I was in the doctor's office the other day and came across an article in Ladies' Home Journal by Nancy Bilyeau. The article was referring to The Feminine Mistake, a book by Leslie Bennetts. Here's a quote:
In her new book, The Feminine Mistake, Leslie Bennetts issues a wake-up
call to women who have chosen to leave the workforce to stay home and raise
their kids full-time. "Opting out," she argues, puts women at financial risk for
the rest of their lives. Bennetts, a longtime wife and working mother of two,
spoke to us about the dangerous trade-off she believes such moms are making.
A wake up call? Seriously?
I can think of no greater profession than to raise healthy children who have good self-esteem, know that they're loved, are well taught, and are shown a passion for the Lord. Yes, it is a sacrifice and unfortunately, not all moms can afford to stay at home. But seriously, a "dangerous trade-off"? Errrrr!
If you think you won't get too angry, you can listen to the entire podcast here.
