Default Re: In this space and time~ share your visions of the future/now

Karen, you a so right! And we have the science to back it up now. Before that, it was called common sense. Children were nurtured physically ("nursed") until they were three. Society needs to support these women to do so. Sometimes the old ways were, in fact, the right ways. Let's give young mothers (and fathers) the financial support they need. Let's stop throwing babies in day care into playpens (cages) with several other babies all day long. Let us have at least two caregivers (multi-generational) to take care of our most precious asset: our children. It is the only way out. It was not considered "cool" to stay at home and tend my children, but I rebelled and did so anyway. Nothing can replace those first three years.
