    Whew! How did this thread turn into the mommy wars! The two exmteres of working outside the home vs. staying home are always going to be there .but most of us are somewhere in the middle trying our best with the tools available to us to raise responsible, caring and intelligent children. I work outside the home, but have family and friends who are stay-at-home parents, and all of us, at one time or another, need a little break especially with our partner or to do something as simple as getting a hair cut. Our society has changed significantly over the last century in that many of us do not live around our own parents or extended families anymore. I remember staying with my grandparents for the weekend when I was little so my parents could have some time to themselves. Mom and Dad often employed outside babysitters and for us it meant staying up later and having something special like pizza for dinner! My own parents and sibling now live hours away, so we can’t rely on them for little breaks or even in the event of work emergencies or civic duties like jury duty. Babysitting is a valuable service. It was the first job that I ever had and it allowed me to start a savings account and to not rely on my parents for cash if I wanted to buy something that interested me. In my opinion, everyone wins.
