    @Unschooling4, you haven't answered the question, and I'm curious - what is it you're concerned about?

    Just a guess.

    Default How do you feel about Childcare / early learning?

    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.

    I think it was meant in a negative way.

    Yep i know you got hammered on one of my threads a while ago. Lots of us, myself included, wouldn't choose the journey you have but that's what's great about this country is that you can choose. We have options.

    Stay strong, i was impressed by your ability to stay courteous in the face of hostility.

    There's a big difference between saying your child goes to an educational institution and alluding that someone else's child has been institutionalized.

    I didn't take it that way. Naturally the effects of institutions can be negative and positive depending on what the outcomes are and what parents want.

    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.
