    It's ingrained that middle class married women should be with their children. If you're a poc or poor or heaven forbid both you are 'lazy' for staying home to raise your children. Your place is at any sorry mcjob that will take you. And who watches your children? No, sorry, no one cares about that either until they are hurt or found alone. Then you're a bad mom.
    Shorthand, poor or poc moms are bad moms. No matter what.

      college, and ended up staying home even though they came of age during the 70's when women had a choice.  They just did not want to juggle working and mother hood and life gave them the choice not to have to.  They stayed home and when the kids went to school, their lives became one endless set of sports activities and driving their kids everywhere their little hearts desired, it sounded awful to me but I am not them. I think the Europeans have the right balance, children are important but they do not dictate everything an adult does for 18 years as they do in the United States.
