Which is more practical? Stay home mom or stay home father?
A couple is having financial issues regarding their upcoming child.
Both parents work full time jobs in the morning. Once the baby arrives, who should leave their job to take care of the child full time? Assuming they can't afford daycare.
The mom? Who works at a company with a community of people she knows. Basically, local folks that she knows before she started working. She is motivated to getting higher within the company but no educational motivation. If she stays home with the child, she can prepare food and clean the house.
The father? Who works at a company and has a stable job. The company is very stiff and structured. No chance of climbing up the ladder. He is motivated to furthering his education and taking online courses. He already has two degrees. If he stays home with the child, he can further his education and maybe start a business.
Both parents currently make the same $$.
