Dear Dr. Laura,
I listen to your show every day and almost always love what you say. Sometimes I wish you would say more to certain people, but I know there's only so much time to get the point across.
I ordered 20 copies of your book "In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms". I plan on giving them to women I know with kidlits who they stick in day care. I'm trying to save the world, one mom at a time. Haha. We have to do what we can, right?
I'm 63 and have four grown-up children now. I'm sad to say I worked during the first few years of my two oldest children's lives. Then their father and I worked out a system and for the next two, we split shifts so one took care of them in the morning while the other would be with them in the afternoon. I was very fortunate to have had a job that allowed me that. Still, if I had it to do all over, I would have done anything necessary to have been able to stay home with the first two all day.
Thanks so much for every good message you pass on to your public. Hoping for a better world.
