Right well I haven't read through the whole page because well 15 pages would take AGES and I have housework to do
OP I don't think being a stay at home mother is setting a bad example for our sons or daughters. I am a SAHM of two beautiful children and I have sacrificed ALOT to stay at home and raise my children. I made the choice to give up working and all the perks to raise my children at home with me. I believe that my kids need me in these early years of development. I believe my children will be more secure and confident because they have had me at home for these critical developmental years. I believe that sending a child to daycare everyday from a young age is not benficial for them (please notice I said 'I believe'... this is my belief I don't care what anyone else does with their kids). iI could have chosen to go back to work and earn money and work my way up the ladder etc etc then what... oh I could buy my kids more toys, or a big house, or a new car or whatever but you know what I can't buy with that money... these precious years I get to spend with them at home... Like I said I have sacrificed alot to be at home.
I don't plan on being a full time SAHM forever, once my kids start school I plan on finishing my studies and starting work through school hours so I can be home for them when they get home from school etc, atleast until the later years of high school anyway...
I guess at the end of the day I think you were very lucky to have he homelife you had. I would love to give my kids that kind of stability.
