I don't think people should come down on moms who stay at home, but some SAHMs love to say they stay at home so "other people won't be raising my kids."
I work full time and raise my son. I teach him morals and values and he loves me in a way he'll never love anyone else. Saying the daycare is rasing him is just plain out of line.
How can one side bitch about being criticized when both seem to do it equally?

I'm curious as to why someone who defends her own choice feels the need to attack mine. It doesn't bother me. I'm just wondering how they would justify it.
Just looking for insight.

6:04 either you're lying or feeling guilty. I have no doubt I'm raising my son.

6:04 if I felt that way I'd go on welfare or live in my car before I'd send him to day care. That's just not how I feel.

OP here- I'm really not taking it personally. And no really really the day care is not raising my child. True he spends alot of time there, but that's not the same as being raised. I'm a teacher myself and I'm not raising the kids I teach even though I spend so much time with them, it's not the same thing.
I just think both have pros and cons and to criticize moms who choose differently is a sign of insecurity in your own choice. I really thought I might get some insight onto how someone feels it's OK to attack others, yet be offended when their own choice is criticized.
