This paper argues that extended hours at daycare facilities are essential to working parents in this day and age, where the 9-5 job has gone the way of the single-income, two-parent family. The writer asserts that, in order to give hard-working parents at least some of the respect shown by European nations to their working parents, it is necessary to meet the demand for 24-hour care created by our own desire for a 24-hour service economy. The writer further maintains that daycare can provide the benefits to children's psychological well-being. Thus increased access to daycare will be a boon, not a bane, for American society. The writer strongly argues that it is imperative that extended hours become a priority at daycare facilities all over the nation.
