Does anyone actually raise their own kids anymore? EDIT

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Seriously...it seems like most parents are paying someone else to watch their kids for them! Whether it be daycare, a nanny, or an au pair.

What is the point in having children if you work all the time and pay someone else to raise your kids? Do you really think that is good for them?

Obviously people need to work, but why not get a job with a flexible schedule before you have a child? 

Let me be more clear: I am specifically talking about two parent households. I see sooo many kids who are in full time daycare that really don't need it. It takes a long time to have a child, therefore, plenty of time to sort out schedules so that one parent can always be home with the child. 

There is a big difference between part time childcare and full time childcare.

I am talking about two parent households that put all of their children in full time daycare. I'm talking like 12 hours a day! Daycare is ridiciliously expensive so it seems like one parent's income would go towards paying daycare fees anyways. I just don't understand that.

I don't pay anyone. I just drop him off with the trolls under the bridge so I can have 8 hours of daily "me" time. Happy mom = happy home.

You found a daycare that raises kids, why didnt I know of such a place!!!

My shitty daycare only cares for my child while I work to put food on the table and a roof over his head

Apparently I have been doing it wrong!

There are a ton of SAHMs on here, probably more than working moms. I'm a SAHM, my parents were ft working parents. Guess what? They worked full time, and raised me too. It's not impossible to do both. You know multi tasking like sitting on a high horse, and stirring the pot at the same time.
