  • I have been both and both have their pros and cons. Working gives you adult interaction (and of course money). But staying home gives you that daily primary influence on your child.

  • I would prefer a little bit of both. I have been a SAHM for 13 years. I am ready to start earning some money to contribute toward the household expenses.
