I was emailing with a friend recently who lives in a state that is still very closed, and she noted (as I’ve seen readers note anonymously in the comments!) that they couldn’t do the “two working parents and no childcare” thing and quietly brought back their nanny, who now lives with them during the week and goes home on weekends, driven by my friend’s husband. I think a lot of people are doing similar things — quietly — and so I thought we’d take an anonymous poll. What are you doing for childcare right now? As states open up, what are you planning to do for the summer? (I debated adding a separate “screentime/running wild” option, but really, isn’t that included in half of the answer options anyway?)
(The first poll is below; if you can’t see it please try this link…)
And let’s take a second one — what are you planning to do for childcare over the summer? If your daycare is open, will you send your children? If camps are open, will you send them? (If you can’t see the second poll, please try this link…)
Do tell, ladies — what are you doing now, and planning to do in this summer?
