Who does he think he is? Has he ever given birth or has the responsibility of bringing a child into the world? Sure he plays a role but you cannot under any circumstance replace the mother.
"The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new." Rajneesh
I was the sole parent of a son for 14 years. No help at all & worked 3 jobs to make ends meet. All I wanted was to be a stay at home Mom but because I am not a parasite I worked my butt off. When my son was 14 years old I married a wonderful man & have 2 children with him. They are both teenagers now, but when they were young I was blessed to be a "stay at home Mom." However, in my humble opinion it was & still is the hardest job I have ever had. To do it right & not count on someone else to raise your children takes work. Lots of work. If I was to be paid for all of the things I had to do to take care of everything I would be a millionaire.
"If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much." Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
Perhaps our choice of giving up our children to strangers as young as six weeks is why we have such dysfunction in society? Or perhaps we choose to have someone else to blame when they become a product of their environment? I am not saying that there is not a place in society for childcare, daycare, etc. but it is a mother's job to do it not a paid underlings responsibility to do it.
