Child Care

Please agree that it is about time that Jamaica; in a quest to preserve the notion that children are our future as well as the notion that children are not downloaded but conceived and required personal guidance and nurturing; HENCE THERE IS A PROFOUND NEED TO INCREASE MATERNITY LEAVE FROM 2 MONTHS TO ATLEAST 6 MONTHS TO 9 MONTHS. The responsibility of caring for a child is life-changing and why should mothers, after 2 months, spend most of their time in an office and see their babies technically on the weekend? Going home every day exhausted and stressed. Isn't the first year of a child's life critical to their brain development and the need to emulate their mother's love/ basic lessons?
Why should a mother be away with full breasts which are painful for both her and a baby who is missing her and stressed? We may be a third world country; nonetheless, we ought to adapt first world strategies in our bid to preserve our future and Vision 2030
