As for being emotionally detached from our toddler children, with both parents being actively encouraged by the govt to return to work quickly and hand kids over to child care professions from sometimes 7am-6pm until they join full time education at four, it comes as no surprise really that along the way there are some casualties.

The article annoyed me. Another pop at parenting, no wonder this generation of parents biggest problem is the burden of guilt. Too much involvement makes us helicopters or vicarious living through our DC. Not enough and we are neglectful and produce disobedient offspring. Give us a break
