  • I know my child isn't. when he was in daycare for 6 months I was told he was the most well behavied and kind child they have ever met. I now watch kids for a living cause I didn't like the idea of someone else raising MY child. And I recently got a child that is a NIGHTMARE, daycare his whole life. mom and dad too busy to reinforce rules and boundries. he's a mess! and out right mean, bully of a child

  • Not always...SAHM's can spank. Kids at Daycare get by with murder.

  • I don't think staying home or going to daycare has anything to do with whether a child is spoiled or not.

  • NO

    Depends on the parents.....

  • From families I know, that comparison doesn't mean a thing. What's most spoiling for kids in families I know is if they're a single child or not. Most single kids I know are more spoiled to make up for not having the routine company of siblings.

  • It definitely doesn't make any difference.

  • depends on the day, the kid, the moods and all the rest of the factors.

    when MOMMY's in a BAD mood....everyone suffers. if a dayhome/care provider is in a bad mood - tough luck its your job.
