Where has America's compassion and understanding for its children gone? Where has the belief in the value of a child's rights to a safe and happy childhood gone?
Once in our history people stood up for the rights of our children. A need was perceived and public schooling was the response of the people. It is time society faced up to a new need, the need of younger children with parents who work.
With the growing number of women in today's workplace, the luxury of a stay-at-home mother is becoming a thing of the past for most children. These children, as well as their parents, need our attention!
Child care for children who are under school age has been, and basically still is, the sole responsibility of the parents. But, occasionally there comes a time when parents have to ask for assistance. This was the case for over 200 parents who have children who attend the Aladdin Day Care Center.
