My mother thinks that it's important for a woman to be working full time whether she has children or not. However, ideally I would like to stay home with my children. Is it better to stay home with your children when they're small or should you send them to day care to socialize and so you can go back to work?

I think thats a desicion every mother should choose herself! If you want to spend time with your child and you dont need to work because of finances then stay at home. I personaly chose to be a stay at home mom, because i want to be here for my son and spend time with him..i can always go back to work when he is at school. But for now i want to be here. Thankfully i can because we are stable financialy. What i dont understand (and this is just my personal point of view) are mothers that dont have to go work but give their 3months old baby to daycare so the mother can work. I know some mothers that do that. I couldnt. But i totaly understand that if a single mom has to because of earning money,or even a not single mother. That i understand! But if you dont need to financialy,i personaly rather stay at home. And being a stay at home mom doesnt meen you arent working :-) Taking care of a child or children and doing the household,shopping etc isnt that easy.
