LETTER OF THE WEEK
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.
