that's difference - with an "e" :)


Inspired by a post the other day, I think from peteynjoeysmom, about contracting out the "drudge work" of childcare and housework.


Do you think there's a big difference between "childcare" and "parenting", and if so, what is it?

Parenting is when the child is yours; child care is when the child isn't.

PS.. Off topic, but I thought I'd mention that in Alaska my brother pays $500 per week for daycare. WOW -- now I don't use dc, but isn't that a lot?

We pay $800 a week, plus taxes, health care premiums and gas. $500 for two young kids sounds good to me.

for one child I do consider that very high for basic center or family care -- if it was a nanny then no I wouldn't consider it high.

My neighbor pays $600 a month for one child to attend daycare in my town. When I was pregnant I looked into babysitting and the average around here was about $100 -$150 a week. The cost of living is a lot higher in Alaska...they pay $500 a week for one child. Money the could've saved if they hadn't left us. : (
