Moms Duke It Out!

Moms Duke It Out!

You’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t. Whether you should be a stay-at-home mom or a working mom is a never ending debate.

So when we saw that the Tyra Banks show had a segment where working moms and stay-at-home moms were able to duke it out and justify their motherly decisions, we were excited! Both sides had valid reasons for their decisions, but you know we’ve got your back, working mama.

Once again, all points very valid. Stay-at-home moms want to spend every waking moment with their kids while working moms feel like they need their job to stay sane. Ultimately, it’s all about what’s best for you and your child.

Have any of you ever considered quitting your job and becoming a stay-at-home parent? If you are at home, do you struggle at all with that decision?
