***"mother doesn't stay home"  WHY?  Not all those mothers have to work.
That is a fallacy.  A good % *choose* to work.

***Easy question but most Americans are to freaking lazy to work it out or
make the effort.  Extended family can.  Parents can by working alternate
shifts.  Neighbors can "barter" babysitting so that children can be with
another form of extended family.  Oh, and the one that most folks don't want
to address, learn to do without the second car, the expensive house, the
Imelda Marcos shoe/wardrobe, etc., etc., etc.

***Not true.  AND, certainly not in the education capacity of doing it!
