ABSTRACT
LAURA PERRINS (Mail) is to be congratulated in highlighting the problems stay-at-home mothers have with governments who appear to see their contribution as worthless. I stayed at home for ten years to bring up my five children in the Eighties. I lost ten years' State pension because of my desire not to leave my children in the hands of strangers. At the time, I understood that my husband's National Insurance contributions would make up the shortfall, but as he then divorced me and I can't claim on my second husband's contributions, I'm left much worse off.

    SO, one in five mothers feel judged for being a 'stay-at-home mum' or 'working mum' (Mail, September 2). So that's pretty much all mums, except grannies. Women judge women... really?
