I don't think that is what he meant. I think he meant a One income family where one parent was always at home and always available to spend time with the children. Maybe it got lost in the terminology of the "old days" stereotypes where daddy went to work and Mom took care of the house...irrelevant to the point though.
When we were forced to send both "home makers" into the work force, our children suffered. I have no doubts this is...if not intentional on the part of the State... welcome by them nonetheless. This invites silent bureaucrats into your life where they make new rules, laws and regulations to control your home and your growing family...it used to not need to be this way.edit on 1/8/2013 by Jeremiah65 because: (no reason given)

when were the women not working?? just wondering here???
I mean I can show you old picture of women working back in time...they were working!
and well, to be honest, my mom worked as a bartender at the neighborhood bar...
my father worked at the city water plant...
and well, alot of times their schedules clashed and I ended up going to work with one or another...
(how many kids do you see in bars today?)
I grew up in danged bars, it taught me one thing...
I hate drunks!!
but, well, my mom worked had to. my grandma worked, had to, and well before that one they were working at home producing quilts and other sewing things for money..
so, when were they not working.

You know I was thinking, in light of all these children and teems who are being arrested for possible attacks on their schools, those kids are eventually found out to been picked on, parents putting their children on ADD and ADHD medication, I come to realize, we have failed as parents.
I was picked on, beat up, spit on, you name it, it happened to me as a kid growing up. We were one of the poorest families in the neighborhood, and my mother and stepdad had the rep of being the drunks of the neighborhood, in other words, white trash on Long Island NY. this was back in the 80's
Never ONCE did I EVER even THINK about killing anyone or blowing up the school.
We just didnt think about doing that back then.
What did we do as parents, to fail our children, to make them think about doing these things?
