What a kid needs is someone who irrationally loves him & cares deeply about him & is willing to sacrifice everything for him.
That's Mom and Dad.
Society has other agendas. Not the irrational overwhelming, burning, soul-wrenching, gut-twisting desire for one particular child. (Besidse dispassionate, objective assessment, they are motivated by their own self-interest separate from the child's wefare. Exhibit A: Teachers' unions.)
Society should under-gird the Moms and Dads.
