  1. I came across this article and read through it with disgust, but felt you guys can do a much beter job of ripping it to shreds than I can.

  2. maybe you’d like to rip into this šŸ˜‰ in a more intelligent fashion than my brief outburst here

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/8278742.stm

    “The Institute of Child Health study of more than 12,500
    five-year-olds found those with working mothers less active and more
    likely to eat unhealthy food.”

    I’m cross on so many levels, but mainly a personal one! I work, my
    husband (a father!) doesn’t , he is Raffy’s main carer. He walks her
    to school (and back each day), he looks after her after scholl stuff,
    and cooks her meals (from scratch!) every day.

    why do they insist on saying ‘mother’ when they often mean ‘parent’
    and in this case they are referring to a study where BOTH parents
    worked.

    It’s wrong on other levels too of course, but for me it’s the
    stupidity of assuming a mum stays at home and a dad works – are we
    still in the 50’s???????

    and implying lazy parenting by anyone is insulting….most single mums
    spend more quality time with their kids to make up for the guilt
    heaped on them for daring to work!!!!!!!!

    grrrrrrrrrrrrr

  3. Ah, women after our own heartlessness. We love it.

  4. I found an article (linked off neatorama, a very non-critical thinking blog) which highlights the link between depressed mothers and anxious and depressed babies and toddlers. The original article is fairly academic and not too blaming, but the summary comes across as ‘bad(sad) mother, making your child depressed’ and sounds like depression is a choice. Zero mention of fathers either causing depression themselves or causing depression in the mother, not to mention all the other societal influences, just bad mothers.

    neatorama link – http://www.neatorama.com/2009/10/05/depression-in-mom-depression-in-baby-and-toddler/

    and if there is a better and more convenient way to submit articles let me know.

  5. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/features/mama-youre-on-her-mind/story-e6frg6z6-1225878423523 This is a lovely interview which I feel could benefit greatly from the wisdom in these parts. Oh please please take it on!! *whiny voice*

  6. From the wikipedia article on serial killers: The mother normally plays the largest role in the development of a child. Maternal overprotection ā€” combined with the lack of paternal influence ā€” has resulted in the development of many sexually violent men.
