I know two families where the non-bio dad adopted the child. In one case they weren't even married, but a long-term relationship. In both cases they split up and the man maintained a relationship with the child through adulthood. They are two young adult women who have great supportive relationships with father-figures who were there for them when their bio dads were not. I don't see anything wrong with that. I don't think the men feel like they were "stuck" with these girls. [ Reply | More ]

I guess I did what a tutor might do. I don't think there was anything wrong with it. It was really only the one year, she needed less help in 10th and really none in 11 and 12.

[ - ] I work very part time but have a potential dream job opportunity that I would have a very good chance of getting. It is what I got my somewhat obscure masters to do. The problem is that I have 3 kids, ages 5,7, 10 and my husband works a lot. I’m trying to determine whether I should just hope something like this comes up 10 years down the line. I know I can outsource childcare but my middle child is very high need. Not special needs, but had some emotional issues. Any advice? 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

A dream job won't come up 10 years from now, and if it does there are 10 years worth of new people competing for it. Take it and make it work. [ Reply | More ]

Go for it! Worry about how to make it work after you get a job. Many of us with multiple dcs, even some with lots of needs manage to work full time. We do what we must for our family AND ourselves. [ Reply | More ]

I completely understand where you are coming from. Go for it. If you get it and try it, you will see how it goes. Outsource everything you can- cleaning, cooking etc, so when you are home, you can be 100% with dc. [ Reply | More ]

You should really go for it. You can find support for your family easier than you will find another dream job. You will always regret passing it up, but you won't regret taking it. Think about it: if really becomes impossible, you can leave, but if you pass on it, there are no guarantees it will come your way again, esp if you never give yourself a chance to get it on your resume.

Do it anyway. You'll regret it and resent dc's issues. Maybe having you around less will make dc a little less emotional (more independent). [ Reply | More ]

Go for the dream job and give up being the dream mother for that middle child. [ Reply | More ]

This is kind of sad. Do you have a very needy child? I do and giving up on being a great mom for him breaks my heart. But I think she can be a dream mom and work at the dream job. [ Reply | More ]

I would go for it, give it a year, and reassess. Hard to have it all, but you can prioritize different things at different times if you keep the big picture in mind. [ Reply | More ]

I was a very anxious kid--always had to be around my mom. Tbh I got a lot better when she went back to work and I became more independent and realized my abilities. Sometimes that is all a kid needs too--to learn their own strengths. [ Reply | More ]
