Our editorial last week on "Child Care Assistance Cuts" in Kentucky led to plenty of facebook discussion.
Heather responded: "This is sad. The 4C's allowed me to be a working mother…to get to a position that I no longer need assistance."
Jennifer added: "It's a vital program to help mothers to get back to work."
Nikki agreed, saying: "So you are going to cut one thing that will HELP parents work? Cut government pay – that would fix something."
And Kimberli added: "The amount of taxes I've paid since I started working at 16 is plenty enough to cover my own child care assistance….only a very small percentage of your tax goes to assistance programs and welfare."
Regarding our "Kindergarten Preparedness" editorial this week, Gina replied: "A child who starts kindergarten at age 6 always has the upper hand. Those extra few months makes a huge difference."
And Lisa added: "Parents cannot pass on skills they don't have."
