Preschool Offers Free Babysitting to Parents Who Want to Have Sex

OMG 12

maternity wardIf parents know one thing, it's that after babies, finding time to do any uninterrupted baby-making activities becomes more and more challenging. Some child care facilities have realized how difficult it can be, so they're providing free child care so that parents can get it on. Seriously.

Where do you sign up, right? Well, you have to go to Denmark, as that's where the group of nurseries have come up with this creative offering for free "quality copulation time". The reason why they're doing it isn't just because they think parents deserve some time for sex, but rather because they want them to make more babies so they can stay in business.

According to the BBC the birth rate of the country is one of the lowest in the world, and the nurseries are seeing a declining number of kids enrolling. So in fear for their jobs, they came up with this creative solution to increase funding.

Dorte Nyman of the Grasshoppers kindergarten told the BBC, "Without money we can't look after the children well, and if there aren't enough children, there are not enough jobs for our workers."

So seven Danish kindergartens got together and decided to do something about it, and last Thursday they held the first two-hour party during which time there was food, music, and fun for the children. For parents, it was straight to bed ... if all went according to plan.

Of course, enforcing the intent of the childcare offering isn't really doable, and some parents flat out said they won't use the time as intended. ''Lots say, 'We'll bring our children to the party but you won't be getting any more children out of us,''' Nyman said. But hey, it's worth a try I guess. Of course, there's the question of whether two people who are so busy they can't carve out time for hanky panky should be bringing another child into their lives, but it's an offer that's pretty hard to refuse, and who knows what could happen.

Now if only they'd throw in some free housecleaning, laundry services, and someone to do the cooking, carpool, and everything else that gets in the way of married sex, then they may well get a population boom going.

What do you think of this idea -- crazy or brilliant?

I think it's brilliant. Though I did just have a vision of a really awkward conversation a few years down the line when the kids realize every time they goes to daycare they get another younger sibling. ;)

I personally think that is a brilliant idea !

WOW.. So Americans get more stupid by the minute it seems. If this is what the people have come up with then they shouldnt be having anymore kids begin with. Ok well if you can not afford a babysitter to take you wife/ g/f / hopfully not pregnant teen out on a date then, you probably cannot afford to have more children let alone afford a daycare for them to begin with. Or wait this might blow you away with this crazy idea. ITS CALLED BEDTIME. "Right" put your kids to bed by 8 or 9 and make time for your husband/wife. Come on people teenagers have be sneaking around for years getting knocked up. Us adults can figure this out. Or may God help us.

Honestly, I'm torn.  From a parent's perspective, any free babysitting for some quality time (sex or no sex) with my hubby is great. From a woman's perspective... I don't want some company trying to coerce (?) me into having a child if I haven't made that decision for myself. Accidents happen.  I don't know the politics in Denmark, but this could just as easily cause the rise in abortion rates, or in sterilization procedures.  Bottom line, offer the babysitting, just stay out of the bedroom.

Brittany it seems as though maybe you missed a part of the article. This isn't in America. This is in Denmark. Believe me, there is no shortage of babies here. =) 


I think it's a well intentioned idea, but if my son went to daycare and they offered something like this, I'd probably take him, but it's unlikely that the time would be used for sex. It would be a two hour mini-vacation lol. I'd get homework done, and the house clean without someone tearing toys up from the other end. Still, its well meaning-ed.

LOL looks like Brittany is the one getting more stupid by the minute ;-)
