READER'S VIEW: Stay-at-home mothers give better future

POLICE lament the lack of children supervision by mums .

I wonder why, for years, we have heard how women must become managers of banks or pubs or serve in the front line to reach their potential.

We have denigrated motherhood to a position of lesser value. Mums should be praised, not denigrated into believing they are not the highest achiever on the planet.

We will never get better value for money than we get from a stay at home mum, raising her children, bringing in the next generation of humanity.

Mums are the best hope we have for turning back the clock to when we could walk around after dark and feel safe. Coward's punch mentality did not exist when mums stayed home and raised the kids. We have always had alcohol, but never have we been so insulting to our stay at home mums. I know a child care worker who had a mum say to her "oh, she seems to love you more than me". "Of course," the worker replied, "she is with me more than you".

Mothers will decide our future. A mother can raise a child best, because a mother's love knows no restrictions. No role a woman can do will ever better her role as a mother. Science has tried for centuries to understand reproduction, mothers do it naturally. Give mothers their rightful value and they will give you a better tomorrow.
