My Aunt is doing a persuasive speech on the benefits of having a parent at home with the children. I was wondering what you Moms thought was one the biggest benefits being at home with your children?

  • you gain a trustful relationship.
    you get to see first hand as they develop. You are able to witness their first steps or the first time they crawl.
    you don't have to worry about them being safe in a daycare with strangers.
    You always know where your child is.
