Remembering the Children

Apparently, a new strain of thought is emerging among feminists, to the effect that they should more actively tell women who have chosen to leave the workforce that they are making the "wrong" decision. Cathy Young discusses it here.

What's interesting about both the theory and the linked article (perhaps because of space constraints) is its emphasis on adults -- what makes them happy and fulfilled -- and scarcely a mention of the children. Doesn't having at least one stay-at-home parent make them happy and fulfilled? And shouldn't that count for something?
