Career Moms vs Stay at Home moms.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Really there should be no vs here.  But there is, so here is my take on the argument.

Go to College, get your degree, but don't be afraid of getting married and having a family while your on that path.  You are more likely to feel guilty about leaving your career if you've already started it. Or leaving your kids if you have a career. I'm not saying don't have a career. YET, how do you really know if that is what you want to do? I went to college with every intention of becoming a teacher. Since having kids and getting into the parenting life, I've realized that THAT isn't what I REALLY want to do for the rest of my life. But I wouldn't of learned this any other way. Putting a family first before your career is not a sin. It's not belittling yourself in a demeaning guilt fest. I understand some don't have the option, but for those that do. Pick having a family.

I am a sahm..and wouldn't have it any other way..I tried college and it didn't work for me. I have adult ADD and it was hard for me. No matter how much I studied..I couldn't get past the classes.
So I am a sahm and wouldn't have it any other way

I'm pretty sure overgeneralizations and assumptions aren't smart. Js.

Quoting FL2AK:

I am raising mine too, right beside my husband. I just happen to also work. I am pretty sure we all are raising our children.

I'm a sahm first, and I plan to take online classes and get a job when my youngest is in school.

Awesome. I never stated otherwise. I can only speak for myself.
