Daycare question..

So as we all now know, I'm going to be getting a job and getting out of this house pronto. But I have a question about daycare.

I am going to be using EC with my son as soon as I learn his signals, if I don't have a job before then, and I'm wondering does anybody know if daycare will even try to do EC with the babies if a parent tells them they use EC? Or are they totally clueless when it comes to EC? Also, my 3 year old is not yet fully potty trained, maybe halfway potty trained. Do they require children to be potty trained at a certain age? I have heard of some parents having difficulties with daycare and their not yet potty trained toddlers. Stuff like they would punish the child for wetting his/her pull up or diaper or panties, won't let the child wear a pull up or diaper, stuff like that. Do all daycares do that? Or just some? Because I really don't want my daughter being punished for something she cannot help. My middle child is 22 months, and yet another question, do they try to potty train the kids? Or, for that matter, try to force children that aren't potty trained TO potty? I want to potty train my kids based on when they are ready, not age based. So knowing this stuff is vital. Thanks in advance. :)

Edit (10:57PM): I also don't want the daycare teaching my children. Is there a way to tell them not to teach my children the stuff they usually teach them? Basically, all I want the daycare to do is watch my kids and play with them. I'm the only one allowed to teach my children anything, ever. Scratch the teaching part, I'll let the evil daycare people do whatever they want with my kids, as long as it doesn't involve Dora, Diego, or Barney. Those I forbid my kid watching or listening to. But, in similar vein, can I at least request that they not learn the pledge? I disagree with the pledge, and really I don't consider it important to pledge to an inanimate useless piece of cloth.

Oh, and does anybody have a link to a non-Christian religious vaccine exempt form for the state of South Carolina for my son? He doesn't have his vaccines, and will not ever be getting them, at least not until he's 2, and then it's on my schedule not theirs.

Edit 2(11:50PM): Before I forget, is there a way to go about telling them your son is intact and you don't want him ever being retracted without sounding offensive, and making sure they know that you want everybody that's in contact with your son to know that? I'm usually shy around people, and as such tend to sound offensive when I do manage to get something out.

They'll listen to my requests or I'll do whatever I can to make sure they lose the place, even if that means planting bugs in the building and calling DHEC. :)

Ok, now I do think you're a troll.

Just to reiterate: right then was when you crossed a line from "stupid and immature and misguided" to "batshit insane."

In case you wondered where the line was.

Honestly, don't care. They are my children, not theirs. And I've decided I'll give up on them not teaching my kids. But there will be no teaching them the pledge, I despise it.

unless that is in their curriculum. Good luck finding a place where it isn't.

Well then I'll tell my kids that the pledge is bad and never to say it, ever, and tell them not to require my kids to learn it or punish them because they refuse to say it.

That you can do. I don't agree with the shit in most religions. I certainly make sure to teach my son about them though. I would hate for him to walk around like he is an ignorant ass not knowing things that everyone else knows. He goes to the YMCA, I just make sure that he knows about our religion to balance out the Christianity he is being taught.I made sure he learned all the Sunday school stories that everyone knows about. He would miss out on a lot of pop culture references with out knowing them.

When I was in school, I said the pledge (come from a long line of soldiers) I just left out the "under god" that was added in . I said the original pledge. I didn't make a big deal out of it and no one gave me any shit for it.

I'm going to be teaching my children religions as well. I'd be hoping they'd leave out the "Liberty and justice for all" part too. It should just be "We pledge allegiance to the flag of the USofA, and for which it stands" and leave it at that.

I'm probably going to regret this, but
I have to ask... What's wrong with "liberty and justice for all"?

So your version of "unschooling" includes ideological indocrtrination -- just EDGIIIII indoctrination opposed to that of the public schools.

I see. Tell us more about your unschooling plans!

Honestly, I don't even say the pledge. It's not even important in life. Not like any job--save for military--would even require you to know or say the pledge.

You're such a hypocrite. One line you want them to do what they want and to be kids, but the next breath you talk about how YOU prevent them from doing certain things because EVERYTHING IS CRAZY AND TEH EVILL112!@!1

You are mentally ill.

I am with this comment. The bitch has ISSUES.

...that is so sad. Some people might have an excellent business but because it doesn't agree with YOU (one of, say, 50 parents who have kids there), you're gonna try to get them to be shut down. Way to go with the maturity. "It doesn't agree with me, so I'm gonna get rid of it!"
