I heard about this type of program in France that pays working mothers to stay home to raise their children. I guess the idea is that it will raise well-rounded children who have plenty of family interaction. My question is, should this be something that should or could be implemented in the states? Is this a good idea or is there too many obstacles? Could this be something that could potentially take alot of government funding away from the traditional welfare system? If implemented, would this be something that would apply strictly to working mothers and not welfare recipients? I've thought about this type of program for a while now but just thought I'd get your ideas...At least generate a decent discussion.
