Haro: A Swedish organization of mothers. "Swedish family policies have dislocated the natural human balance. This has involved a steering towards a one-way lifestyle model for parents, employment and daycare. This is unfortunate since it does not correspond to all parents’ visions of what parenthood should mean....Only the parents themselves can decide how much time should be dedicated to maintain and strengthen the bonds between them and their children. Parents must be given financial means and support to bring up their children according to their own beliefs."
