  1. Peer Pressure

    Friday, January 25, 2013

     Peer Pressure...when we think of it, we think of it just for our children, but it's still there for us as adults.
    We live in a world where everyone has everything. Oh, I want you go and buy it. It may be with cash, check card, or credit card. We live in a world where both parents in the home go to work every single morning. They drop their kids off at school, or grandparents house, or the babysitters. Why? Because they have so many expenses, wants, wishes that they can't afford for one parent to stay at home and raise their children. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking women who work...I'm just saying that we should reevaluate and look at what is really important. I have had so many conversations with women who work and they don't want to. They want to stay at home and take care of their children. I always ask them this question..."Can you make it on your husbands income?" The answer is normally this, "Yes, we can. It would be tight. We couldn't go out to eat whenever we want, we couldn't go shopping whenever we want, but we could make it."  So my question is again, "What is important?"  Raising your children and making your home what it needs to be, or being able to eat out and shop whenever you want.
