Every family’s circumstances, struggles, finances, values... are different. Not one family dynamic is the same as another’s. It is not up to the public, to strangers, to someone from the opposite sex or the opposite political party or the opposite end of the socio-economical spectrum to say whether what we do, the choices we make for our families, works or not.
