them one can discover a true and deepnjoy far more enduring than happiness.nFull-time mothers are the key to thensurvival of the traditional family innAmerica. The very nature of their “uncompensated”njobs makes them an endangerednspecies in our affluent nationnand an anachronism among a people hellbentnon “finding themselves.” At-homenmothers and children both deserve muchnmore thoughtful treatment than that accordednthem by Mrs. Waite. DnMrs. Waite Replies:nWhile Mrs. Werner makes some interestingnobservations, she has (A) missednthe point of my piece and ( B ) simplifiednmotherhood to a degree that overlooksnnot only its delicate nuances, but also annobvious state of af&irs. Her constant referralnto the child as an “infent” or “baby”nleaves the impression that she is a lairlynnew member of the Society of Motherhood.nShe seems oblivious to the factnthat the term child also encompasses 7-,nH-, and 16-year-olds, as a more seasonednmother can readily attest. Some of thesenchildren, dependent on age and degreenof maturity, are well able to take care ofnthemselves for varying periods of timenand do not need to be constantly coddled,nnor do they regularly coo.nThe responsibility of being a mothernnever ends; as I stated before, it is “ancareer spanning a lifetime.” However,nresponsibility is not the same as parentalncontrol. As parents, our most importantnfunction is to instill in our children a setnof principles and sense of decency. Asntime diminishes control, we must trustnour children to draw on what we havenworked so hard to teach. The constandyn”mothered” child is not always a “better”nchild.nMrs. Werner states that motherhoodnis to be “enjoyed and relished,” and Inquite agree. However, the fact remainsnthat not all women will agree, for the actnof giving birth insures that a woman is anmother only in a biological sense.
