Which is worse as a mother?

Working too much to provide for your children, giving them everything they need, but spending very little quality time with them

Or

Not working enough to provide for them, not giving them everything they need, but giving them all of your time?

er...probably the second 2 in my opinion

i would rather my child have everything they need even if that means not being able to spend time with them. i wouldnt want my child going hungry 


but both of them suck and i would never actually do either of them

I find that when people look back to their childhoods, more resent being poor than not having mom around as much.  It seems like a child would want mom, but I think they want stability more than anything.  At some point you dont care if mom is there 24/7 when you go to bed hungry and you are teased at school for being poor.

Really? Does this pitting parent against parent ever get old around here?

I'd like to think that most mothers are doing the best they can either way.

I agree... I'm a mean girl at my core till the cows come home, but man, is it really any excuse to call someone a bad mom?

Since I fall into one of those categories, I was contemplating it. If you don't want to share your opinion, that is fine.
