Working Mom/Stay Home Mom?

Today's Oprah show was all about the topic of working moms vs. stay-at-home moms. Frankly, it all comes down to guilt -- how do we all really feel about the choices that we make in our lives? I thought it was so interesting to watch the different moms judge each other -- why can't we all just get along? It seems like each mom, even the ones who claim to be completely secure with their own lives, feels a need to judge the choices of other moms.

Click here to read the poll that the Oprah website conducted.

Some interesting statistics:
Stay at home moms -- 62% of their moms worked outside the home
Working moms -- 68% of their moms worked outside the home

Wouldn't you have thought there might be some difference? I would have.

When asked if stay-home moms get the respect they deserve, BOTH kinds of moms overwhelmingly (85%) said NO. So why aren't they all being respectful of each other!?

I find the whole thing to be incredibly interesting...what do you think?
