  • if they would get an amazing upbringing I would want what is best for them but I am selfish and would miss my children greatly and all of the things they would experience those few years away and always want to know if i could have done better..

    I would keep them, even rotten, disrespectful, hormonal, crazy and dorky.. they are my kids and I love them no matter what!

  • They are my children and we chose to have 3 for a reason. We agreed on me being a sahm for a reason. So we can be the best parents we can be and raise our children to be the be best they can be. I would keep them.......children need love, hugs, nurturing. Material things aren't that important.

  • I wouldn't send my kids away for anything no matter how they act, I know you think about it sometimes but I would never do it.

  • I didn't choose to become a parent so that someone else could deal with the "crap!" Being a parent means having to put up with all kinds of things. BUT, some day when the children grow up and start their own families you will be able to relish in THEM having to put up with crap from their own children!! :o)

  • If I could afford boarding school, I would send my oldest definately!, my other two would get too homesick though.
