This paper is a response to New Safety Net Paper 3, "Family Security: Supporting Parents' Employment and Children's Development" by Shelley Waters Boots, Jennifer Macomber, and Anna Danziger. The authors have put together an interesting and timely set of policy proposals to help meet the needs of children in low-income families when parents work. Together, their proposals on child care, leave time and working hours, and comprehensive child development programs are an excellent starting point and certainly merit further consideration and discussion.
