I think the idea of this survey is to gather what people naturally tend to lean towards rather than ifluence them with outside sources and research. It is interesting that most people think of all three options positively.

I think mistakes happen when caregivers aren't adequately supported in the home. Have respite care for caregivers in the community is so needed. Education would help as well. Free classes for the at home parent caregiver should be encouraged as well as short break in the day to give the caregiver time to run errands. It would be a lot easier to identify children and families that need more help.

i believe that people should provide care for people who do abuse and therapy for those old or young who had to live horrible circumstances and poverty. supporting families in the community around you would provide better ways of life for everyone. i know i might be repeatng myself but it is just whats on my mind, also all mothers should be allowed to be with there children while they are in an early developing stage it is proven to be better for the children and development.

you are wrong. Perhaps reading was not part of your child hood development program.

adults should be active participants in childcare and preschool education. Resources should be focused on raising awreness of parent education
so that adults understand available programs for themselves and their children.

I agree I think parents should be more aware of the opportunities they can give their kids but i think it's important for kids to be around a lot more dults than just thheir parents so they don't become too attatched.

While it takes a village, a pair of highly involved adults is best. Those closest to the child have the (most often) highest level of interest. As you step away towards community and then society, you tend towards less interest and lower outcomes. Still, a combination of all three, starting from the parents and then moving outward is needed to meet the needs of all children and their circumstances.

If we as individuals move away from materialistic desires, we would find that we each (for the most part) have at least some ability to spend time at home with our children when they are young.

the questions were flawed and being a psychology major it would need much more details. works for some people but some people it might seem radical. the best part was when the article said that we need to update the system, i agree, but what are good solutions?

All three approaches are needed to make sure that all children are given the best foundation in life possible. However, we can not only offer community support in the first five years of life. As a society we must make a committment to caring for our children from birth all the way through young adult hood. Only then will we be able to fully equip or children for their future without whom there is no future for us.

I think the first option is the best. there is no replacement for parents as the biggest influence in children's lives.

Even the best parents sometimes can't afford to spend lots of time with their children. We should provide support to families by making high quality childcare and other services available.

As an educator of students from low-income homes, I have witnessed the disparity between those students who had intellectually stimulating home lives BEFORE entering school and those who have not. I can see the evidence that those students who do not have the support during their early years are at a SEVERE disadvantage all the way through high school and even college - most kids will never catch up.

I totally agree, when kids start kindergarten there is a wide range of academic accomplishments in children and grouping them all in one classroom does a disservice to all of them. Kids should be 'ability or knowledge' grouped so that they can best get their needs met. My son was reading chapter books when he entered kindergarten yet was forced to sit thru learning abc's. I felt forced into homeschooling him so that he could keep learning. It has worked out so far but was not what i wanted for him in the beginning. Some kids in that room were bored and others overwhelmed and behind. Was not a good way to help every child reach their full potential. It's too bad that ability grouping kids doesn't really start to happen until middle school or later, which way too late in terms of maximizing a childs potential.

It is a huge waste of talent to allow children from low income families to enter kindergrten unprepared.

For example, adults and children need exposure to what the Science Museum of Minnesota offers. It is so illuminating!! Increase access of entire families with low income (not just school classes) so that parents have an opportunity to get excited about and understand opportunities for learning that are outside their experience, and see their get excited about science. Science offers solutions to our pressing problems.

the ideas here are all better theana leaving things the way they are now but at the same all of them have their flaws and lots of people will fight them. parents should not be left to their own devises because some parents arent equiped to handel children but the goverment can only do so much before it becomes un helpful vs. helpful
