Re: The dirt on Switzerland

2. The cost of childcare. I know couples where most of the womans salary went to childcare for her two pre-school kids. Most countries make an effort to provide affordable childcare, Switzerland seems to on purpose do the opposite… so women decide to stay at home.
Many families now split their working time and their home/child-care time, i.e. both parents work, but both part-time.

Whereas a generation ago fathers went along with this traditional division of their wives staying at home while they were away from home - and their children - all day Monday to Friday, nowadays many fathers are interested in their participation in their children's days and weeks, and they are now much more inclined to assert their right to spend active parenting time, including everyday, ordinary time, with their children. Such fathers are no longer content to limit their parenting to buying an ice-cream on Saturday afternoons.
