To the editor: I am writing this in the hope someone has found a solution to a problem that is too common in our area.
My daughter and son-in-law are expecting their first child, a girl, in October. They both work full time to make ends meet. They are one of the many lower- to middle-class young couples in our area faced with the cost of day care.
Our daughter has called local day cares, and weekly prices range from $120-$160 per week. I have checked to see if they are eligible for any child-care assistance and, of course, they are not.
