    Tell them to read a recent article in an English newspaper (? Daily Telegraph) citing the psychological damage young kids suffer from when they are 'looked after' by strangers.

    I had a rule that my child would never be babysat by 'outsiders' before he was old enough to tell me they were trying to diddle him.

    And that could actually be the least of worries with young babies and their soft heads and fragile necks.

    Don't want to appear judgemental but I hope they reconsider.

    It's easy enough to check out the staff, not all nurseries fiddle the children. Pretty knee jerk if you ask me, ole IA...

    Have them look at Gymbouree (sp). They have alot of western clients and they keep the kids busy all day with activities (and naps)

    Welll , that was my rule in Canada, as it applied to anyone other than family taking care of our baby. And the principle stands.

    I would never put my child into the care of others without the ability of my child to offer me some for of concrete feedback.

    And what about those soft little necks?

    All you need is an immature, and frustrated caretaker, and in one moment, that baby, and your life, is changed forever.

    I'll take care of my own kids to a point is all I'm saying. And I'd advise others to do the same is all. Because, unless you're a piece of heartless trash, no one loves your kid more than you.

    One is very young, it might be better to hire a very good nanny and keep the lad at home. Thats what I chose to do. Might be cheaper in the long run as well. Either way the boy will be exposed to Thai at a young age.

    No offence but why do the words childcare and soi Nana make me shudder.

    Knew a chap who took his 14 year old step daughter for a swim in Nana Hotel swimming pool and was shocked at the reaction of some of the clientele.
    This is story is not meant to reflect on the quality of the Nana daycare centre.

    Wow! Heartened to hear so much advice that confirms my own feelings.

    A one year old belongs with mum and dad...

    With some of the sick stories you read in the papers, this is definitely one of my worries in Thailand anywhere, anytime.
