    When my children were born I stayed with them, and when my youngest were a year old my aunt would baby sit. And my husband and I worked. I worked part time. And I would let my inlaws watch them while I worked some times. I never took them to a day care.

      Well, good for you. You were lucky to have family all around you. Some people don't have that privilege. There is nothing wrong in using Day Care as long as you make some background checks about them.

      What would you have done if your Aunt and Inlaws were not there and your hubby was working in Honolulu? Taken the baby to work? smile

    I myself wouldn't use Day Care myself I prefer Preschool and am definitely going to put my children in Preschool once they are old enough. But glad you had so much help from family.

    Well my oldest two my mother babysit for me, but when my third one came along I think she had enough of dealing with children all day so my youngest attends the daycare center were I happen to work, and she watches the oldest two after they get out of school.

    one of my kids went to preschool 2 years before public school and the other stayed home because of a birth defect.My child that stayed home was smarter.The one that went to preschool 2 years had to receive tutoring in second grade.So I would say it depends on the program and the teachers

    Thats the advantage of family. Personally, I prefer that my children be with either parent's care or with their grandparents. Anyone else is asking too much unless I am willing to pay for their services. This way I can easily ask about the child's care throughout the day. And, I can expect without guilt that certain services are rendered for the cost.

    Its great that you were able to invest in your children through family. There many things that become part of who we are based on our experiences with family. There is only so much you can learn through school. Many of us are quite fortunate to have family available to help us with our child rearing.
