You're changing the goalpost around as well missing the point. Obviously, mothers carefully raising their children with attention, discipline, time and love helps the child. The early years are extremely important for human development. However, that doesn't mean that women has to stay home forever, nor that it is the most important factor out of all the factors. You can be a stay at home/unemployed at be a terrible mother, as well as you can be working and a great one. Khabib, and this thread, was about women staying home throughout their life and not joining the workforce. It's about demeaning women and removing their autonomy against their will. Which is what I am saying is nonsense. When measuring the complexity of a society, women in the workforce has a lot of benefits. With that said it's important to give some time for parents, and especially mothers, to be close to their child in early development. The two are not mutually excluse and thankfully your stoneage ways are going to the wayside. Well, actually that's not true because hunter gatherers had equal gender rights and distribution as far responsibilites and work goes (for the most part).
