How is child development impacted by having a stay-at-home mom as opposed to a working mom?

Complicated: In the early months/years family care will give the child more individual attention. Older toddlers/children can benefit from the social stimulation of daycare.

Be sure to research a daycare facility thoroughly. http://www.livestrong.com/article/72423-daycare-vs.-stay-home-parent/ ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. It sounds like you have been through a very difficult time. I don't think an on-line doctor can answer this very sensitive question. Ultimately, you will need to weigh in the pros and cons. I suggest that you work with a counselor. It would help you to process the abuse as well as being a good sounding board for how you will approach this in the future. I sincerely hope that you are on the road to healing. Take care. ...Read more
