You are entitled to have your own opinion.. But I have to write this - It's high time that we stop correlating woman with her education, job, etc and labeling her as 'rebel' in case she has her own views. I feel that, a mother whether educated or not, should have freedom to say and do what she feels good for her kids.. Both father and mother should be primary decision makers..Elders can advise, but, only parents can make a final decision. If a mother depends fully on elders for child care, few elders comment "She doesn't know anything.. Everything I have to do" If she learns something from a professionaly qualifed person and does that, then she is labelled as "she isn't respecting elders and behaves as if she knows everything".
