And....YOU are an idiot because you don't know the difference between your and you're!
Speaking of lack of being able to parent, please teach your stay-at-home children the difference (or pay someone else to do it!)

WRONG ! All kids need socialization some way and it can't just be from mom. Just because a mom puts her kid in a program for let's say only 2 hours a week does not make her a bad mom. It makes a GOOD mom because kids need to be around other kids unless you gave birth to a litter !

I think your an idiot!! Whatever makes you feel better about your lack of being able to parent, so you pay someone to do it for you!!

I wouldn't say they have to go to daycare but I think interacting with kids their age on a regular basis is good

While children do need socialization and a change of stimuli daycare is not the only place to find that. Many SAHM take their children to parks, play groups, momma and baby or toddler activity classes. So I would have to disagree with your statement.

Obviously, my child's private daycare is top 1% in the country and daycares are extremely different from state to state.....
So many of you read this and said "no way my child is going to that ratty low-rent daycare in that lady's basement!"
I wasn't comparing apples to apples.

This is too hilarious. I nearly spit my drink. Seriously? Do people really believe this? I spent most of my pre-k life around adults and cousins who were at least 3 years older than me. Socially I am just fine thankyouverymuch. Not only that, one of my friend's sons also interacted mostly with adults and kids much older than he. Again, he is just fine.

Sure! I did that too in addition to daycare--- parks, museums, plays, orchestra halls, toddler activity class, art classes, gymnastics, swim lessons at 3----It is just not the same because "Mommy" is right there CONSTANTLY! Other people "without mommy" is the key to building an independent, confident child. Mother's on this site are very myopic and believe their child should only get their point of view every day.
Thank you for being a decent responder with manners:)

 I would agree that some children would be far better off in daycare than at home with the parents.  Especially the poor kids that are stuck being raised by the crazies.  Sadly, those are the welfare fools who are paid to sit at home and pretend they are SAHM's when they are nothing more than welfare queens.
