    Whose sacrifice is the MOST in child's career growth. Mother or Father?

    Unarguably it's mother sacrifice is higher than father's, but when it comes to moral development of the child both have an equal role to play, though the child's response would differ with both, more likely the child tends to be more receptive to father than mother, but in either case roles of mother and father is of high value. As far the historical persons we see a deep impact of their mother's moral and spiritual stature rather than father.

    child's career growth may differ from person to another, from nation to another.
    but both of them, mother and father, play different and complementary role in child growth
    So .. i think it's incomparable

    It is comparable. Can you say which finger is more important?

    Having children is a (choice) not a sacrifice!
    Too many parents act as if they're doing their children a favor by providing for them. It's there parental obligation to do so!
    Getting what we want usually comes with a cost or requires some time and effort to maintain it whether it's children, a house, car, or pet.The child or whatever object is something (we) wanted!
    No one has to get married, have children, buy a home, or a pet.
    However if these are things one {wants} then the mature and responsible thing to do is to nurture and maintain them as best as possible. Having (what you want) is not a sacrifice. It's a blessing!
    Lots of people never get much of what they want out of life.
    A marriage is the union of two people. Whatever the child has is the result of both parents contributing to the household.
    It's a (team effort) and not a competition to see who gives more.

      Thnx DS, but I guess question is unclear. Q is not about negative/competitive. Unlike anyone, It's parents who contribute for their kids considering not as a sacrifice but As a boon. That contribution is unmatchable so is called Sacrifice universally

      Most of life "sacrifice" comes (before) we get it. You worked overtime to save money for a car, studied hard to get a degree, exercised/dieted to be a certain weight. Only with children do we say "sacrifice" (after) we have them! It's nurturing!

    Let me put my perspective/synopsis on this very question.  The subject of sacrifice varies from family to family.  Factors & variables include educational, socioeconomic, & family size backgrounds.  Who makes the most sacrifices regarding a child's career growth is highly individual.

    In many solidly middle, upper middle, & upper class families both parents play a crucial part in their children's career growth.  In these socioeconomic ranges, parents have the means & access to provide their children with better &/or even the best educational opportunities in order for their children to have a successful career.  They impart into their children the importance of an education & how to choose lucrative careers.  They also have the pull to have others in their circles to establish their child in a career.   

    In lower middle, working, & lower classes, parents oftentimes are unconcerned regarding their children's career growth.  The main impetus of such parents is that their children get a job.  In lower middle, working, & lower class homes, the issue of career growth, even obtaining a career is of slight or no importance.  The main emphasis is on a survival job which pays enough for the rent/shelter, food, & perhaps, other amenities if necessary.  In fact, lower middle, working, & lower class parents believe that obtaining a career is futile & for the more affluent/more educated classes & inculcate their children in that premise.

    In small families(1-2 children), it is both parents who make enormous sacrifices regarding their child/children's career growth.  They have small families w/ the purpose of providing their children w/mass educational, cultural, & socioeconomic opportunities so that their child/children can have a career.  In large/very large families(6 or more children), parents are little involved, even non-involved in their children's lives.  In such families, children raise/teach themselves &/or each other.  In large/very large families, it isn't the parents who make the most sacrifices regarding their children's career growth, it is the OLDEST/OLDER children who oftentimes must forego their OWN education/career growth in order to support &/or even help educate younger siblings to have careers instead of jobs which the oldest/older siblings have.

    This really is a loaded question  in America ,  Here the man goes off to work , often making  most of the income for  a family ,working  longer hours , being  the furthest  away from home most times  ,     I say both equally  share the burden ! Or at least should .   When many say the mom ;  it only means she has the most family present time , while dads are working away from the home more !  Some could see this as a sexist question !
