Reader’s Comment of the Day: The best child care is at home with mum


In response to Sally Goddard Blythe: A new chapter in the destruction of childhood. Ten-hour days for tots, Busy Mum wrote:

‘…to help boost employment among mothers’. Being a mother is more than enough employment for anyone. The Government is sending a message to new mothers that having a baby is easy as pie; said mothers are therefore feeling terribly inadequate when they find out how much work a baby is. When did you last hear of a government initiative to ‘boost employment among fathers’?

And all these nurseries will be flaunting their child:carer ratios. The poor mums will never get a chance to take a step back and think, hang on a minute, my child could have 1:1 care at home with me.
