A good emotional issue and so all have put emotional points, I think.Yes it is good to spend more time with children.Do not the parents know this? They know ,but they couldn't .With much pain only they leave them in creche or with caretaker.In this time one earning would not do for the family.So both the father and mother have to go to job they get .
What is the solution?In every working place there should be a creche.There is an order to this effect by women's commission , but who cares for it.Next mother sentiment -it is ,if deeply thinking , a trick of men to let the job of taking care of their wards to their wives. If gents seriously feel this they should share the burden of housing works and caring for children.Then this problem would not raise.'Theiva thirumagan' has done a good job in this aspect.It has a message that father can be a 'mother' if they really feel of it. We are letting some burden in the word 'mother' only sentimentally .If fathers do all the jobs related to mother except feeding,as their physical fitness, all fathers can be mothers
