State of the Union

I am glad to hear the discussion of the need for affordable day care.  I have been screaming about this for years.  The family structure is falling apart due to low wages , increased cost of living, the need of both parents to work to get by.  This is also related to the type of jobs families are relying on to support themselves.  Working at retail stores and fast food restaurants is not enough to live off of. Parents are forced to work more hours while at the same time trying to raise their children.  Our youth are being affected by this parental absenteeism.  We are relying too much on public schools to raise our children.   We need to crack the whip at big corporations, bring jobs back to America, allow families to rely on one parents earnings, and get back to raising our kids at home. Oh and a civics class or two won't hurt either.
