Sunday Showcase

I came across a great article on one of my favorite blogs this week and knew this had to be the Sunday Showcase!

Childhood 101 is a great resource for parents taking care of their children. The topics on the site include; Play, Create, Learn, Read, Home, Eat, Family, Make. So as you can see there is just about everything you could be looking for. The site was founded by Christie Burnett out of Australia. She worked in early childhood education for 15 years before deciding to stay at home with her children. She currently is a freelance writer in addition to running her blog. She has contributors helping on the blog as well. Their content is relevant and informative. 

Which brings me to the article that inspired this post:

The article is started by a reader letter asking for advice on whether or not to send a child to child care. This is a big question for working and stay-at-home parents. I think that many times parents pin each other against one another instead of working together to be better parents. They can do this by judging choices parents make for their children. Parents of children in child care whether it is Mother's Day Out, Day Care, Preschool say all children should go to these options. Parents of children who do not participate in these options say that they have the means and the ability to provide everything their child needs. There is no easy answer to this debate but when presented with the question Christie could NOT have put it better! Check out her answer here.

I have been questioning whether or not to send Jacob to a Mother's Day out program at least one half day a week so this posting could not have come at a better time. The best part of reading this post is that is was written in Australia. It is so comforting to know that there are people out there that are thinking, feeling, experiencing the same things as you! I really appreciate the 'Blog World' where else could I receive this comfort!
