Today, a headline in the Telegraph, "David Cameron's 'slur' on stay-at-home mothers" drew my attention. I thought that all politicians undertook 'media training' these days, but whether that's true or not, many of our elected representatives consistently have a serious problem with language and communication. Apparently, the response from David Cameron's official spokesman, when asked if the Prime Minister considered stay-at-home parents to be in lesser need of state help than working parents, reinforced the Coalition's clear priority towards “aspiration”.
Putting the debates over financial assistance to one side, I'm left wondering, as many stay-at-home parents undoubtedly will be, when their particular parental pathway ceased to include dreams and ambition.
