Faced with a crisis during the union goon teachers strike, one “stay-at-home mom” panics.
Patricia Jones, 32, arrived at Mays Elementary Academy, 838 W. Marquette, with her 6-year-old daughter as the half-day program was ending.
“I didn’t even know they were going to have these programs until today, so I didn’t sign her up over the weekend like they said to do,” said Jones, a stay-at-home mom. “There’s no way I can have her at home all day. I don’t even know how long this strike’s going to last. If they’re full, I’m going to have to find something for her, anything, because there’s no way I can keep this little girl busy enough.”
Now there’s a dedicated “stay-at-home mom.” OK, so with months of warning, she didn’t know about any programs, so she didn’t sign up … like they said to do. Then she’s a “stay-at-home mom” who cannot have her child home all day and admits there’s “no way” she can occupy her child.
Now this here is “Mother of the Year” material.
Can’t we get a government program to help her out? How can we possibly be so inhumane as to ask a “stay-at-home mom” to watch her kid for a whole day? Maybe we can have Michelle Obama stop by and offer some key parenting and diet tips and they can go out in the community and help organize things. For the children.
