If you think parents perusing childcares and preschools for their unnamed, unborn babies is a joke, think again. A recent piece in The Wall Street Journal focused on the ridiculous measures parents resort to in competitive parts of the country and dubbed it the brat race. It said:
As competition for good child care intensifies, parents in many regions are finding themselves on long wait lists, particularly for infant and toddler care; some are trying to nail down slots even before their babies are conceived. The trend poses a challenge for parents, who may not know how far to plan ahead and how to navigate the wait lists.
Did you put your child on a premature wait list for childcare or preschool?
