>Modern proverbs – working mother bashing is a national sport

That irrespective of the fact that most children have two parents when the media get hold of any report suggesting that today’s children are fat / illiterate / rude / [fill in own blank] that this is put firmly at the door of the working mother not the working father.
Why, why why? If both parents work then both parents have taken a responsibility for the decision to put their child into some form of childcare? Surely both of them are not there during those critical daytime hours? Surely both are selfishly going out and earning money to pay the mortgage? Surely both benefit from the ability to go to the loo a few days a week with the door shut and nobody asking for a commentary on the process?
But no, its only the females that are derided for working, irrespective of whether they are the main breadwinner or not. And they say sexism is dead.

A proverb (from the Latin proverbium), also called a byword or nayword, is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity.
