What do you think is the optimum time for both moms and babies to be on maternity leave?

my dad isn't a rallier although he did stand on the picket lines when teachers went on strike back in the 1970s, Lol. i don't know what his position is about the whole obamacare thing but i think he'd be mad if that meant big changes to what he was used to all these years, and his or senior citizen concerns in general are valid ones!

Did I miss something? Who said that your dad's or senior citizen concerns are not valid?

I think it depends on the mother and child, but I think companies should offer an option up to 6-9 months.

actually no, i do not think quality daycare interferes with SAH, i don't think the study was even comparing working parents to homes with stay at home parents.

What's funny about a picket line?

If you don't know his position on the subject, why do you think he would be mad about possible changes?

Would he be mad about the government providing the benefits he enjoys to those who currently don't have any health insurance?

I am not sure what you are trying to say. You seemed to be against subsidized daycare, because you seemed to think that it meant the government would tell you how to raise your child.
