    Daycare, paid maternity leave: Why US is still bad for working parents

    My wife is a stay at home mom. With daycare north of $1200/mo, and her on a teacher's salary, it made no sense to pay such an amount to have someone else raise our children. Maybe the traditional way of things is the best way of doing this?
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I think the US has some catching up to do.

    If by 'traditional' you mean the once more common GODLY ways, then yes.
    The modern ways for about a century now seem clearly like they were designed to destroy families and Godly values.
