You are being too nice to a snipe. Tell her where to go. The mom who wrote this article is 'fantastic'. She has done a lot of work on this article. It is well written, well researched and she has obviously thought a lot about the topic and structured her article accordingly. Some posters are right, a pic here and there of a grandmother or grand pa or a younger sibling with bub in a sling might be more PC and also not to use the guys for the 'wrong way to hold the baby' is a good move.
I think it is just jealousy on the part of someone who really is simply a troll and wants to tear down a very good article for no reason. Criticism must be constructive. If criticism is not constructive, then it is destructive. Have a lovely day.

Actually it was an informative article and extremely well researched.The author has gone to a lot of trouble to explain her ideas and support them with evidence. I think you are overly harsh. What may not be interesting or informative for you, maybe for someone else who is interested.
If you know so much, write your own article refuting this or just be quiet and go away somewhere else. There is no need for this callous, pathetic comment. Your editing skills need to improve too.
'Another therapists who is paid for selling a product.' Does that make sense or were you just so eager JinL to rip down this author you could not care about correct expression or grammar.
Take you negativity elsewhere. Great article and well set out. Loved it.
I have never said that I was intelligent, in fact quite the opposite. If I was as smart as you say 'I think I purport to be' I would be in a lot better financial and social situation than I currently am. In fact, some would say I am quite stupid. Only the fact I have had a lot more reading and writing practice than most people saves me from a state of complete moronic turpitude. I would never say that 'I am intelligent' rather just an average person who practises things a lot and always tries to do her best in all things, but Intelligent?? Not really.
I am not the one who stereotypes and from your rather defensive post, I would suggest that what I wrote hit a sore spot. Shabbat shalom!

Well, well, for all those secular people out to stereotype the Adassniks as weirdos wearing white socks, long peyos, black caftans with dead squirrels perched on their heads and repressed women who bear child after child this must come as a real surprise.
Often secular Jews I have 'debated' with about the real pluses of the close knit Hardin communities like Adassniks fail to see the real face of the community. Because tha Adass lifestyle is so different to the ego ridden, self centred 'freedom' of contemporary lifestyles where each individual is out to grab as much for him or herself in as little time as possible they often forget about family and community values or do not even know what they are. Kol hakavod to the writer and hopefully it will be an eye opener for some of the less religious brethren and increase their tolerance of those who do believe in a strong moral and community stance.
Yes, Levi I would have to say your 'best' anti Semites are usually not red neck drunks. They are actually quite educated, but misguided and extremely toxic.

The key point is that assistance goes to middle income professionals - well paid. A group I belonged to around six years ago when I was on a teaching salary of around $75,000 per annum and currently I would receive around $84,700 on the salary step 13 which is top of the ladder for Five year trained teachers. However after six years of virtual unemployment except for 9 months on a meagre $69,000 last year and penniless because I had to drop a court case with the NSW Department of Education and technically homeless at present with my nine year old who I would like to see in a Jewish school but he has his own set of problems caused by factors largely outside my control I cannot see the worth I a parent (single) such as myself applying for a grant like this unless of course I get stable long term work at least at an annual salary of say $78,000 minimum per annum. You see you are not just talking financial situation but lifestyle etc. my whole outlook on living has been radically changed by what I have undergone through being bullied - plus the level of confidence in myself and my own abilities and also that of my child.
Personally I think private school education is great but needs to be for those in the $80,000 plus a year bracket to realistically afford it. Yes, I would like to one day be back in close to the $100,000 a year and then I will look at private Jewish school education for my son.
