RE: welcome Camille Bryce 8/16/2015 8:44:44 PM I'm thankful I was able to stay at home and raise my son, but I was also able to work from home at the time. For any parent whether it be mom or dad, raising children is a "Full-time" job. As Professor Fawn mentioned it a job that that never ends, we can't clock out without taking the little ones with us. I have a friend whose wife stays at home with their children and he realizes that what she does it a job. He has set up her own bank account, her own Roth and she's has funds saved for retirement. He sees to it that she too is taken care of just in case God forbid something happens to him but also to giver her that sense of independence as well. RE: welcome Darcy Baggs 8/16/2015 9:09:31 PM I definitely think equality is possible, even with the previous ideas that the human race has had about gender, race, and sexual preference. Look at the strides we have managed to make in the past 50 years! In fact, I personally have seen a lot of role reversal happening in my lifetime. It seems that more and more, women are becoming the “bread winners” and there are several men that stay at home with the kids. I think that society is starting to find the grey area with all of this instead of thinking in such a black and white frame

I have said it before and I will say it again, I think that the use of the internet and the ability to communicate around the globe and with other cultures has made a massive leap possible for understanding and tolerance. RE: welcome Eric Grimm 8/16/2015 9:12:16 PM I do believe equality is possible for this unpaid role. However, I do not think this is something that we as a race are equipped to handle yet. I think it will take a lot of time before this could be accomplished. The human race would first have to be able to see each other as simply another human being, not man or woman, black or white and so one. I think this is only possible once we are able to leave all forms of prejudice behind. RE: welcome Christy Ridgeway 8/16/2015 9:31:14 PM Honestly I would love to stay at home with my kids. I would actually be able to 1. spend time with them and 2. be able to contribute more around the house to make sure it was clean. I know that my husband would rather me stay at home but if the roles were switched where I was the one making more money, he would stay home. It just seems impossible though due to the price of everything and having to have insurance. I think that if more of the population could afford to stay at home with this unpaid role, I believe more people would no matter the gender though.
