I posted an alternate view from popular blogger Heather Spohr last year, and it seems like a timely counter-point now:
I would say that I'm guilty of putting my kids first-- language that implies that I think I'm wrong to do that...I'm not sure where I stand on this.
I know that it's long been said that the best thing you can do for your child is love their father, and there's no doubt that I do. But when it comes to whose needs are met first? It's the kids'-- at least for now.
What about you?
