Ladies, can you please stop having children if the moment they become too troublesome you pack them up and send them off to daycare? Why do you even bother going through the excruciating process of getting pregnant, carrying a child for 10 months, going through labor and delivery, and the insane fourth trimester if you're just going to pack that kid's bags the moment he or she is no longer entertaining enough for you. There are plenty of reasons why sending your kid to daycare is selfish, but the biggest reason of all lies in this very simple question: why did you even bother having a kid in the first place, if all you wanted to do all day is go to work and come home after your child's bedtime?
I see selfish mothers everywhere. I work with about five of them, too. These people, walking around the office, talking about their kids like they love them, working in order to put a roof over their children's heads and food in their growing stomachs, showing their pictures to anyone who's willing to look, pretending they can't wait to see their kids when they get home, are just so incredibly blind to their egotism. Do they realize we have mandatory paid family leave in this country? (Oh wait, we don't?) Don't they know the gender wage gap isn't a thing? (Oh wait, it is?) Don't they know women should stay at home with their children and cook and clean and never work outside their house a day in their entire life? (Oh wait, it's not 1952 anymore?) Do they not realize that sending kids to daycare is not only selfish, but it's also cruel?
These Millennials (and of course they are Millennials) are popping out kids left and right, then suddenly flabbergasted when they realize they actually have to take care of their children. Isn't that something? So listen up moms, because putting your innocent baby in a germ-infested, snot-ridden, sticky-hands-crawling, stranger-swarming building far away from all the baby knows and loves is selfish. And it's mean. And you should be better parents. But in case you're still skeptical about what makes this delusional decision selfish, let me break it down for you.
