Wouldn't You Want Your Mother Instead of Day Care?
04/24/2019


I recently came across an email to you I never sent about my niece who was expecting her first child, working as a full-time CPA and contemplating day care following her 12 week leave. Everyone at her work told her day care helps the child develop social skills. She visited a day care where there were 2 helpers for 10 infants - kind of scary she said.  I asked if she had ever listened to you. I told her she was about to take on the most important job of her life. 

Fast forward 12 years later, she and her husband are the happy parents of 6 kids, ages 11 down to 18 months, and she NEVER went back to work. She is a fantastic mother and wife and would not trade a minute of her time spent raising and loving their children!
