What about the kids?

In the episodes about egalitarian relationships the guest author describes “slogging through” the toddler years until your children are in school in terms of paying for childcare so one can work. What about the children? What does the research say about daycare vs shared parenting for children in their formative years? My spouse and I chose to be parents and considered what was best for our children and enjoyed raising them. We had to piece together childcare work education and home life. Having it all and putting careers first has consequences both for children and parents.
