What I have learnt about childcare in seven years of being a parent

What I have learnt about childcare in seven years of being a parent

Occasionally I meet a mum who has young children over the age of one, but has not yet been out with her partner alone and does not use any form of care through the week.

If it is for financial reasons and they have no family close by to help, then I understand, but if it is a decision based on pure choice, I am always impressed by their sheer fortitude and strength of spirit.

Personally, I cannot parent acceptably if I am doing it 100 per cent of the time. I would literally go quite mad if I did not get time away from my two children to do something, literally anything else, for a few fabulous hours.

Because of this weakness of character or self-awareness, I have used an array of care styles for my boys over the last seven years including grandparents, teenage babysitters, friends, family day care and child care centres.
