I notice a theme from many of the working women blaming the government or corporate America for not providing enough incentives to be a stay-at-home mom or providing longer maternity leave. For all of you who have chosen to have kids on your own or walk away from a marriage because you have gotten bored, explain to me why corporations or my tax dollars should assist you in your attempt at having it all?

Not that I’ve done it or would do it, but I can think of a dandy reason:  because if they don’t, they will have to go elsewhere for human capital.
