i had someone tell me that and i also saw it in another question today. a lady on here told me that if we didnt "need" the money then i was being selfish in taking myself away from my kids to work a few nights a week. i do not think that is in anyway selfish of me or anyone else if thats their choice. i only work 2/3 nights a week from 5 until 10:30. my kids dont go to daycare, dh takes care of them or they go to grandmas. its only for a few hours. also whats wrong with daycare? in the other question it was a rant about "letting someone eles raise your kids", thats not the case at all, there are just some things that we as parents cant teach our kids, and thats how to behave and learn without us. i think that kids need the social interactions while they are young. my son has never spent more than a night or 2 away from me at a time with grandma, so he HATES strangers, even other kids. hes a mamas boy! DD was in dc at 8 weeks!!

It is different for every one... for some people, they do make very selfish choices, and for others the choices they make are really in the best interest of their kids. Its really up to you to decide what is best for your family.

It's bad for your kids and bad for your family. You are gone for the whole evening including dinner time. Research shows it's important for kids of all ages to have family dinners. You are expecting your husband to care for and entertain the childre or the children to entertain themselves. This may mean TV or they do whatever they want while your husband watches TV or plays video games. You don't say how old you children are. If they are under 3 they need to be cared for by one person.
It could cost you your marriage. A child that hates strangers has issues and doesn't need his mom being gone 3 nights a week. You don't put kids in day care or with a sitter so they can learn things they can't learn from you.
