Study: No risk of behavior problems for working moms

This topic can get heated...let's keep it cool ladies!

My personal feeling about this is relief. I was with my 1st daughter for 5 years - no school, no babysitters, 24/7. IT WAS HARD!

Now I'm working again so 2nd daughter started daycare school at 2.5. I feelings of guilt - but also feel like I am a better mom because my personal feelings of accomplishment and less financial worry.

Your thoughts?


p.s.I used to work on the radio host Dr. Laura's production team. She is strongly against any daycare, preschool or babysitters - so that probably compounded my anxiety.

I think that if you pay attention all of what moms should and should not do that is reported in the media, you will drive yourself insane. Focus on raising your own child to your best ability and not worry about these fearmongering media driven studies.

I agree with locasta- I think you need to do your own thing, and not worry too much.
Personally I would love to stay home with my dd, but I am just not able to due to finances. Lots of people are in that situation, and it is not worth worrying if it will hurt your child.
My mil watches my dd, and I think it has been good for her. She has really great social skills, and is comfortable with many different people to take care of her. My mother did not work when I was little, and I was a very shy, withdrawn child. Not that I blame the shyness on that nessasarily, but I often wonder if it contributed...

Two clearheaded responses - I expected nothing less!

I think my mom faced much less guilt and anxiety about parenting because she didn't have the constant stream of information from the "interwebs"
