I’ve written several posts in recent days about the potential pitfalls of the SAHM option. Because so many people aren’t actually reading what I’m writing and are leaving angry comments on what they think I might have written, I’ve been reduced to using my glorified cave art skills to communicate.
And yes, you can flip everything around for SAHDs as well.
And yes, these are broad strokes of the brush.
And to be explicitly clear – calling my own daughters “bright” isn’t the same as calling you “stupid”. Get the hell over yourself if you’re offended by a father praising his own daughters.
All I’m saying is having a stay at home parent has major potential downsides that are NEVER talked about until it’s too late and someone is all but destroyed.
