A poster, who I won't name because the thread is in plain site, brought up the question of day care and what it's doing to our kids. The topic was ignored because of the way that poster handles things, but Rufus pointed out that the topic is of value. So what do you think about day care? What do you think it's doing to society? How should we as Christians be helping each other out when our brothers and sisters need to work and have wee ones? One of my posts on the other thread: Personally, my husband and I made the decision that I would stay home while the kids were little. I had 8 glorious years at home from the time the first one was born until the time the second one went to kindergarten. I don't think (based on my personality) that I could have done it much longer though! I also had friends that stayed home their 6 weeks and found childcare (not daycare - childcare) and their kids are wonderful! They are great parents, spend tons of time with them, invest much of themselves in the activities they are involved in. Most of my friends were in this category and as I said, their kids turned out great. ------------------------ Part of the problem is that there aren't enough adults staying home to take care of all the kids of all the working parents. What's the solution?
