Isn't part of taking care of the kids, providing for them financially?
The post about â€“ if dadâ€™s canâ€™t take care of their kids without SM, then the kids should go to mom â€“ has gotten me thinking.
Isnâ€™t part of taking care of your children providing for them financially? I think a lot of times fathers are punished, or are thought to be less involved, because they work â€“ especially if their work doesnâ€™t offer some sort of sick days. I feel like a lot of people are angry if BF works and SM helps out with the kids *.
What about situations where BM is a stay at home mom, because SF is the breadwinner? Since part of taking care of your children is providing for them finically, wouldnâ€™t the SF in this situation be doing BMâ€™s job? If itâ€™s not okay for BF to delegate household responsibilities to SM, is it okay for BM to delegate the financial responsibility to SF?
* Now â€“ there is a huge difference between SM helping out while BF is working, and BF working 24/7 and leaving everything up to SM.
