Why should one parent stay at home in the first place?
Maybe so the little brats don't stick their fingers in a light bulb socket or perhaps because they are not potty trained!
So if a parent is not looking after their kids it means:
1. The babies are not receiving adequate nutrition (ie breast milk)
2. The kids are being "looked after" by complete strangers who may or may not have the values that you want for your family.
3. Your children are bonding with someone else. They will are not bonding with you like they should be if you only see them for one hectic hour in the morning and a couple of hours before they go to bed at night.
4. The kid is open to child molestation. And don't think that that it won't happen to your
And once it does happen there is nothing that you can do change things back to the way they used to be. Your child will be permanently scarred and you will be to blame for not providing a proper enviorment for the life that you are responsible for. Trust me, you don't want this heartache so why take the chance?
Do you really think that your life is about you and your career, once you have kids? It's not! It's about the kids.
