Hi again Richard, and welcome back to Just Answer!If you are looking for an opinion, I am a mother and a teacher and I agree with your thinking. It is very important for mothers to be with their young infants and toddlers full-time, until they start school; however, the reason many mothers are not able to do this, is that they need to work in order to make ends meet for their family. An alternative to this, is making sure that the baby/child is cared for by a very experienced and able caregiver and that the mother spends a great deal of quality time with the child when she is not working. In this way, the child will not feel neglected and will get all the mental and emotional stimulation from the caregiver and the mom and grow up to be a well-adjusted, intelligent adult.
