Even though (in my opinion / legal disclaimer) Dr. Laura has behaved as a bigoted hypocrite, occasionally she preaches truth. If you’ve never listened to Dr. Laura, she’s an ultraconservative radio talk show host with a harshsauce advice delivery system. Ask your Mom. She’ll explain.
I admit it. I agree with Dr. Laura regarding the following three points:
1) Don’t marry a weak man.
Weak men = mama’s boys. Weak men = childishly obsess over internet porn. Weak men = lie. Nearly every show, Dr. Laura’s callers illustrate how weak men are the source of innumerable problems. Weak men don’t get strong.
2) Don’t marry an addict.
Addicts only care about their addiction.
3) Stay home with your kid(s) until they go to school.
Controversial, right? Can we agree that 0-5 years old are hugely formative years for a human being? Can we agree that children are at their most vulnerable to predators before they can speak or physically defend themselves? I am not a parent, but if I were and could possibly afford it, I would commit five years to my child to nurture and protect the kid during this crucial developmental period. Obviously, such a scenario is not financially feasible for every family. Regardless of income, no one is ever going to love and protect my kid like I would with such unwavering and priceless devotion.
