Parents spend a significant amount of time raising their children. These parents nurture and develop their children into being functional members of society. This hard work is not motivated by monetary gain. For centuries it has been assumed that women will stay home and take care of the children while their husbands go out and work. In most cases, the husbands get all the credit for providing for the family. However, the wife who is the homemaker, deserves just as much credit for her care work. Caregivers do not receive monetary compensation and they must pay a 'care-penalty'.
Yet when we talk about any of these issues, we hear little response from those who support this kind of social structure, such as Pollitt in her NYT op-ed and the panelists who discussed this topic with me on NPR’s “On Point” recently. That’s because the left has moved beyond robustly justifying entitlements that have the potential to undermine families and thus society itself, just like Social Security has helped bring America’s fertility rate nearly below replacement level by reducing generational interdependence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeCahRCgOfI
I had to last second find child care for my daughter a week before my college semester started since I was on the wait list for another child care that I'm still wait listed on! Kindercare took us in and it was a very easy process. Took a lot of stress off my plate knowing my daughter was going into a great child care facility. My daughter loves it here at kindercare she is always so excited when we walk in she loves the food they feed her and I can tell she's learning stuff at school. She comes home and does new things and says new things. Her class teachers are very friendly and caring. I like that we write papers to give specific info for the day, like if she needs diaper cream or if she needed milk etc, and it's nice to read what she ate and when she was changed and what she did that day, it's very engaging. I would recommend a kinder care facility to any of my fellow moms. I feel very confident in leaving my child in their care, my first concern when starting day care is that she wouldn't like it and cry, but she is happy to go in and thrives here and learns a lot! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eeCahRCgOfI
