I’m going to vent:
I strongly believe that kids who get out in the world and experience the community of other children do better than kids who are isolated at home with only their mothers and siblings. I feel that all kids need to be socialized, just like dogs, or they’ll never be able to catch up once they get to grade school. I also am sick and tired of people who post crap saying that mothers who work don’t do a good job. Working moms do a damn good job are closer to their kids than anyone who writes that crap could ever know, and the children of working mothers are proud of their moms. I don’t know a single working mom who doesn’t think of her kids 24/7, put them first and spend every free moment with those kids. It is about quality with your kids and bringing them up to be strong and happy adults (in my opinion.)
Every family is different and every choice is different – but make sure your choices are educated choices and not just a jacked up gut reaction misguided myths. And stop trying to crap on working moms and the hard choices we have to make.
We’re not going to stop working so deal with it or shut the F up.
