Absolutely spot on.

I have a more novel approach that is more effective. Raise your own children. Who has the best interest of your children in mind. The Pre-School teacher or you?

@Redshirt -- I think that's what she's saying.

'I have a more novel approach that is more effective. Raise your own children.'

All 12 of them..?

How about another novel approach of only having children you can support?

Instead of putting the burden of raising them on the public dime.

To "Pagan" yes, all 12 of them. In most cases it is cheaper for a mother to stay at home than to pay for daycare for multiple children.

Who is to say that I can't support 12 kids? What more do they need than good clean cloths, food, a warm bed, jobs around the house to teach them responsibility, and help with homework?

Kids don't need their own room, TV's, cell phones, cars, etc.... So raising kids is actually cheaper than you think.

To "Wonder" she isn't saying that. She just says talk to your children more. The article is directed at people who rely on daycare and preschool programs. I have never seen a stay at home Mom ignore her kids like working women do.

Yes, talk to them. At any age. There's something about young children that turns a lot of adults into babbling fools, making all kinds of goofy noises. From early on my kids knew that that, in the course of their lives, they could get a cut or abrasion or a contusion even, but never a 'boo boo'.
