Awww I'm sorry your in-laws aren't happy. But your baby is your priority and I think its great your DH wants you to stay home and teach him. Its a hard job but its very rewarding and your baby will be so blessed to have you there to raise and influence him in the way you guys choose! I'm a SAHM and homeschooling mom and its a sacrifice we made that we felt was best for us. I hope you find encouragement and between you and your husband you decide what's best for your family! I'm praying for you.

Hi! I would encourage you to discuss it with your husband. Do whatever works best for you and your husband. Your in laws will become accustomed to whatever you guys decide in time. Praying for you!

Do what makes you happy and fulfilled. There's nothing more stressful than staying home with your child. More so that your in laws lives with you and doesn't approve of you staying home. Being a professor you at least will get to have your own identity and options in life.

Hi Deekira. i too am a stay at home mom. I have also worked before but made the choice to stay at home when my child began schooling. Its a tough choice.Living with your extended family aswell. I also get the lectures to work and not stay at home from my extended family, it upsets us to a point BUT the bigger picture is about our kids being happy that there mom is home for them when they back from school to help them and for me to see my kid happy im around him i just ignore what others says.We need to be there for our kids and if we have to make certain choices to do it so be it.Be happy. Lots of hugs
