Someone on another board posted this link.
http://blogs.babycenter.com/celebrities/2009/04/12/dr-laura-says-all-moms-should-stay-at-home/?scid=momstodd_20090414_A:2&pe=2U8vYLf
It's about Dr. Laura saying that all women should be SAHMs until the child is at least 3 years old.

Whether we're talking about working or staying at home, I can't quite wrap my head around what is going on inside the brains of people that apply the phrase "all women should".

Do you think militants are actually serious, or just trying to get a rise out of others?

>>Quite honestly, I think the people who follow her "militantly" are anxious, and need that structure and affirmation.

I would have to read more of work to form an opinion on Dr. Laura. What you are telling me is definitely making me curious.


me too.

"What really bothers me about the msahm that posts here is that they have no regard for the fact that I've been a parent for over 17 years -- with 3 children (and now one sd in the mix). I pretty sure I know what I'm doing by now, LOL!"

Her ability to bear children does not reflect her ability to parent a child.

So it's ok for a mother to work, as long as she's a hypocrite about it?

No, silly. My ability to RAISE my children -- who are now 17, 15, 13 and 11 (sd) -- reflects my ability to parent (and parent well).

Does the same work for sahms? Their ability to bear children shouldn't reflect their ability to parent those kids???
