"I don't want anyone else to raise my kids"
I've never really understood that statement. When your kids go to school they are in school more than they are at home. So, what's the difference? I think it's awesome if a mom can stay home with a child at least for the first year but to imply that if you don't someone else is raising your children is absurd. Try to think outside the box a little.

Research shows that children that attend daycare centers or early educational programs actually do better academically and socially. The most influential age is actually 5-8 years old and most children are in a school setting at that time. Also, keeping your child at home doesn't help their immune systems. When your child enters the school system they will be constantly sick.

I was never a ft sahm- I worked night hours (11pm-7am) part time which required limited daycare. I also worked every other weekend. Both my husband and I worked and had sole childcare responsibilities. We called it each participating 100%. Our kids are happy, healthy, successful college students. I wouldn't change a thing. Our kids have great relationships and respect for each of their parents. They were not raised in daycare, and I liked contributing to our our family income! To each her own-
