Breaking News - Babies Need their Parents! (even in Quebec)

The YWCA is not going to like this: According to Globe columnist Margaret Wente, a new book, "Le bébé et l'eau du bain" (The Baby and the Bathwater) written by popular Quebec pediatrician Dr. Jean-François Chicoine actually dares to state that children under two are better off at home with their parents! Imagine the audacity of the man to even think such a thing! It is truly shocking.

"Dr. Chicoine insists he's not political. He has only one agenda: kids".

Sure, sure.. We've all heard that one before. Let me see, was it during the latest teachers' walkout, or was it from some unionized daycare representative or previous Liberal Minister? It will come to me.

If parents and baby don't have this bonding time together, Dr. Chicoine feels that the child could be at risk for all kinds of emotional problems in the future. Now really, what's he talking about? Surely parents cannot be a proper substitute for all the childcare experts that run government daycares. If they happen to forget one or two kids outside or after hours, no big deal right?

Co-author and journalist Nathalie Collard says, "But if you put a baby into daycare at two months old, why have a baby at all? It's as if staying at home with your child were a punishment.”

Why indeed? Maybe that's where the debate should begin - in the bedroom.

Another bogus study, we all know that children don't need a mother and females don't need men or dads.
The low crime rate in Government Housing proves that fatherless boys are no different from a 2 parent heterosexual marriage.

Ask David Miller, he wants more Federal handouts so more females can dump the kids with strangers and be a taxpayer to finance daycare and the Pride parade with more Grants and more studies to prove parents and dad's have no value.
Girls see that mommy doesn't need a man, and boys see how useless men are since mom doesn't have,nor need one.
Mom is married to the STATE and chained to her job while cranking out babies for future taxpayers to finance more social programs .
