Is it better to stay at home with kids

I think so. It is worth the sacrafice. I understand about men be able to be nurturers but most of the time they don't do their fair share. Un less of course you work 2 differnt shifts. Nobody accept maybe a grandparent can love and nuture your child the way you can. Of course sometimes there is no chioce.
I just think most couple put a much higher life style above their kids . I stayed home in th80's it was a sacrfice I never regretted nor my husband of 25 years.

I don't understand what this has to do with fitness and health workout site, other than you are trying to pick a fight?

Let's keep to the subject of health and fitness, something we all agree on and is important.

This debate will continue forever and ever. It's a no-win - there are positives and negatives to both. SAHMs become really boring and obsessed about really stupid things (sometimes) yet they are doing this most important thing - watching and being there for their children. WOHMs still have a life, are generally happier, but consumed with the guilt of not staying home. Can't win this argument. There's no answer.

I was not looking to start a fight. I was just looking for support hoping I wasn't the only one who believed it is worth the sacrfice to stay home.

To OP - I am sorry I can't take you seriously. You sound barely literate.

9:38 - if you were the original poster you stated that you did this in the 80's, so I don't really believe you are looking for support now in 2007?
you were looking for a fight, or to make others feel bad, or what ever - this is not the place.
