BJ'S BLOG 08/23/12 "Day Care"
Yesterday on the show, we read a story about how this generation is raising kids that really got under my skin.
In Delaware, three day care employees have been accused of encouraging toddlers at the day care to fight each other while they were taking care of them.
The employees, 19-year-old Tiana Harris, 47-year-old Lisa Parker, and Estefania Myers, 21, of the Hands of Our Future Daycare were arrested after a cell phone video emerged of them allegedly encouraging two 3-year-olds to fight in an organized battle.
Police said in the video one child is heard yelling, "He’s pinching me!" A day care worker allegedly responded, "No pinching, only punching."
I know that this isn’t the case for every day care but these people were leaving their children in the hands of miserable human beings!
We are living in a generation where most people don’t even take care of their own children full time; they rely on the day care system.
The reason why day care use has seem to have gone up over the years is because parents have to work two jobs just to make ends meet and support the kids.
Back in the day, one parent stayed home to take care of the kids just to make sure they grew up with your own values and have all the attention they need. If you can’t support the number of kids you have or want with just one income, then should you really have kids? Is it fair to them to have to be put in a game of “Day Care Roulette?”
Would you rather stay at home and take care of your kids while your spouse works or is it more true that you don’t want to really parent you kid…you just want another trophy, another object, another plaything you can enjoy.
