Children Are Our Future

I work in childcare and ECE so my opinion is probably obvious, but I’m pretty sure I’d feel this way even if I went to law school or got into construction.

Take care of the people who take care of your children. Treat them well. Pay them well. Make sure they have the resources they need to do a good job.

From your babysitter, to your daycare, to the school where most kids spend most of their day, these people are caring for your children.

If you don’t think they are doing their job well enough to deserve decent pay then stop letting them care for your children and find someone that meets your standards. Stop leaving your children with someone that you don’t think deserves to be paid well and treated with respect.

This should not be controversial.

People who are satisfied with their job do a better job. I want everyone who works with my children to do their best work.
