Parenting is EZ

Lileks is PISSED!
I heard a fascinating interview on the Medved show this week with a droning professor who lamented the failure of feminism to drive more women out of the house. She’d done a study of high-achieving women whose marriage notices were printed in the New York Times, and found that several years out, almost half had quit their jobs to stay home with the kids. Apparently they hadn’t internalized the New Truths, the Blazing Facts, the Glorious Realization that the highest calling in life is to sit in a veal pen on the 34th floor of a Manhattan skyscraper and type up depositions while Consuela teaches your children how to write their ABCs.

It takes at least 1 and 1/3 of a parent to effectively raise at least 1 child (per the experience of the Wife and I) so this rant is right up our alley. I would love to stay home with the kids, but we are trapped in our veal pens so we can pay for their private schooling ... ghaaa!
