Children will gladly take advantage of the fact their caretakers are blind and "sneak out" to explore outside of their boundaries when they are told not to do so. Granted, blind people do have their rights but this is opening a whole can of worms when they wish to operate a daycare for children. What if there was a fire and they cannot do a head count because the shrill of the fire alarm freaks the children out so much, they run around crying & screaming? This is when the DCFS has to step in and I don't blame them one bit.

Perhaps there is an understanding that a sighted person has to be there at all times? Blind couples do raise children of their own you know. And perhaps most of the children will be past potty training age? I did not read the url, I need to go back and read it, I guess.

Granted, it would make much more sense if the article mentioned more details but it was a short one. I agree with you about having a sighted staff member to assist the blind couple. Keep in mind that this is a landmark case represented by a blind attorney as well.

QUOTE
Christine Hutchinson said she and her husband, Thomas, will move ahead with plans to open a facility, although they are worried they will be hounded by inspectors looking for problems.


Mrs. Hutchinson needs to realise that the inspectors are well within their rights to inspect the state-approved facility, as long as it is not to instigate any problems, because all daycare facilities have to submit to state inspections.

Edit- corrected quote

I love your avatar, Patty! Perhaps the daycare is gonna be for blind kids only? I wonder why there was such a shortage of information?

Thanks girl! (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) I even tried googling for more information but I'm perplexed as to why there's limited information about this when it's a landmark case.

Deaf Couple Allowed To Open Day Care?

I don't know if its exist somewhere, imagine what will they think of it? Their first reaction will be "What if they can't hear my baby crying?" My baby scream for a help, they didn't came forward?

My teacher show me a fine scar on her groin because she was babysitter by a blind Aunty as her mother was very ill, her dad was away with war, and she put a safety pin in her tummy, she was pain for hours until her mother saw a soaked wet nappy with blood everywhere!!

Most blind couple bring up sight children and they turn out to be fine. (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

'Interesting to be sure. Well the disposable diapers are "made" for blind people, you might say! I used cloth diapers and I made them MYSELF out of double napped diaper flannel.

Mum used flannel blankets and cut them into squares and we all were just fine and dandy with them!! Mum would use the fancy disposable diapers whenever we went out. I still tell my friends that are struggling with money to cut up two brand new flannel blankets and use them as nappies & use disposables when they go out. It works just as fine and saves a lot of money.

We did not have disposable diapers when my kids were babies. Not that I knew of anyway! I hung my diapers on the line to dry and they smelled so good when they came in, ready to be folded! But I DID have an automatic washer from Sears! I thought I was rich!

When I was little, my nappy is made of muslin and terry-towel together, it is rare to find muslin nappy here, it is like a cheesecloth but very fine and softer fabric.

I was told back in 1960s, family own washing machine and fridge are well off.

Today people who own a dishwasher are well off!
