    Woah.... you do know you're playing with fire saying something like that on a forum where people are passionate about parenting don't you?

    And for what it's worth... that's BS. Speaking from a family with five little boys and a Dad who's been at home with them a lot of that time....

    And besides, who are you to comment on someone else's situation? He wasn't asking for career advice, he was stating his job! He is a SAHD and likes it! It's not your place to say that his choice is not worthwhile. Is that how you view the mother of your child too? That what she does is not worthwhile? Okay... well you've only just a baby... you'll figure it out. You don't have the experience yet.

    I have to agree with you OJ. I know a friend of mine & her husband decided that he would be a Stay at home Dad cause he bonded better with the children & babies and she was more inclined to academic work towards a high paying career It worked very well for them.

    Wow, thanks for the support there. I was a bit shocked to see the post as well. I guess people do shoot their mouth off a bit online, but wow...

    Anyhow back to reality for the rest of us. I love what I do and there isnt a thing that Cartter could say to change that.

    Golly! How the heck did you manage to get an internet connection to post that insult from where you are way back in the 1950's??? Get back in your time machine Cartter, your views are not welcome here in the 21st century!!!

    Ah right, so does this apply to all the SAHM's out there too? If it only applies to SAHD's, can you explain how so?

    This made me laugh out loud actually .... It has to be a joke! If not this guy / girl / whatever needs to realise that this is 2012!! Hello!! Men and women work and men and women stay at home with kids. It's not 1940! My husband would do a better job than me as he is more patient but he earns 3x what I would so he works. Really carrter or what ever your name is .... Pull your braces up , put your port down , switch off your wireless and moustache trimmers, and propel yourself into the current year . Ha ha . Anyway this is dads chat so I'll go. Hope you find some decent blokes to chat with and keep up the good work that all us stay at home parents do ! Ha ha ! Snort!
