Working in the home

 

Sir, – Could we once and for all end this debate on the economic cost and contribution of parents “working” in the home?

The idea is akin to thinking that because I do my own laundry, clean my own house, cook my own meals, etc, that I am saving the State money. I’m not; it’s called life. If a parent chooses to stay home and mind their own children, that too is life. Get over yourselves. – Yours, etc,
