I'm surprised to be honest people are reeling at the term "institutionalised" used in the context of childcare. It's not an insult. It's a common term. I've heard teachers and educators use it regularly. It's not equating it with prison. But childcare institutions is a very common term.
Stay strong, i was impressed by your ability to stay courteous in the face of hostility.
Ok if anyone actually reads anything i totally said each to their own when it comes to childcare
I think it's unfortunate people here leap on everything that poster says and every thread she's in becomes about her views and that's about it.
Who cares if she doesn't want her children institutionalised. I'd imagine a lot of unschoolers feel the same way. Is it that surprising?
Concerns i have for my son in daycare:
Him not being respected
Him not being heard/listened to
Not being able to say if anything is wrong (though as a parent I'd know)
Daycare workers lying (this has happened ib the past)
Not having the freedom to do/play what he wants
Being forced into routines eg forced to take naps when he isnt tired or eat when he isnt hungry.
