So it’s not enough that Hillary wants to force you at gunpoint to buy health care “insurance” from Uncle, even though you are a millionaire who is healthy as a horse.
No, she also wants to force you to put your kid in a day (don’t) care center. Let’s not kid ourselves here. We’re not talking about pre-kindergarten, we’re talking about babysitting. A 4 year old who has spent the first 3 years in day-care is going to be about as functional as a home-kept (actually day (do) care) 2 year old.
Yes every kid is different. My 4 year old is reading and my 5 year old is reading at about 2nd grade. I’m sure your snowflake is a genious as well. But I have also seen day-care centers in action, first-hand. I have heard reports of 3 year-olds in diapers in walkers, unable to speak. And we’re going to put these kids in school? No, friends, pre-k for average 4 year-olds is day-care. 4 year-olds are barely kept in control by *some* parents. How do you expect some “teacher” to get a whole classroom full of babies to behave for classes all day? Not.
Nevermind all the stories of kids neglected to the point of serious injury and death. How many times have you heard about a kid left in the day-care bus and forgotten, broiled alive in the summer sun? My personal favorite was a kid left outside on the playground. Not even a toddler, a very baby. On the blacktop. In the summer. Without skin on hands and knees after crawling on the boiling-hot macadam, screaming in pain, unheard by the jerks inside who neglected to get a head-count after recess. Yeah, let my kids at ’em. Sure, your “learning center” is different. Right. Try to at least act like you care when you hear about the next kid killed or seriously injured by not-parents, when one of the parents could have foregone some “stuff” and stayed home for a few years.
Yes, yes, some people have circumstances that require the kid to be in day-care. Most don’t and I’m not even going to argue with you about it. About 90% of the families with babies in day-care just want to unload the little screamers and keep working so they can have a bigger plasma TV or that next vacation. I can hear them whining already and it falls on deaf ears.
YOU can care for your children better than a day-care center can. If you had a choice, would you rather spend YOUR first 4 years with Mommy, Nanny, or Day-care worker?
THEN WHY THE **** ARE YOUR KIDS IN DAY-CARE! You only get one shot at rearing them and you’re opting out. It’s only a few years of sacrifice, get over yourself already.
Hillary’s a communist folks. Or a socialist (even the communists have trouble keeping their name stright). She thinks your children belong to the government, or else she wouldn’t have the audacity to call for them to be cared for by someone other than you.
If her “mandatory” 4 pre-k is the same kind of “mandatory” as her health care, I’m going to say it looks like she wants to steal your children from you. My wife is happy at home, training our children to be Good People. We’d rather not show them the other uses of bananas until they are old enough to understand what the banana represents, thanks. We’ll teach them about having 2 mommies when they can understand that it’s not the way to be ‘normal’. We’ll also keep them several years ahead of their peers by training them at home, or in a private school, instead of a government indoctrination center.
