    I just was watching super nanny and was wondering which is tougher?
    1. The Military individual going off to war to defend the country.
    or
    2. The significant other staying home and raising the children.

    I can't say either is easy, but just wondering which one is tougher?

    With my (very) little experience with kids, I would definitely have to say number 2

    The toughest job has to go to the significant other who is having to deal with keeping the home going without them. They have to deal with the hassles of working (if they do), dealing with their and the child's or children's illnesses, shopping, and a hundred other chores either by themselves, or with the help of spouses from other deployed individuals. Then there is the major problem of having to hear what a superior officer, who is usually accompanied by the base chaplain, having to explain how their significant other is coming home in a casket, or having to deal with severe injuries of their mates. I know there are a lot of dangers in being deployed to a combat area, and I also know the heartache and frustration of being away from loved ones. But the deployed have a job to do and most do that job with honor and dignity. But the ones at home suffer more I think.
