Kelly argues: Girls play with dolls from childhood, so “women are raised from the get-go to raise children successfully. When we are moms, we have a better toolbox.”
Ummm...in her house maybe.

Despite a brief stint with Barbies, I was always a legos/blocks/stuffed stuffed animals kind of gal, and never played with dolls. I built huge structures and plazas for my stuffed friends to inhabit. Set me up a treat to be an architect and engineer, it did.

Nothing wrong with playing with dolls, or being a mom. Just don't go into hundreds of thousands of dollars of student loan debt to be a SAHM. That's just foolish.
