Tara believes that Ayelet is doing a disservice to her family.

Tara: I think that children are such a gift, and I think that there is a healthy balance that can be formed with the family, not necessarily putting one above the other, per se.

Ayelet: I absolutely agree. I think that's a really good point, and I think that is sort of the point of my article—which is that I think we've, as a society, we've kind of lost that balance. So many women today have become so focused on their children, they've developed these romantic entanglements with their children's lives, and the husbands are secondary. They're left out. And the romantic focus is on the children. I mean, you guys know Valentine's Day at your kids' schools. What happens on Valentine's Day? All the moms come in with perfectly frosted pink cupcakes that they've made with their kids. Well, what's Valentine's Day? Is Valentine's Day a day to make cupcakes with your children? No, Valentine's is supposed to be a day about romantic love.
