Just because something is part of family life does not necessarily mean
that it is a part of family values. For example, divorce is a part of many
family lives, but that does not mean that divorce is a part of family values.
Day care may be a pragmatic necessity for many people, but that, by itself,
does not imply that it is a part of family values.
