In the news today

I was really shocked and thought it must be a typo of some sort as I read the results of a study that was conducted. It said that the average time a mother spends with her children has gone up over the last 40 years. Here was the results, in 1965 the average time a mother spent with her child was 10.5 hours A WEEK!? But that NOW in 2007 mothers spend an average of 14 hours a week with their child(ren) HUH? Are they serious how can you only spend two hours a day with your child? Even if you are a working mother surly you are around your child more than that. Thats a shame realy. I could not imagine seeing my children for such a short time as this. I am so blessed to be able to spend at least 16 hours a day with my children, which is 112 hours A WEEK. Moms you really can live on one income, please put your children and home first!

More about Passover later today.

Wow, if moms are spending only a few hours a day with their children, no wonder so many children are already winding up in prison. :-( If the mother is only spending a few hours with the child, then who is really training up the child? Ah, that would be public school and peers. :-|

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
