COMMENTS: I would just like to know what exactly is wrong with staying at
home with your children?
Maybe I have missed something on this site, but
the majority of comments I see on here, including memebers, is that they
are "too strong" of a woman to be confined to Suburbia life raising kids.
Does it make you people less strong to bring up children in this world?
My view is that a woman should be proud of her choices no matter what
path she decides to leave. If you want to be successful in your own
business, then more power to you. If you love working a 9-5 everyday,
then great. If you have made the choice to leave your career to stay at
home with your children, there is nothing wrong with that either. It is
all about peronal choices. Not all stay at home moms are there because
their domineering husband insists upon it.
I had a great career. I worked my way through college and to the top. It
was wonderful to feel the rush of accomplishment and success. I have been
there and I have done that. When I decided to stay home, it was my
choice. It was not because I was afraid to try. It was because I wanted
to be the one to raise my child, not an institutionalized daycare. Yes, I
do have the luxury of not being a single mother. I have a wonderful
husband that I love.
He supports any decision that is important to me. If
he did not, then we would not have a lasting relationship. I know there
are single parents that must send their children into someone elses care
and their are women that prefer to work. To each her own. However, a
large percentage of stay at home mothers make their own choice in life to
stay home and raise their children. It boggles me why they are all
stereotyped into SUV driving, cookie making, PTA raffle selling soccer
moms that wish they had a better life.
A womans choice is a womans choice. I have yet to see even one stay at
home mom make it on the members list. I am sure there have been comments
by these women that blow away some of the streotypical "I'm childfree,
worked my way up the ladder and proud" comments that were not so good at
It's wonderful to be childfree if that is your choice! It also
wonderful to have and raise children. This website is supposed to be
about strong women who have their own thought and opinions, or so I
It seems to me however, this site is a little biased. Maybe I am
only stay at home mom that has written here not trying to cram my
lifestlye down every other womans throat.
This lifestyle is not for all.
However, that doesn't make me weak.
I am still the same strong individual
I have always been, staying at home or not.
