You know, Peggy O'Mara wrote a very interesting thing on the chat this week. The discussion/question was working outside the home and the harm to young children. She said with severe seperation from mother before age 3, you get psychosis (in the child). Before age 5, you get neurosis.

Quote: "Mothering will never get the respect it deserves until all mothers learn to respect one another. It's a plain and simple fact."- Laura I do not respect all mothers. Or fathers. Uncles, aunts, grandparents, sisters, brothers. Simply because someone has a child/got pregnant/adopted doesn't earn my respect. I don't respect all animals because they have offspring, either. Procreation doesn't make someone respect worthy. There are many...
