Child Care Study

Child-Care Study
By: Stephanie Byars

A long-term US government study on daycare finds there's no substitute for good parenting.  The study found children who got higher quality childcare scored better on vocabulary tests than children who received poor quality care.  And the more time children spent in day care centers, the more likely their sixth grade teachers were to report problem behaviors.  But, researchers say attention from parents is far more important to how a child turns out than daycare or schooling.

Whether you are a stay at home mom, a working mom, a dad, grandparent, or caretaker, we all have opinions on raising our kids.  So, we want to know what you think about this study.  Share your thoughts and experiences about bringing up your baby in our online forum.
