The latest argument proffered to me about why I shouldn't worry whether my child (ever) sleeps at daycare?
"If it doesn't affect her sleep at night, and it's not affecting your life, then why do you care if she doesn't nap here?"
By that logic, then I suppose I shouldn't try to get her to eat foods other than french fries, shouldn't worry if she goes around in a sodden diaper all day as long as she doesn't cry, shouldn't care whether she works hard in school (in the future) and makes good grades, shouldn't pay attention to her development now. I don't even have to talk to her if it doesn't suit my fancy!
Because, heck! Those things don't really affect MY life at all! Obviously, raising children is all about ME!
Wow, daycare. Thank you so much for clarifying what my role as a parent should be. You've lifted an enormous weight off of my shoulders.
(Honestly, I didn't even know how to respond to that. They don't seem to understand the concept of, "I want my child to develop to her full potential," and I fear that it would be taken as an insult. And well, it kind of is one if they are the kind of parents that do those sorts of things.)
