I am wondering what everyones honest opinion is. My dh doesn't understand why I have no desire to go to school. We got married a year after I graduated high school and I never went to college. We have 3 children and my youngest went to school this year so I have spent the last 4-5 months being a stay at home mom without them home. He says he thought I would want to go to school and "do something with my life by now." The way I look at it is I am already doing something with my life. I am completely fulfilled being a SAHM. I don't feel like there is anything missing. I have no desire to do anything else. once upon a time that is what women did. They spent their lives taking care of their families.Now I have offered to get a job while the kids are in school but any job making less than $10 an hour is a waste of time in his opinion (since he makes enough to support us) and the area where we live you can't just get a job that pays that and still be home for the kids. It's just not happening. He wants me to go to school and get a degree. He says he doesn't care if I never work He just wants me to go to school and get a degree in something useful.
So what do you think is being a stay at home mom good enough? Is a woman considered "doing nothing with her life" If she does not go to school to have a career?
by the way I am considering homeschooling next year and am concerned I will not be able to handle that on top of an education for myself.
** I want to add that I do have a Early childhood education Certificate that I recieved while in High school. I worked at a day care after school for 3 years and also was a substitute teacher for 2 years So I do have some experience in Education.
