I've been scratching my head this morning - again. I'm quite often perplexed, baffled or incredulous -- and this is very likely to have been brought on by news of yet another survey connected with working mums. According to the media, you could think of many of society's ills and you would have to look no further than a mother attempting to hold down a job as well as raise a child for the cause.
Obesity, rioting, laziness, you name it, there's probably a poll somewhere that says working mothers (especially single ones of course) are to blame. There's no mention of the dad of the household. Perhaps he is completely oblivious or blame-free, who knows? Whatever the reason, the papers don't tend to mention him, whether he has scarpered or not.
