to both. I have two kids and I have to work/or something to support them. and as I thought of my answer to this question I realized I'm both mom/dad for the most part. Dad is involved regularly-however he doesn't take care of school, therapy, housing, meals, projects, learning, displine regularly, field trips, activities, and the list goes on. But as some one who assumes the role of both with a kind of outside static I realized not just from me but people who know me that I'm a genuinly accepting person. I just accept what needs to be done, I accept responsibility, I accept opinions(and am teaching to their fathers dismay my girls to have an opinion.) I accept other peoples life styles even if they are in my own home. I do have opinions of these people, but I accept who they are as a person. And I think it draws from my experience, at home and work.
At home allot means I'm alone alot, not socially inclined, too much time on my hands, eventual depressed.
However being at work more than not, means no time with my kids, no real conditioning time to help mold them, everything is rushed and they spend a good too much portion of thier time with another adult other than me, who eventually i end up contending with over what is right for my children, but also acceptable to the environement of a sitter....
Strange, there are good things to both worlds which is why both would be better.
