they see nothing wrong in wasting such an expensive training like this
Sorry - I don't get this - how it is wasted? She is still a doctor and she is bringing up the next generation - her knowledge must be enriching their growing up.
Your post sounds a little sexist to me ...
Well, yes, I would agree entirely that I am sexist, but I believe that public money should be spent carefully for the greatest good, not just to provide individual fulfilment for, well, individuals. There is not much point in her being a doctor if she isn't practising as such. I would have found it quite useful to have a medical degree myself when I was bringing up small children, given all the accidents and illnesses they used to get, but as an alternative I found it invaluable to have a full-time empathetic male GP who I could generally make an appointment to see within a day or so, and who made home visits as a matter of routine.
Tipsy, as usual, makes a very valid point, and has gone where I feared to tread, but she provides another reason why medicine is no longer a particularly attractive and respected career.
