    Nope my mum was a sahm. We all went to kindy the year we turned 4 for 2 5 hour days a week. Then pre school the next year (attached the the state primary school we then attended) for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week (there was a morning group and an afternoon group).

    We never went to vacation care either.

    Sort of. I went to a kindy type place the year before I started Preschool. I HATED it, I still remember it. They gave us stew for lunch and I can still picture the brown plastic bowls and the feral peas floating in it.

    Before that I went to work with Mum when I was little (she worked in a shop) and then she and a neighbour swapped child care duties. Mum worked a lot of night jobs while Dad was home with us, in hindsight they did a lot of juggling so were mostly home with us a lot, this continued right up to high school.

    I've ended up the same. I do shift work so I can be home with the kids and use as little CC as possible.

    My parents never used childcare. I am the 7th child out of 11 and my mum was a stay at home mum her whole life- all the way through to the youngest finishing high school.

    She is not against the use of childcare in our modern world and understand the want/ need for women to go back to work or stay in the workforce/ earn income etc.

    I in turn have 3 young children under 4 and am a stay at home mum- and we are hoping for more children and for me to be stay at home for as long as possible. I consider us very luck we can financial manage for me to be home and we love the routine/ balance we have between husband/ wife and our roles.

    Nope. Mum worked night shift, dad worked day shift. They hardly saw each other thru the week. Mum went back to work when we were 2 months old.

    Mum was a SAHM but put me in CC just for a few hours once a week so she could do the shopping and catch up on some housework etc. I absolutely hated it so much. I asked her about it awhile ago and was shocked to learn it was only for 4 hours a week, I could have sworn it was loads more. Then when we were in primary school she went back to work and we were required to go to after care twice a week. Once again I vehemently hated it. Clearly I was not a child that could cope with CC in any capacity
