“Let’s raise children who wont have to recover from their childhoods.” – Pam Leo
Did you miss the show? Check it out here:
When I was pregnant with my two children, I basked in my emerging motherhood glow. I floated through air, haughtily laughing whenever my babies fluttered about in my belly.
Then I had them and reality set in.
Luckily for us, we had family close by who were able (and willing) to take care of my children while my husband and I worked until they started school. Other families don’t fare so well.
I started this program a little over a year ago looking at the tough choices families make when they don’t have adequate help in childcare and I am happy to have Rasheed Malik, Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress on the program again for a follow up to talk about the recent study that looks at 22 states and what they call “Child Care deserts” You’d be surprised by what we found out.
