Has anyone heard of parent swap? Iâ€™m considering the idea and want to know what other people think about it. Basically, the concept is, existing parent/s look after your child plus their own on one day, and you do likewise for them on another day. Thereâ€™s no payment â€“ itâ€™s a tit for tat arrangement with other parents around the neighbourhood.
I want to start my own family soon and think I would do it provided, there are safeguards in place, like meeting and getting to know the other parent, setting out a schedule for the day(s) and agreeing to a level of care that weâ€™re both happy with. Would other people also consider this option, or am I being way too adventurous??
