Your children are just like mine. They are children.
Children deserve to be protected. We should provide generations to come an environmentally clean environment. What about employment related paid time off (PTO) for those occasions when parents should stay at home to care for a sick child? In a modern society, paid maternity and paternity leave does make sense, too. I have talked to far too many mothers who feel particularly torn when they must chose work over their bonding time with their baby.
Affordable child care is required for people to go to work while they are left to merely hope their children will learn constructive things during the day in a safe environment. We live in communities which should provide families places for frolic and play while recognizing many are on a tight budget.
Why you might add? Do it for the love of children…
