What is best for a toddler whose mommy can’t be at home with him? Author Marilyn J. Corliss believes the next best thing to the mommy being at home and raising her own child is home daycare. But not all daycares can give a child the best child care needed.

In her book, “The Message”, Corliss leaves no holds barred as she gives an honestly candid look of the experiences of real in-home day care providers—the good, the bad, and the ugly. She reveals the gritty details and challenges of starting and maintaining a daycare. Starting a daycare is not as easy as it sounds, even for those who are used to caring for children. People are wired differently, thus, they deal with the many unexpected situations that running a day care can bring in various ways.

Unlike other books about daycare, “The Message” doesn’t sugarcoat facts but tell reality as it is. Corliss shares experiences both funny and shocking in this informative and easy to read book. Designed for all new and experienced providers, this reference will help them to understand that they are not alone and to be aware of how other providers feel and endure the shortcomings of the day care industry. It will also enlighten parents of children placed in day care or considering childcare on the quality of care that their child will experience.
