Mom vs. Mom

November 10, 2003

Moms face off in the ultimate debate about the best way to raise children. Working moms think they are setting a strong example for their kids. Stay-at-home moms think they are doing the most important job in the world. Dr. Phil steps in and fields the impassioned opinions of both sides.

Poll: Should moms stay home with their kids?

To Work or Stay at Home?
Heidi has been a stay-at-home mom for years and is just now considering starting a career. Kasey is a working mom who is concerned that her career may get in the way of raising her young son and soon-to-be new baby. What is the right decision for each of these women?

Dr. Phil helps Heidi and Kasey weigh both sides. 

 


School Divides the Moms
Stay-at-home moms think that working moms should spend more time involved in school activities. But working moms argue that stay-at-home moms purposely push them out of the school by scheduling daytime meetings and activities.

Dr. Phil finds out what's really happening in the schools.
