Not at all Mr Barnz. What annoyed me was people whinging about it.
Us older folk already subsidise child care with our taxes, and Mrs Fox and I kick in for our Grandkids. I do understand that both parents may need or want to work, so they need to farm out the kids, but why complain when it is your own choice.
Neighbours across the road from us own a local child care centre. They may make lots of money, but it doesn’t show up in their lifestyle. I know they both work from 6 am to 8 pm, and seem to work very hard.
And while I am having another rant, I live next door to a primary school that runs pre-school and after school care. They open at 6 am and close about 7 pm. I am also part of a local program they provides breakfast for children at our primary school every day of the week and two days a week at the high school. Many kids get no food all day otherwise.
I have no solutions, but our society is heading in the wrong direction if parenting if left to others.
