What a wonderful site! I wish more
people would read it before they leave their children in the arms (or on the
floor near) total strangers every day!
I think we can owe a lot of our problems in this world today to daycares...
Children need love and affection, kisses and hugs, their special someone
(mom or dad) their with them, especially when they are brand new to this
A little baby needs to be in his mother's arms, not in a crib at daycare with
a bottle in his mouth at six weeks old.
Thanks again - your site is great,

Snappy response by "WI MOM" to an
unmarried Massachusetts couple thinking of having a baby, but concerned
about the cost of child care:
"Financial aid for child care? It is not the job of government (or
taxpayers) to fund your lifestyle choices.
Buy a dog. Kids don't deserve to be dumped in daycare."

"Re: Daycare information"
Thank you for your website... I have
recently been getting a lot of pressure from other (people to work outside
the home), but I’ve done the math – any income I earn (even well above
minimum wage) would go entirely to daycare expenses. Nobody seems to
understand this fact, even after I clearly explain it to them. It just
doesn’t make sense to me to pay someone else to raise my children for ten
hours a day so I can have exactly the same amount of money at the end of the
month. What purpose would that serve?

Love the site. (Heard about it on Dr.
Laura just now.)
Day care is child abuse.
... A family's job is to raise the next generation, not earn money to hire
strangers to provide kids sub par care.
Separating ... millions of mothers from their children is mass insanity, and
I can't imagine how much evil has resulted from developed nations' misguided
belief that day care is acceptable.

I am so glad that you are getting the
message out there. I have two children, ages 2 years and six months, and I
have never put them in daycare, nor would I. I wanted to let you know (and
please feel free to post this to your site) that just because you're a
single mum, you DON'T have to place your kids in daycare. There are always
alternatives. State aid to single mums often cuts off at 6 months unless you
put your infant in daycare. Mine did. Fortunately, I was able to find a way
to work from home. I work at night and spend my days caring for my children,
as it should be. If you're a college-bound single mum, many colleges will
let you take online courses or night classes; if you take night classes on a
part-time schedule, that's only one or two nights a week that you need to
leave your child with a babysitter, and most grandmothers would be happy to
step up and help.

Thank you for this wonderful site. Most
certainly the information contained here validates my decision to stay home
and raise my daughter. It's inconceivable that I could ever simply drop off
my interesting, cuddly, curious child into the "care" of strangers. I'm the
lone SAHM in my group of four mom-friends...

"Thank you for speaking out about this"
Children in day care become more
aggressive and are very ill very frequently. I have seen it first hand with
some of the parents I know.
Thank you for creating a website that speaks the truth about the day care
situation in America. It’s out of control, and extraordinarily sad.
