FoxNews released an article in which they describe how one year of daycare is more expensive than one year of public college in 36 states. In some states, daycare for one child is said to be in the range of $18,000 per year, per child. That cost does not include the damage done to the child -- the emotional trauma the child faces when it is ripped away from its mother and rent-a-mom steps in.

I know there are cases where a single mom has to work. However, I would venture to say that the overwhelming majority of daycare kids are the result of parents who are more interested in their career or their lifestyle than the care of the kids.

Of course, there is God's plan. No one is brave enough to admit it, but we all know what it is!
Titus 2:3-5 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; (4) That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, (5) To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Notice how God describes this behavior as holy. These are some of the things God wants a woman to do to be holy: to be discreet, chaste and keepers at home. God didn't say that the ladies should be the bread-winner, God wants the chaste, holy ladies to be at home. You know what? If the ladies are at home, there's no daycare expense. Not only is there no daycare expense, there is no separation trauma for the kids!

As an extra, added bonus, if mom is home with the kids, she can also be a teacher of good things to her children. If mom isn't at home, who's teaching the kids (and what are they being taught)?
