What is this, the 50s? Women who have sick children but have a job, are all of a sudden horrid mothers who don't think about their kids?
We're not supposed to work if we can afford to stay home?
Children are magically healthy because their mommies are at home?
If my kid gets bronchitis, I'm not going to QUIT MY JOB, to stay at home. That does NOT MEAN I'm a bad mommy who puts myself before my child, it means I'm bloody well realistic. My kid won't heal magically the second I quit. And that whole "Yeah, some people shouldn't have kids" remark is pissing me off to no end.
I feel sorry for the girl they're talking about, to have such a closed minded "friend".
