Working Mother Report Shocks Writer

In an article for CNN, digital correspondent Kelly Wallace, the mother of two, said she was shocked by the findings of a report by Working Mother Media: "I was fairly blown away when I read one of the top findings of a new report by Working Mother Media, which examined the attitudes of millennials (born 1981 to 2000), Generation Xers (1965 to 1980) and baby boomers (1946 to 1964). Millennials scored highest, over Gen Xers and baby boomers, when asked whether they believe one parent should stay home to care for the children: Sixty percent of millennials said yes, vs. 55% for boomers and 50% for Gen Xers. What? Are we moving in the wrong direction here, ladies? Are we harkening back to an "Ozzie and Harriet" time when mom stayed at home, dad worked, and that was the complete family story?" More here.

Question: Do you believe one parent should stay at home and care for the children?
