After-School Program Cuts = Stress

As parents, we have so many details to attend to with our kiddies going back to school. For working parents, there's the added layer of securing after-school childcare or activities. This article about cuts in a New York, city-funded daycare center hits home.

Seems lately, there have been many articles about after-school programs being slashed, due to budget cuts. The result: scrambling and stressed out parents! We have heard of some parents hiring after school tutors/babysitters to come to their house. But that often cancels out their income. It's quite a dilemma.

Curious to hear if you have experienced this your area. What are parents doing to fill the childcare void? Join our community and jump into the working parents discussion. Share your thoughts, ideas, and solutions... or just vent!
