I am really glad that I read the book, because we move every three years and setting up a co-op is a great way to engage with other moms and form friendships. It is always great to ask friends to watch my kids at times when I have doctors appointments where the kids can not attend, but there is always the need to remember that I need to offer a favor back. It is not a burden to do that for a friend, but the remembering part can be nagging. I begin to feel guilty if I wait too long to reciprocate. With a co-op, there is no need to remember or keep track of what you owe to someone else, because each member keeps track of their own tickets (tickets determine how many hours of babysitting you have to use).
What mom doesn't need a break now and then? After caring for twin infants along with my two older kiddos, I know I could definitely gain from having access to a co-op, plus it would make me feel good knowing that I will always be able to help other moms out by watching their children as well. It is a win-win for all involved.
