    In an ideal world would one parent always stay home and raise the children?

    What are the pros and cons of being a stay at home parent?

    As we see it more people are opting to work at home. The ideal solution would be for both parents to be home with the children. Children need input from both parents and the more time they have with both the better, this in an ideal world where abuse does not come into play. If this is not possible then it is best for one to be home.

    We will have to admit there are situations, actually certain people whose children do better being raised by the community. No matter what the community should be involved with raising children. It doesn't matter if it it a community of family or just those who live close. Children get a better view of the world with more people in it.

    I totally agree with wheelinallover- they just said it first! The ideal situation would be both parents staying at home and equally participating in the raising of the child/ren.

    I work full-time during the day, my husband works at night, and takes care of our daughter during the day. I wish I could stay home, but financially, it is not an option. It works for us, but it is certainly not the ideal situation for all families indeed.

    We are lucky that our child has one of us at home to learn from, but it can be tough when both parents disagree with the discipline and has different parenting styles.

    Some times, it is best for the child to be in a positive learning environment, which might honestly be away from both parents. Then, the parents can appreciate their children at home because staying at home parenting can be rewarding, but also stressful.

    Typically Yes! You see women use to be known as ,even now depending on their ability,a stay at-home mom.But you have so many fathers out there today that are finding ways and honest ways to make there share of finances from home so the mother does not have to worry about day-care and stuff like that.But I say to you,be mind strong at every point and don't let nobody tell you you're nothing but a mother for life itself is a gift.

    In an ideal world both parents would but unfortunately not many people are in a position where they can choose to do this.  Although sadly even when they are they don't choose to.  I am lucky to be a single stay at home /home school Mum and I love every second, these years are so precious they are children for such a short time.
