I've been attacked so many times on CA that I have closed my profile and dedicated myself as Anon when I speak about the frustrations of my job. I really appreciate my job (almost to the point of desperation) when economic times has hit the business hard. It's almost like the business has evolved to a whole new beast. When I ask questions about the issues of job cutting and book cooking, I get a lot of personal insults. Why must this be, when the questions are sincere?

I'm a teacher (ha ha my name.....) anyway, I like what I do, and it gives us the life we have. It gives us great health insurance. I'm not going to ever justify working to provide for my family. I love them. I think SAHMs are the same, just at a different side of the spectrum. My kids are happy, healthy, enjoy their daycare life and friends........life is pretty darn good for us!! I wouldn't worry about the bashers, they don't know your situation in the real world.

Some people arent happy with their lives so they are on a MISSIOn to put others down as well! IGNORE the bashers and just know that there are MORE nice people here in Cafemom then bashers. I work outside the home on a part time basis and I work from home on a full time basis. I have had some nasty comments from people myself but deep down, I know that I am happy and who care what the sorry losers think!

Wow.... I didn't realize it was like that for working moms. I'm sorry that you've been treated badly. I can understand what you mean though. Some moms just can't fathom that any other way (than their own) may be OK. Or, if your way differs from their way, then they feel threatened that "their way" may not be the best and only way to do things.
The only way to deal with their own feelings of inadequacy is to attack others. Its sad really...

I think possibly some SAHMs who have made it their mission in life to do the best thing for their children by staying home and raising them wonder why some people have children then put them in daycare all day long to be raised by a stranger. Maybe they feel sad for all the children forced to go into these institutions full of other kids where they have to learn to survive the real world way before they are emotionally ready for it. Spending their whole day in an environment where nothing is their own. Kids need the security & comfort of being surrounded by things and people that are personal to them, napping in their own bed, playing with their own toys, being cared for by their own parent. It's really very sad the lonelinessthese daycare children must feel on a daily basis being separated from their home and their moms...
