LET­TER OF THE WEEK

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - CONTENTS - Kate Treloar Calling­ton

It both­ers me your cover ar­ti­cle The Great Ex­per­i­ment (29/1/11) only presents two op­tions for preschool­ers: for­mal child­care or mums-at-home. Where on earth are all the dads? I can’t fathom why so­ci­ety isn’t en­gag­ing men to help more in re­duc­ing kids’ child­care time. So come on fa­thers, take charge – ne­go­ti­ate some time off work each week to be with your kids. Ev­ery­body adapts their spend­ing to their earn­ings so you will cope. Be­sides, it’s only for a few years. You can work full­time later but your kids are only young for such a pre­cious short time.
