Time for Parenting...

...because raising children is a full-time job

Do you agree that parents who choose to look after their children themselves deserve a better deal from government?

Do you think infants need to bond with one special person who provides consistent, loving care in order to grow into confident, fulfilled young adults?

Do you agree that mothers make a unique contribution to raising their children, which should be recognised and rewarded for its irreplaceable value to society?

Are you tired of seeing your family's taxes diverted towards encouraging more childcare and absentee parenting?

If you're already back in work, are you struggling to find time for your children because of the pressures of holding down a job?

Do you feel deprived of choice in child care?

If you can answer YES to any of the above, PLEASE JOIN US. We are trying to change things so that parents get a real chance to be parents - not just workers outside the home. We need your voice if we are to be heard.

Here's a glimpse on a regular day of full-time mom:

Time for Parenting is an initiative of Full Time Mothers (FTM). FTM was founded in 1990 by parents concerned about the relentless drive to get all mothers into paid employment outside the home and all children into third party childcare.
