We were fortunate at the time (20 years ago) the wifes company would let the new mothers stay out (unpaid) 6 months - it was great.
The dubious source is noted. But even a stopped clock....
I couldn’t agree more and have since the mid-70s when all my friends went to work and put their kids in daycare. I did w/o new cars, new houses, cute clothes, all the new inventions to stay home with my kids.
Dr. Laura used to be on the radio in our area, but hasn’t been for a while. Its a shame. She used a line (from her grandfather, as I recall) that I still use with my own daughters. “Men will not do, what women don’t allow.”
My wife could have gone back to a (multiple) six figure career and we could have kept an S class and range Rover in the garage, early retirement and lived even better than we do.
Instead we have polite, smart, loving, and well adjusted offspring and there is nothing we would trade that for.
I do not believe this is intended to encourage women to quit working outside the home. I see this as a push to demand paid maternity leave for as long as one year, made mandatory for all employers.
Wait for it.
I know mothers worked when I was growing up in the 60’s and 70’s but was not aware of even the concept of “daycare” back then. Perhaps tighter family bonds were resourced for childcare, or people just stayed married with one breadwinner in the house, despite their differences.
Daycare seems like a relatively very recent invention.
Bless you, sir.
I think of all the little kids at home watching “Criminal MInds” instead of making friends. Do they grow up to join Antifa?
Absolutely true, absolutely stunning, and somehow just as you always knew.
News Flash: babies need their mothers. Their mothers.
Will the Banshees start howling about this? Or will they just ignore it and hope the dumbass public doesn’t find out about it?
Absolutely untrue. Please. You don't know what you're talking about this time.
The plea is for MOTHERS. Better yet, MOTHERING. Mothering the verb.
What they call "Quality Time," but LARGE QUANTITIES of it.
It's kids who never got a chance OVER TIME, in the first three years of their lives, to bond with their mothers, that end up "needing" the g- d- pharmaceuticals.
I realize I'm raving, but there is nothing I am more certain of: mother-deprivation is the beginning of the end of the world.
Totally false, her argument is Anti-drugging and treats it as a poor substitute for maternal care.
As you know -— but I’ve got to say it -—That’s not mothering.
Half the shrinks that are practicing, are, at the same time offering “advice” to others, seeing shrinks themselves for their own mental problems.
The object of schools now is to diagnose children with “something”. It’s all about the money.
When you turn your kids over to the system at an early age, you have zero clue as to what they are being taught. People with ulterior motives, whether they be pedophiles, leftists or antifa-ish types, gravitate towards children to corrupt their young minds and lie to the parents. I trust no one with my kids. NO ONE!
When these people get a hold of your kids, how could the kids NOT turn out psycho?
Too many single moms.
