Daycare Is Not School

Hi, Dr. Laura!

I just wanted to share something with you I've been seeing a lot lately among moms that I think would bug you too.

I'm a stay at home mom to 2 kids. Now I see a lot of mothers who put their kids in Daycare, but they call it "school". These kids are anywhere from 6 months old to 2 years old, but they are in school? No, they are in daycare! So many people now refuse to call it that. As if by somehow calling it "school" relieves them of the guilt for doing it.

I just wanted to share that with you. I wasn't sure if you knew about this new word for daycare. Thanks, Dr. Laura! You're the voice for our stay at home mom's and I know I'm doing the right thing!
