Just to throw a few things out there to talk about. First off we had the woman who wanted time off work every day to breast feed her baby. Her boss obviously said no. That she either came to work to actually do some work or to stay at home with the baby. Mixed opinions from callers. Most agreeing with the boss. Her just walking out of work at various times of the day to breast feed a baby was not on at all. Then we had the female brigade who were saying it is a woman's right to be allowed breast feed her baby and the boss should be made comply. You can all talk about this one first.
Then we had this thing of people demanding free childcare whilst they worked. Not sure how it works in the States or even the UK. In other words, have a baby and go back to work and have the baby raised for you for free. But they are also asking for more time off work when they have a baby. Now the father is even getting time off work. To make it look equal and all of that. The mother needs help and can't do it all alone. Baffled me is wondering why she wants more time off work then? Paid time at that. Then back to her job. Add in the story above to this. Her child will then be looked after for free.
Thing here is, you give them one thing and they ask for more. Give them more and they want even more. I agree that parents need bonding time with a new baby. But how far do we take this? Did hear of a story once of a woman wanting to bring her new born baby to work with her. Wanted a special room to change diapers and feed the baby. Just a little bit too far in my opinion.
