Do you think that the Octo Mom should place the kids in daycare at least one day a week?

Octomom" Nadya Suleman (on Oprah) says she was childish for wanting to have so many children. She seems so tired... Maybe daycare could give her a day to get some sleep...What do you think?

  • I agree with Jennifer.

  • Yes, what if one day she goes even more crazy and drowns all of them...

  • i think it would be great if there were some sort of effort for someone to take all of her kids one day a week.
    how many kids does she have all together? getting 4 out of the house at a time would probably not be that big of a help, but you never know!

  • I think that about 4 of them do go to school... I know that 8 year old boy goes to school. But I was thinking about those 6 that she had all at once. Just getting them out of house... actually once a week getting EVERYBODY OUT OF THE HOUSE for a couple of hours would do her, the house and her assistants a load of good..

  • I think she needs to. That woman needs a break. I dont know how she does it.

  • I agree, she deserves a break. Just because she was foolish in her decision to have so many kids does not mean that she doesnt deserve a break. Damn, I have 2 and i need a break every once in a while, I cant imagine having as many as she does!!!!!!

  • Daycare could be good. It would give the children a chance to see a different environment and different structure. I say yes.

  • I dont see how she does it either... I only have two kids and I wonder how I do it! LOL But yes 2Tiny.. a different environment and different structure would do wonders for EVERYONE! There is nothing like a nap after taking a good bath with putting some clean sheets on your bed. She would sleep and sleep and sleep.
