Is a woman’s place really at home?

Read this fascinating account in The Guardian of one woman who decided her place was not in her home with her children but up the road. Rahna Reiko Rizzuto ¬†realised that the life of a full-time parent wasn’t for her – and as a result she was subjected to abuse and media vitriol.

She says her decision to be a part-time mother has turned out for the best for not just her Рbut her children and former husband.  She has the same amount of time with her children as many divorced fathers but has been viciously criticised as a bad mother for her choice.

Not many women would choose this path but I do admire her honesty and bravery in talking about it. It seems to me that as father’s become more involved with parenting, these kinds of choices may stop being so controversial and ultimately become just another way to run a family.

I’d be really interested to hear what anyone else thinks about Rahna’s choice?
