California child-carin’

https://story.californiasunday.com/child-care

Needless to say, the college student parents have the sweetest deal in terms of total child care, but there’s several family and friend arrangements among the profiles that add up to a fair amount of childcare as well.  And the one working couple with a f/t nanny, paying the full cost of childcare is pretty noticeably different than the other families.

  1. The ones with the parents helping out and the “aunties” are probably the more common arrangements.

    When I was 10, I was babysitting my little nieces (with adult supervision in the background) for my sis and BIL. I suspect in MC and higher communities, extended family as caregivers are much less common than in previous decades.

    That was interesting, though. Thanks for sharing it.
