I would feel guilty if I put my children in daycare so I could work. I would rather be home with the kids until they are old enough to go to school. I don't think it's wrong to put children in daycare, but I just wouldn't feel comfortable with it. I wouldn't feel as guilty if I left them with relatives. They would be more comfortable with a relative than they would at a daycare, which would make me feel better.

When I did have a full time job (over a year ago), I worked nights and my husband worked days to cover childcare. Even though my husband was at home with the kids, I did feel guilty at times for having to leave them. I think that's just a normal part of being a parent.
