Loser of the Week award.......

Linda Hirshman needs to keep her ideas to herself! Linda R. Hirshman retired as the Allen/Berenson Distinguished Visiting Professor at Brandeis University. She is at work on a book about marriage after feminism. With almost no effort, she landed spot No. 77 on Bernard Goldberg's "100 People Who Are Screwing Up America." I guess if all of the educated women decide to stay at home and raise their children Linda Hirshman won't have a job! Read her crazy views here. Hirshman called the life of the stay-at-home mom "unfulfilling." Maybe for her, but who is she to decide for other women. I thought that was the beauty of feminism--that women could decide what was best for them. James Dobson and Al Mohler are speaking out against her stupidity. Good for them! Read about it here. If a woman decides to work, that is her choice and I respect it. But the same should be for the woman who decides to stay at home and raise her children. Some women have no choice but to work. My wife has decided to stay home. I didn't tell her to do it. She feels that is what God wants her to do. Cassandra is a beautiful woman inside and out. She has a college degree. She worked and put me through Seminary. She even worked for after our son was born. Thankfully we found a way to allow her to stay home. She homeschools our two children. She is active in our ministry. She gets weary. But she feels this is her calling. I support her. I get angry when people like Linda Hirshman say what Cassandra and other stay-at-home moms do is unfulfilling. How does Linda Hirshman know? I stayed home half a day when our son was born because Cassandra was working so I could finish Seminary. I can tell you that was hard. I respect anyone, male or female who stays home to raise their children. I respect the working mothers too. No one especially Linda Hirshman should decide what is best for every family.

Kevin,

Well said. I agree 100%.

The sad thing is when thinking like hers begins to creep into the church and you hear talk like that coming from "believers."

My wife is a teacher who stayed home with the kids until they were old enough for school. After Hannah, our youngest went to Kindergarten, she went back to the classroom.

The kids around ours are often ill behaved and lack depth in their faith. Our kids are respectful, kind, compassionate and are very spiritually attuned for their age.

I lay all of it at her feet. She was with them providing a nurturing and spiritually significant environment while they were very young.

Creating wholesome, well rounded, well grounded kids - that's unfulfilling? Chasing money while your kids grow up without values - so in essence they reproduce your lack of values - that's fulfilling?

Please...
