In response to Kathy Gyngell: How the Left have stolen the foundations of life from children, Kola said:
I hear what you are saying. But from the moment I gave up work to care for my daughter, I have had judgement passed on me. I’m not a role model to my child; I don’t have a purpose; what do I do all day? and so on. Yet my child is happy, healthy, well-behaved and well-mannered. And sending her off to full-time school, I know I have done my best to help get her there.
I have felt nothing but pressure to go back into paid work, that my ‘work’ at home looking after my family is meaningless and without reward.
