Forgive me for I am an ESFP- I often times speak before I think all the way through my thought, or should I say, I push publish before I read through what I wrote. I am referring to the daycare post. A close friend of mine and had a good conversation about the issue in the media and my issue with not putting our children in daycare. But my friend helped me see that what I should have said is:
What happened is a horrible and sad thing that I hope no parent ever has to go through.
Our conversation got me thinking and I am would love your feedback:
Why do you or don't you stay home with your children? Or why did you or didn't you stay home with your kids?
The topic has me highly intrigued by how people make the choices they do, especially when it comes to family. Being that I do stay home, I come in contact with several stay at home moms and we are usually all on the same page, so the topic of conversation never comes up. I never think someone is wrong for putting their children- nor do I think someone is perfectly right for not putting them in day care. Believe me, some days I think my children and I would all be better off if they were in daycare. I often times I am doing them more harm than good. And to be honest, we are going to need to cross that child care issue soon as I begin to think about returning to the work force. I pray daily about the best choices for our family, for me and for bringing glory to God.
Please let me know how or why you have chosen or chose the path you and your family chose.
