Parents have always been known to be overly protective of their children, and justifiably so. Indeed, there are so many risks and dangers in this modern world that we need to keep away from our children. Something that may have been of little concern just a few years back would have turned into a serious potential danger in this era.
However, when this protective nature turns into unreasonable paranoia, it would not only become harmful to yourself, but also your children. You might end up denying your child some valuable experience just because you're scared stiff of some unknown danger. One such fear is the apprehension that your child would adopt negative behaviours from other children in a child care centre.
Just to be fair to all loving and caring parents, there are child care institutions that may not be a good influence to your child. However, you must realize that this is largely based on the manner in which the centre is run. In fact, a clinical psychologist in Los Angeles, Dr. Francine Lederer (based on a quote from an article in Fox News Health), and points out that a well-run child care program would actually provide an opportunity for the kids to learn how to use their voices in solving conflicts, rather than resulting to physical action.
It's Not 100 Percent True That Parents Are The Best Care Givers
Every parent wants to believe that he/ she would give the best care to his/ her kids. Indeed, no one can ever replace the love and care which you can only get from your parents. That unconditional, parental love makes a child feel wanted and valuable - someone who is of great value to the world.
However, the reality is that you would never have turned out to become a teacher, banker, IT expert or any other professional if you only had your parents to train you. The extra care and training isn't something that you would only need when you grow older, but it's definitely a valuable necessity even for a young child.
Day care provides an enhanced opportunity for growth and development of young kids, under the guidance of well-trained professionals. The teachers are knowledgeable in handling all forms of behavioural problems. This helps them in guiding children along the right development path.
Moreover, such a facility that caters to a group of kids would offer the chance for young children to build social skills - an incredibly valuable skill necessary for success in adult life. If you have only one child, or the other kids in your home are way older than your youngest child, you should definitely consider a child care facility where your child can interact with others of the same age.
Moreover, whether you like it or not, the moment your child is born into the world, he/ she is already on track to joining the highly regimented and organized school system and thereafter the business or career world. Therefore, starting off with a much less regimented child care centre will at least help your child make the transition to school life by easing the shock of a sudden transition into the organized school system.
