Being a working parent can be a difficult balance of responsibilities to constantly juggle, but it also gives you financial security and an invaluable sense of independence...

Asking someone to leave their career to be a stay-at-home parent may be the best financial and emotional decision for the family, but it also could be a serious risk to their future stability, sense of identity, or mental health.

So, when a working mom decided to consult Reddit's, "Am I the As*hole?" about wanting to have access to her own money if she chooses to become a stay-at-home mom for her potential third child, people were quick to offer advice.

AITA (Am I the As*hole) for not wanting to be a stay at home mom unless I'm paid?

My boyfriend and I have 2 kids and have been together for a number of years, I have always worked apart from when on maternity leave. We are considering a third and talking about what that would mean as the others are well out of the baby/toddler stage. He makes 5 times what I do and we could easily afford for me not to work but I don't want to lose the independence, especially as we aren't married.
