I was always told as I was growing up that the best one parent can do is half the job. Each parent has a significant role.
Why thank you. :-)
As to the article...Mrs. WBill is a stay-at-home Mom (she has a small part-time job to get out of the house and make some spending money). The crap that she gets for staying home from her friends and co-workers is endless.
These would be her mostly Unmarried, Mostly Childless, All Feminist Friends and Co-Workers...and those that have kids all dump them in a daycare for 10-12 hours a day. I attribute their attitudes to jealousy, or guilt.
I'd love to be a Stay-at-Home Dad. Unfortunately, my earning potential is higher than my wife's...it's easier to get by on what I make, rather than on a teacher's salary. Were the shoe on the other foot, I'd swap places in a heartbeat.
