For what they’re worth
As for our excuses, well…
If we abandon them for a second income, we teach them that money is more important than people are.
If we abandon them for our own “career”, we teach them that motherhood is not worthy of consideration as a career.
If we abandon them for their younger siblings, we teach them that it is okay to start something, something as important as a person, and then not finish it.
If we abandon them for the sake of our sanity, we teach them that God’s grace is not sufficient.
If we abandon them—or if we home school them—we teach them. There is no way out; we have to.
We have to live with the results, too.
