Backup childcare

What do WOHMs generally use for backup childcare if their kid is sick, so the daycare won't take them, and neither parent can leave work stay home with them that particular day? This is not a rhetorical question today. I always hear about how people should have a backup plan - but where the heck can you send sick kids (just a cold)? Today DS will be in class with me, but it's a last resort.

"Maybe they should go find a different job that is more friendly and accomodating toward people with children."


And, maybe, some people should find a job, any job, to support their children.


"Maybe people should change jobs before they have children to a place that is more family-friendly.:


And, many people should have any job at all before having kids that they cannot afford.

Or people could stay at home if they decide to "make babies" instead of having another SAHM like me or a daycare teacher (like I was)

actually, that made our in-home dc providers -- wahms - NOT sahms. And, our previous nanny was a wohm who brought her two children with her (until the oldest was in first grade).

Hmm....I know I have asked before but I don't recall an answer, are you homeschooling your children or sending them to a traditional school?

She answered this on the welfare board and she is not homeschooling her children.

Ah, thanks...don't read that one.


So I guess then it would logically follow that those who use traditional school also send their children to teachers and/or the school to educate and care (sliding scale of course depending on age of the child) for theirs all day.
