CHILDCARE WORKERS WALK-OFF: and the notion of keeping one’s child at home.

Mar 23rd, 2018 by Arnold Jago in Family, Lifestyle, Women, Youth

People in the child-care industry are threatening to walk off the job if they don’t get more pay.
They are organising a “Keep Your Child at Home Day” to draw attention to their claims.
One claim is that low pay encourages high staff turnover — whereas children need continuity in order to bond with teachers.
If it’s helpful to have a one-off “keep child at home day”, may it do even more good to keep children at home every day?
Bonding with one’s mum seven days a week would give excellent continuity.
In today’s society, many people feel they can’t afford that.
Perhaps our society needs changing so that we can afford it?
First up, we need to ask ourselves do we really want to make the change?
If not, why not?
