Role of Daycares
Parenting involves all activities that promote as well as support physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. Parenting begins in a child from when he/she is an infant up to adulthood. In most cases, parenting is offered by the biological parents to the child although in other situations it can be done by older siblings, legal guardians, grandparents, family members as well as family friends. Adoption of children who have been orphaned or abandoned by their family members or friends into orphanages and to foster care families who offer the parental care to these children. It is important to monitor the activities of these foster care families and orphanages which can be done by the government by licensing them or even the society to ensure that parental care is offered to these children adequately. A good parent is one who is able to offer good parental care to their child or children who will turn into responsible adults who are the envy of everybody.
Parental care is influenced by a number of factors such as wealth, culture, social class as well as the incomes. Some of these factors such as wealth, social class and incomes will influence the resources and opportunities that are made available to the child or children. Travelling parents will have little time to spend with their children and this may affect their parental care to their children. A traveling parent will, therefore, need the services of a daycare provider who will be taking care of the children during the day. The travelling parent may find it hard to get a suitable daycare where they can drop their children for the day. Spending with different children for a whole day requires a lot of patience form the daycare service providers hence one should be able to love these children genuinely and honestly. Being a natural nurturer as well as being warm to people is a very important trait for the children is also an important trait for the daycare providers to ensure that they can take good care of their children. Since the parents are not available to offer parental care to children, a daycare provider should be able to enhance physical, social, emotional and intellectual development and growth in the children.
For the travelling parent, there are various ways in which they can talk to their children to ensure that the child or children understands that they can spend the day with the parent but in a daycare. Telling these details will be influenced by the temper of the child as well as his/her age. A travelling parent should never prolong the departures, sneak away from the child, display some guilt about leaving the child as well as acting anxious when leaving the child.
