Quote of the Day: On welfare, parenting and the 30-million word gap


“Ironically one of the reasons the DPB was introduced was to allow sole mothers more time with their children. To reduce their stress and enable better parenting. Today it is known that maternal depression, welfare dependence and low literacy are all associated.”
~ Lindsay Mitchell on The genesis of the DPB and "The 30-million word gap"
