    Daycare vs. Schools

    Advertisements
    For those of you who don't like day cares or prefer to be a SAHM to watch your children, do you also want to homeschool your children or do you want them to go to public/private schools when they are old enough to? (For women/men who worry that they're child may be abused or mistreated, that's what this is referring to, sorry if I was vague earlier.)

    Why, if you do, would you prefer one over another? And is there a difference between the two?

    (I don't have kids, but I'm interested to see the responses to this.)

    My child can more or less protect itself at the age of five.

    At the age of one, not so much.

    Hm...IF I were to put my child in daycare, I would make sure it was a damn good daycare.

    I never went to daycare. I went to Jack & Jill at my church at age 2-3 and at age 4 started K-4 at the private school my mom taught at. (is taught a word? it looks weird...) I have been at that same private school ever since and graduated from it.

    I will probably do the same for my child. When and IF I have one.

    Chels, did you really just ask if taught was a word?

    There is a big difference between daycare and elementary education IMO...

    Daycare, while yes some have curriculum's and you do socialize the kids, its glorified babysitting... you change rooms depending on your age, not what you know

    Going to school, having to pass tests and what not... its a much bigger deal

    I see your point. However, my OP is pretty vague, but I was referring to the sense of security that one institution(right word?) may have over the other.
