Should Women Be Barefoot, Pregnant & In The Kitchen?


Have equal rights for women literally destroyed the balance in modern day relationships?

What is the difference between present day society and from our society 40 years ago? Why are there so many divorces, broken homes, and single parents today as opposed to yesterday? What is the one variable in a relationship that has changed from that period until now? Women.

Women have too many choices like the proverbial Eve in the Garden of Eden. Equal rights have gone to women’s heads, the single factor that has changed drastically over the past 40 years. Men are still the same, trudging along through life as they had before, to bring home the bacon and take care of their families. On the other hand women have become more like men instead of the nurturing mothers they were years ago. Women are confused. They do not know if they want to be bosses or mothers. You cannot serve two masters. Something has to suffer. 

Women in America are in conflict with themselves because they have been granted the opportunity to do whatever they desire. Many choose to be like men and bring home the money. So if both parents are working, who is raising the children and giving them the love, hugs and kisses they need? That chore is left to babysitting factories and television programs that are too advanced for even young adults to follow.

Where is the love of our mothers and grandmothers of yesterday?


Many women do not want to or even know how to cook these days. There is no love in the fast food we eat. Remember the old saying, “You are what you eat?” If there is no love in the food we are growing up eating, how can there be love in us and in our hearts? It is something about that image of grandma making freshly baked chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen that makes you smile and warms your heart. Not only did they taste good, but they left a lifetime impression. You could feel the love grandma put into her special batch.

Babysitters / Daycare

Putting your child in daycare is not the optimal way to input love into the hearts and minds of children. True, you have your exceptions to the rule, but modern daycare facilities are more about the money than it is about instilling love, and good values into the children. All you have to do is look at the results of today’s society compared to yesterday’s results and ask yourself as we build more jails, have we become a better society?
