PostSubject: Choosing to have children and work   Sun May 20 2007, 02:19

Just wondered what you thought.

I feel the best place for mum is at home until their children are in full time education.

However, circumstances have changed, and I may have to go back to work. I never wanted to go while my children aren't yet in school.

Do you think it's selfish for mums to go back to work full time after a matter of weeks of their baby being born? Or never planning to stay at home after the first 6 months?

What effect do you think this has on the children?

Hello,

i don't know if guys are allowed here Smile..but i really like this topic..and i just want to say my otinion..im with you..mums should never leave home until their kids grow up and go to school, unless the current cirumstances forces them to go to work...shortage of money or something..but that mum who has no money problems and leave the kids to go to work..nono..i don't like this..and this is selfish..Her kids are her life now..and her home is her kingdom Smile...

Hi! Of course guys are allowed here! (you should post an intro lol)

I'm with you apart from 'her kids are her life now'.

I agree with staying at home until the children are in school, but a mum is a woman and a wife too. My children will always be the biggest part of my life, but I'm more than just a mum too. Smile

p.s any luck with the logo? lol

I think if a mum knows during her pregnancy that she's going to go backto work soon after the baby is born, then that's selfish. Thinking about leaving the baby before it's even born!

Single mums are a different story. They have to work, they have no choice.

If you are a couple, I think one parent should stay at home until the children are all in school. Some people need more income, but full time is a bit much I think.

I've never understood why some women have children just to leave them with a childminder everyday when they don't need to.

My situation::

Im 22 living with my mum but still with my partner aimees daddy..

we cant afford a mortgage im on benefits..aimee is now almost 15 months

Now i agree a mother should go straight back to work but i dont think a mum should have to wait til the child is in full time education..

A mum should go back to work when they can..most mums go back to work when child is between 6 months and 1 year..I am jobhunting now..mum will look after aimee 2 days a week and aimee will go into nursery 3 days..this is so aimee has family time but will see other childlren too

I think each family needs to make that decision for themselves. A blanket "this is the right thing to do" will not fit all situations.
I'd love to be a SAHM but we can't afford for me to do that. Does this mean I shouldn't have a child? Am I being selfish getting pregnant and knowing I will have to go back to work after 9 months? I don't think so.

I think you have to do whats right for your family circumstances although I think its hard for women to go back to work and leave a newborn baby. I dont think I could do it.
