    If you read the actual original article it was Plato's idea in breaking up the family and Aristotle who disagreed the premise. These were ancient philosophers rather than modern left / right politicians in the society that gave us democracy. It would also have been the times where different Greek republics were famed for bringing their kids (nee Soldiers) and citizens up differently.

    The article is about two modern philosophers debating the original (2000+ year old idea / argument)

    Who employs someone to clean their house 40 hrs a week? Where are they living, a 60,000 sq foot pig sty? People usually have a maid come in once a week or every two weeks for a few hours. Unless they are very wealthy...even if they are hiring illegals.

    Not the most well-thought out idea that was proposed there.

    Btw, it sounds like you are underpaid.

    Re: Bedtime reading could disadvantage other children, academic says

    If reading bedtime stories is advantageous, then what is stopping other parents from reading stories to their children too?

    Why be pulled down to a disadvantaged group when the disadvantaged group could be pulled up to the advantaged group.

    Cost of stories should not be an issue. They can find them in the internet for instance.

    Uhm, what do you think? Is "unfairly" advantaging their children something parents should even concern themselves with or feel bad about? According to the article, it is.
    And this guy is an "academic"!

    Re: Bedtime reading could disadvantage other children, academic says

    The federal govt will have cameras in your children's bedrooms to make sure you're not reading them any books. In fact they'll hire their own professional readers to send the reading of stories to the children right into their bedrooms via TV. Every child should be read to by a govt reader. Its only fair, and think of the children.

    You see. You don't do it either. Why should others?
