We are a communications network of people working to better the lives of children. Through our efforts we endeavour to raise the social status of time devoted to caregiving and the anchor it provides, though unpaid, to a healthy society.

We focus on examining legal, financial and political obstacles that prevent parents from freedom to choose the child-rearing style they personally prefer, be it care by a neighbor,friend, relative, babysitter,parent in home-based office, tag-team parents, parent at home full-time, family day home, daycare or other.

We stand for valuing the role itself- regardless of income or marital status of parent. We stand for choice and equality.
