It's one of those controversial subjects that some people are either emphatically for, or against. Personally, I don't agree w/ daycare. Even though my child my do very well in it, it's just not for us.
Granted, children, situations, parents, are all different, so what works for one may not work for another.
I too am often flying solo w/ the kids, and my child is a complete maniac at time. So yes, I am sometimes a twitching, emotional and mental mess- but I don't go to work, I stay home which is why I feel like my kids should just be with me.
But again, agree or disagree, everyone has their own opinions about that subject.
