Thanks to all parents

In response to “Stay Home With Your Kids,” it is upsetting that women still find it necessary to criticize one another for the work/no work choices we make. There are excellent mothers, adequate mothers, and terrible mothers--and fathers, too, for that matter. There are many women who work that spend every free moment making dinner with their kids, helping them with homework, snuggling, playing games, and then spend hours after the kids go to bed getting ready for the next work day. There are stay-at-home moms who put their kids in front of a TV all day. Some mothers are at their best when they have a career; some mothers thrive being home with their little ones. Some dads love being home and taking care of their kids. Some women simply have no choice and need to work to put food on the table. Interestingly, I never see posts judging men for their work choices. Let’s move beyond this argument and respect parents for the job they do and give them the freedom to decide what is best for their families.
