Or do you believe that your job as a parent is to prepare your child for "the real world" via love, education, and the like?
I've seen too many responses that say parents are lazy if they aren't with their child every waking moment. That seems asinine to me. Children learn through many different avenues, one of which is being exposed to different people and situations. Why am I a lazy parent if I send my child to day care and allow trained educators to teach her? Why am I lazy if I allow my mom to take her overnight? I just don't get how my daughter would benefit from being with me *all the time*.

I like MrsLeftlane's comment.................."I'm there for them 24/7"
My kid's and I would have killed each other if we had been together all day every day........LOL! Both kids went to daycare before they were even two months old and are confident, independent people who know their mother loves them very much. Maybe they would have been this way regardless of whether or not I worked, but being a good mother doesn't mean you have to be "joined at the hip" to your children.
