    I don't care what section it's in. It's a discussion on the benefits of childcare and I do work, so neer.

    Raising your child full time means being with providing full time care to your child yourself.

    Default Kids couldn't care less about going to child-care

    It totally depends on the child. My friends son was so distressed at CC that he wouldn't eat, sleep etc. In this case I think it is harmful. my Dd has only just started one day a week and she is 2. I think it is doing her the world of good.

    So are you working or are you raising your child "full time"?

    Also, no parent should be made to feel guilty for doing what they have to do to make ends meet etc.

    We're raising our child full time. I work a few hours a week.

    What about those who work because they choose to, not just to make ends meet? Should they be made to feel guilty?

    I work. My kids are at daycare 3 days a week. I don't like it and would prefer to be home with them, but they do love going and I think they get a lot out of it

    I liked the article.

    I'm surprised by all the hatred towards Nem Fox though. I think any one that has a baby, then as soon as possible puts them in full time daycare to go back to work whether they need to or not has a lot to answer for.

    I work 40 hours a week and I also consider that I raise my child full-time. Just because she goes to childcare (well she's at school now, but she was at childcare from the age of 1) doesn't make me a part-time mother.

    I never said it makes you a part-time mother.

    You can consider it what you want, we obviously both label it differently. So for discussions sake I believe the benefits of my children being with their parents full time outweigh the benefits of childcare.

    Those are my ideals, they don't have to be yours.

    Well you originally stated what you thought were the benefits for others' children, not just your own:
