As a stay at home mom I find it so frustrating and pathetic to see other stay at home moms sending their kids to "school" at like ages 1-3. I see people posting about droping the kids off to school all day. Seriously people, that is not school that is daycare. If you are staying home your kids should be home with you.

I am going to go against the grain and agree with you. I was home with my children for 7 years and I wouldn't have changed it.

That being said, if the mother is that willing to drop them off then they probably aren't doing what they need to be doing to help the child grow and thrive. So it might be for the best.

I have a feeling that a number of them are actually better off there than at home.

I am a stay at home mom, but DS goes to a special needs preschool through our public school system two days a week. He gets speech and occupational therapy, and his teacher specializes in behavior modification.

I would have no problem with him staying home every day, but he NEEDS this to help prepare him for mainstream school. He is 4 by the way.

I can admit I thought about putting my son into a day care/ or preschool class for the social parts of it. Because he is an only child, and there are no other children his age close to us, (Or that were his age, he's seven now) But When I looked into it, I was thinking maybe twice a week. 


Then Finally I settled on a more for four class, and was informed that my son was too smart for more at four, *g go figure* 


So I can see why some mothers will do it, but Not all day everyday.

That's a pretty ridiculous thing to get worked up over, especially when you don't live inside their walls.

I can see that, but then again its not like its all day every day

My 3 yo should actually be in school he has autism its a preschool disability class. Kids are there from 3-5 then move on to kindergarten my 7 yo goes to the same school he's in 2nd grade.

Oh and if ds was in that class its only half day but it's 5 days a week and they get "homework"
