Mom's a threat?

From Al Mohler's program:
Apparently a feminist Linda Hirschman (sp?) appeared on Good Morning America (yesterday?), claiming that stay-at-home moms are a threat to civilization. "An educated, competent adult’s place is in the office." She challenged the idea that full-time motherhood is hard and fulfilling work, saying she finds most of the online diaries she reads of moms' daily activities "uninteresting."

Mohler responds well, noting that it's a wonderful use of education to pour it into our children, noting the hard work it takes to be a mom, all you need to know and do. I didn't hear the whole program, but I would go further and say that stay-at-home moms are not a threat, but a critical pillar of, civilization.

Hmm. Mohler handles it much better than Dobson did, as I caught the latter's program on the way to the office. He just railed against the devaluing of flag, mom and apple pie, and then he aired Mohler!


  1. Glad to hear Mohler does motherhood justice.

    "An educated, competent adult's place is in the office." - My years of office experience were much less challenging to the mind than motherhood.

    Not to mention this mom could out-arm wrestle Hirschman any day. My three year old could, too.

  2. Mohler had a commentary on this back in February. It can be read at Are Stay at Home Moms “Letting Down the Team?”

    All I can say is as a Dad who has his office at home and my wife being a stay at home Mom, our hands are full with Justin and he is only 8 months. Once home schooling starts, it will be a full time job.
