3. It's financial advice, NOT parenting advice

I am cracking up at the incredibly defensive comments that have been made about this very necessary article. Get a grip ladies, the article isn't criticizing your parenting skills. It's simply asking you to take a look at your financial and life-planning skills. Let's face it, only a small percentage of people (men and women) make rational, sound decisions when considering parenthood and all that comes with it. I'll bet that every mother and even some fathers would love to be able to stay at home with their kids. Unfortunately, that is not an option for everyone. For those who do and who are relying solely on one paycheck to pay the bills, the article raises valid issues to consider to help plan for the future. It's no different than looking at life insurance coverage. So to the moms and non-moms on the list, stop arguing with each other, see if the advice makes sense to you, and apply it where necessary.
