Role of Daycares
Parenting includes activities that lead to the support and promotion of physical, social, emotional and intellectual development in infants. Parenting is done till a person gets into adulthood from a child. The biological parents usually offer the parental care to children in most times although there are other situations where parenting may be done by older siblings, legal guardians, grandparents, family members as well as family friends. In situations where a child may be orphaned or be abandoned by the family members, he/she may be adopted by individuals who they are not related to but they offer parental care such as foster parents or orphanages. Licensing of these foster care families and orphanages is very important to ensure that they do not carry out illegal activities with these children hence the government and the society comes in to monitor and evaluate their work. Parents who offer parental care to their children such that the children develop into responsible adults are referred to as good parent.
Parental care is influenced by a number of factors such as wealth, culture, social class as well as the incomes. Some of the factors that will influence the resources and opportunities that children are provided to during parenting are the wealth, social class and incomes. There are parents who might be travelling a lot affecting their parenting since they have little time to spend with their children. This will require them to look for a daycare that will be taking care of the child all day when the parent is not available. It might be hard to get a good daycare where one can leave their child or children more so for a travelling parent but with proper search, they will be able to get a daycare near them. A good daycare provider should be able to love the children honestly and genuinely so that they can be able to take good care of the children. Taking care of the children requires that the daycare provider be a natural nurturer and warm to people where they can be able show affection to the 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.
Spending the day in a daycare may be tough on the child hence the travelling parent should explain into details the reasons. A parent should give the child the details regarding leaving them especially based on the child temperament and age and give all the details needed. 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.
