I think your comment is very naive and you have little understanding of the struggles of find good quality Childcare in your area on days that match available job positions. I also don't think anyone should have to leave their child in Childcare if they find it heartbreaking to do so, which many mums do.
We do all kinds of things that we dont like because we have to its life. We cant imply have everyone doing what they want it would be a shocking world if we did.
and if a person is against the modern version of schooling they *can* home school.
I'm sorry but if you think Americas system.is so much better ( as you appear to) why don't you take him and the kids back there?

There is a difference between 'feeling sad' about leaving your child and having a 2 year old with separation anxiety scream their head off when they are left, continue to cry for the day and then as a result disrupt their behavior and sleep and in the process the mother feels like her heart is breaking and she is destroying her poor child. As I said some children do not cope in Childcare. And your point about school age children has nothing to do with my response to the PP point about her seeing nothing wrong with leaving children from around 2 years in some form of care. By school age children have matured to a different level and are able to cope with being left by their parent in much better manner.
What a horrible hypocritical mess this is;
It is extremely hard to get a job unless certain basic requirements are met, like adequate education for a start - few 'dole bludgers' have uni degrees - some are illiterate and have learning difficulties , so they in effect will be stuck in a poverty cycle for ever - either on the dole or on the lowest paying jobs.
Some do have uni degrees but are over qualified for menial tasks.
Some people are reduced to part-time hours which means they are not technically unemployed and get only limited financial assistance.
Working mothers get canned for having other people raise their children.
Some social commentators say child care is tantamount to child abuse
OSHCare places are limited so kids are often left home alone until mum and dad get home after 5
There is no OSHCare for secondary students
Latch key teen kids are at high risk of getting into trouble and also not finishing their education.
