So, I read and answered a question here about whose needs you put first, your child's or your spouses. There were a lot of really interesting points made on both sides, with a lot of good justifications for those feelings on both sides. I would like to re-ask that question, with an expansion - not only whose needs, and why, but how old are your kids?
The reason I ask this is because while obviously our kids, no matter what age, need our love and care, the nature of that care, and how "hands on, labor intensive" it is depends on the age of the child. (for example, you wouldn't tell a 6 week old to wait til Daddy was home to feed them, but you could tell a 16 yr old to wait, dinner will be in 30 minutes when Dad gets home...)
I was wondering how much people's answers were influenced by the age, (and the physical demands that go with that age) of their kids.
Please, I hope this stays civil :-)
