There are a lot of good reasons for a mother of young children to need to work. Probably the biggest is reason is if she does not have a husband. Maybe he died, or left them, or was incarcerated, or for some other reason. Being a single mom would not be easy.
There is a day care center close to my home and they are very, very busy. I guess I am old fashioned but I believe that a child's parents are the ones that should raise him or her. The first five or six years are when the bond between both parents and the child is cemented. When we first got married, my wife worked, then when she was expecting our first child, she quite and has never went back to being employed again. She raised both our sons and took great care of me. We sure were not rich but we got by and now that I look back on that time, it was really great and I believe that we both were happy.
Many will not agree with me, and I know that I should not judge people. Like I said at the beginning, there are a lot of good reasons that a mother must work, but if it is not a necessity and just to have more stuff and to live in a fancier house or have a fancy car or to keep up with the Joneses or . . . etc, I don't believe they should do it. I know that a lot of you ladies out there have raised a family and had a working career. Some can handle it just fine and some rely way too much on others to raise their family for them. Now, have a great Sunday, you hear?
