    Hmm… Regardless of who did or didn`t throw the first punch and the reasons for doing so, if I was another parent I`d be rapidly finding myself another daycare centre regardless.

    Maybe he threw the first punch, maybe he didn`t. We don`t know. But from that video, those women were not defending themselves against him, they were attacking in a pack.

    It really does depend a lot on who started it. There`s a huge difference between "I felt threatened.." and "He (she) hit me!" Huge!

    There are BAD daycares out there! Usually run by bad people, with bad staff. Parents beware!

    This. Who threw the first punch is irrelevant considering the woman are beating on a man holding a small child and paying no attention to the babies they`re stepping on to get at him

    I know this may seem a controversial remark to some, going against the bein pensant as it does, but if you put a child younger than 6 into the care of a stranger then you are a bad parent.

    If you are a single mother (not the same thing as a widow) then, statistically speaking, you will not do a good job at raising your child.

    We would all like to do whatever we want all the time but there are such things as responsibilities. As soon as you have a child then your happiness takes a backseat to the child`s welfare.

    I recognise that this may be difficult to acheive due to the high cost of living that is why i feel the rest of the world would be wise to follow Germany`s lead in paying mothers to raise their own children instead of the damaging alternative which the UK practices: giving working mothers money to pay strangers to care for their child.

    @som-tam: Bollocks. At 6 you are already a few years into school, not including nursery.

    Speaking as someone with two kids, I need a night every now and then away from them. I would go insane if I couldn`t have have some peace every now and then. Ever gone 3 nights without sleep because the kids take in turns to wake up in the night? I started hallucinating and could easily of hurt one of them without thinking about it.

    All well and good speaking of statistics, but the reality is you will put so much stress on yourself that it will most likely end your relationship, make you resent your kids deep inside and shave a few years off your life.

    If you meant just strangers and family is fine... my family has/had enough of their own kids. I can`t always ask them or they might not want to do it at all afterwards.

    @Som-Tam - you really think that Som-Tam? Do you really think that people put there children in daycare to do as you say "whatever they want" they put there children in there so they can work and provide for them. A single mom/dad widowed or not is still single - just because the other have past does not improve or change the fact that you are now rising a child on your own. I agree that it is best for parent to stay at home and raise a child but sometimes you can’t always do that. You do not know why this child was in daycare so don’t try to stand on high without know.
    The reality is that they are both in the wrong – the father for allowing himself to set a bad example and resorting to violence and the daycare provider for caring on the violence and not calling the cops. Who through the first punch is irrelevant they both are wrong.

    @evil eye: That is why parenting is a 2 person job. So you can act as a tag-team and help each other deal with the demands and responsibilities.

    @Apexs: I discount widows and widowers as they have become a sole parent through tragedy, not because they were promiscuous or irresponsible or just decided that they didn`t want to remain married. Widows and widowers should be afforded all the support they need.

    I have a young child and the majority of parents that use nurseries are career-women that want to `have it all` or just want to be able to afford all the mod-cons and foreign holidays that they could when childless. that is what i meant by `do whatever we want`. Having a child used to mean making sacrifices: for 1 parent it meant sacrificing a career, for the other meant sacrificing free-time and enduring hard work while also fighting the evolutionary desire to find a newer/younger mate to reproduce with.

    som-tam - I`m sorry, that`s not how it works here in Germany. My friends with kids have much more money to run the household if they put the children into daycare so Mum can go out and earn money.

    @ SOM - You have no idea of other people’s situations. A single mom/father does not always mean that they are promiscuous or irresponsible. You judge without know. Not everyone works just to afford holidays or mod-cons – some people have to work to provide the basic necessities of life. A lot of parents both work so that their kids do not have to suffer living in poverty. If it means that they have to drop off their child for a few hours so that their child can have a home with power/food/running water/cloths; that is what you have to do. Life is hard and you have to make hard calls to make sure your child is provided for.
    Again you know nothing of this person or people who have to use daycare. You assume it’s so they can have the latest mod-con. What if your wife left you? Would you quit your job and stay at home? How then would you provide for your small child if you did not have a job? Would you rely on government assis

    Stop and ask yourself these questions before you answer back. What would you do in their situation? What would you do if you had no one to help you?

    @Apexs: I wouldn`t find myself in that situation because i am not irresponsible. When i was not ready to have children I exercised caution and used protection. When I got married it was to someone i knew was right. When we decided to have a baby it was because we knew we could afford one.
    I said before that I accept that it is difficult to be a good parent in this economy but that doesn`t mean that the definition of good parent should be adjusted to suit. You should be angry that these people are encouraged to be bad parents by various agencies and politician.

    @Fwoggie: So mothers do not get benefits to be a stay at home mother? I was informed by the BBC that this was the case.

    I agree with som-tam and so do a couple of studies. Children are better off in the care of their parents, not strangers. I realize that some situations it`s impossible financially, but that`s not most. Working and buying them stuff cannot replace your presence in their life. And the child`s needs supersede your wishes. I`m not sexist, either parent, doesn`t matter. But one should be there.

    You hear all the time that Parenting is 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Amazing that you can do it with just 2 hours contact in the morning, and 5 at night before everyone goes to sleep. Most of that time your busy cooking for them & such. You might get 3 actual hours interaction with them. You must really be a talent for those 3 hours to overcome the 10 hours they spent away from you with "the day mommy".

    @som-tam: Tag-Team? We live in the same house. I will be awake when they play silly buggers whether it is my turn to calm them down or not.

    I don`t think I ever met someone who resents their parents for needing a babysitter. I never seen my kids like me less when me or Rose picks them up after work. Yes we both work and we can just about make ends meet with enough money left over we can use for other stuff that life crops up. I last time I had a day to "Do whatever I want" was a month ago for my birthday. Before that? My birthday last year! Ain`t I a rotter?

    @Gerry1of1: Humans are more complicated then statistics. There has been studies that claim to show that it is impossible for gay men to have a healthy relationship or that it is all one big choice. Don`t just throw the word studies like it is proof that your view point is right, you are better then that. However your ability to cook and do chores does need work if it takes you 4 hours a day on average...

    I never said that opition was wrong Gerry - I do agree that childern should be with there parent/s but what I take is wrong calling someone a bad parent because they are single or have to drop there child off at daycare. He does not know everyone situation therefor he can not judge them and call them "bad parents"

    If you don`t have a choice financially then you go to work and do the best you can obviously. I`m not saying it makes you a bad parent.

    When you don`t have to but choose a job over being with your child then you`re just being selfish putting your wants ahead of the kids needs. Justify it any way you want it`s still a matter of what is the real priority in your life.

    After the kids are of school age you`ve got some time to seek careers or just jobs to get out of the house. But teens who have a parent at home waiting for them after school are far less likely to get into all kinds of trouble. So while you`re sucking up to your boss for another promotion, who`s happiness are you really look out for first? I don`t know, I`m not psychic. Ask yourself but don`t lie to yourself, you always know you did.

    The women claimed he threw the first punch and he was arrested. But he claimed the woman threw the first punch and the charges were dropped. The day cares authority is investigating her behavior.
