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