1. Ds has been like VELCRO. I can't leave the room to go potty without a fuss. I have to carry him every we go (he's 3. He can walk.)
2. Ds hasn't done well with potty training during this time.
3. Ds hasn't eaten well during this time.
So, Monday I took him to the local church child care center as a drop in. He was there for about 6 hours. When gma picked him up, he didn't wanna come home. He was talking about how much fun he had (they went to thel ibrary and read dinosaur books). And the rest of the night, he WASN'T VELCRO BABY! He talked up a storm all night. He ate supper well. I didn't have to carry him anywhere. He actually stayed more than an inch from me all night. It was amazing! And he stayed dry at daycare!
So, Tuesday he's back to velcro baby.
So, Today I take him again .. for about 3.5 hours. He was independent, well behaved teh rest of the day.
So, I think I can safely say that child care has not harmed my son. In fact, it has been extremely beneficial to him, especially this week. And, GASP!, I took him, gulp, BY CHOICE! When I, bigger gasp, wasn't even working!
Just wanted to hear thoughts here ... and get the board a new thread.
