    Re: Stay at home dads.

    In a perfect world every mom would stay home and raise the kids but in the real world both parents often have to work. Other times though the women chooses to work for "self fulfillment" reasons. If you cant feel good about yourself raising your kids, if you need a career to feel important, don't have kids. Then theres women who need stuff. They want a bigger house and a fancier car and are willing to let others raise their kids to have more and better things. These women shouldn't have kids either.

    I have been doing this since the day my son was born. There is no percentages to give here each day comes with it own set of circumstances and I have a schedule as well. My earnings and professional effectiveness have not suffered nor has my son been deprived of my attention, in fact I volunteer at his school on a regular basis and am a very involved and proactive father.

    In a perfect world people could live their lives without being criticized for it by people who obsess over how they run their family.

    I am here to express my opinion on issues, I guess you are here to slam anyone that has a different opinion than you, to each his own I guess.

    I'm deeply sorry I don't take kindly to people criticizing others on things they know nothing about.

    I often hear people say that it is perfectly legitimate for the woman to stay at home raising the kids while the man goes off to work. While at the same time I hear people say that it is wrong for the man to stay at home raising the kids while the woman works.

    What do you think? Is it acceptable for the man to stay at home raising the kids while the woman works? Or is the man just a lazy bum (a phrase that I hear often when refering to stay at home dads) that should get off his butt and get a job?
    In this reality, people must survive however their talents and skills allow them to.

    If such survival demands that a man stays at home raising a child while the mother goes out and works, then that is what is demanded by the law of survival.

    So no - nothing wrong at all with stay-at-home dads.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Re: Stay at home dads.

    I was never a stay at home Dad, but with my first son I was the more involved parent as far as raising him was concerned. I was the one who took him places, arranged his play dates, got him off to school and bonded with him in general.

    I sure see nothing wrong with any dad staying at home full time to raise kids. The only consideration should be the welfare of the children, since once you have them it is their needs that take precedence over yours.

    I don't know what you do for a living (nor do I care); but I would tell you that your experience is not necessarily the norm from what I have seen. There is only so much time in the day. The company I work for at times requires me to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; sometimes at locations that are not within communiting distance of my home. That is not conductive to being the primary care-giver for a child as well as working. Not everyone has the capability of working from home.

    I honestly try not to criticize, I just express my opinion and my opinion offends people sometimes I guess, apology accepted.

    Sounds good, but I hope they are being smart with their money and putting at least 20% in savings each time she gets paid. We've all heard the stories of people having "cushy" jobs only to loose them. It's hard getting to that standard of living only to go back!
