my DS asked me this the other day and i thought of this board.
It is not clear what you are asking. I am sure you know what a daycare is, so that can't be your actual question. Perhaps you are asking how to explain it to your son in a non-judgmental way?
"but i do think kids, general, do recognize the surroundings by which they are raised."

It always strikes me when someone says those kids GET
Why was daycare something you and your DH wanted to avoid?
Yes, there is quite the judgment involved in that phrase. But even if "home" is perfectly attractive, I really dislike when people imply that kids have some sort of instinctive or "natural" preference for being home with mom. Kids tend to adjust to all kinds of "normal," and as long as they are safe, cared for and have requisite attachment to those near and dear, I really don't think the details matter all that much.
Sure but even without the winky icon, don't you think she said that tongue in cheek?
I was just borrowing OP's phrase. I do not share the sentiment, no, but I think mommy2 caught that.
Lol, but, yeah, I did echo Egd's phrase. My use was tongue in cheek.
