Staying at home with the baby vs. Returning to Work: a skewed perspective

This is an article from that discusses the pros (great for baby) and cons (mom gets lonely) of staying at home with the baby. Nothing was mentioned about the benefits the children get from going to daycare. The unspoken message of the article is that moms who return to work are selfish.

It mentions a stay-at-home mom of 24 years and seven children who is on the board of a non-profit "Mothers at Home" - an organization encouraging women to stay home with their kids. Strangely enough, they didn't interview the president of "Abandon your child and go to work" organization.

I have only one question: When the board of "Mothers at Home" convenes, who watches the poor unloved abandoned children of its members?
