i seriously had no idea people thought this way! so i suppose I'm not a good parent and should not be TTC since i need to put my DD in daycare over the summer for work. every summer is our major work season and in order to keep my job i must be available weekends, holidays, and any time schools are out for breaks. i work for the San Diego Zoo. during the off season i only work weekend by choicecause we can afford for me to stay home during the week to be with her. Day care used to not be an issue since her grandma watched her but now she has a job so can't. i just don't understand how putting a kid in day care makes me a bad parent our un worthy of another. even if i was home all day id want her in some kind of preschool soon.

A lot of women (particularly on here) feel that way. It's sad. Putting your child in daycare does NOT make you a bad mother. The bills aren't going to pay themselves!

Don't let the opinions of people who don't matter in your home affect you.

That's so stupid, don't listen to other people. When I was little I LOVED day care!

That's really shitty of anyone to think that way.

I wouldnt even listen to any of them, obviously these are not people who support and love you, tell them to stick it.

Daycare doesn't = bad parent. Whoever thinks that is silly and not worth your time.

That's ridiculous. DS was in daycare when I worked for five years almost. It was great for him.

Oh the opinions don't matter to me especially when it came from someone who has been living off others and has no kids but It kinda floored me at first. I was just surprised there were people who thought like that. I just had to let out my steam cause I didn't ant to say anything to her. she'd love to get a rise out of me

I agree. Bad parenting! Its ur job to take care of ur child. U dont pay someone else to watch them grow up!!!! If ur forced to put them in daycare then obviously u had them too yung to where u cant make it enough for just 1 parent to stay home! Or u slept around and got pregnant. Either way tho why do ur children have to pay for ur shitty choices?!! Hmmmn yeah think about that 1!!!!

My mom worked in a day care center when she was pregnant with my younger sister so I personally wouldn't use a day care center due to trust issues. I definitely do NOT look bad on people that do. I'm lucky enough to have a sahm that can watch my babies while I work. I know everyone else does't have that though. Day care does NOT mean you are a bad parent. It just means you are trying to give your child the best you can by working.
