welll, my daugter did not go to school until pre-k and this was until she was 5 and a half, but ishe went since she was 2 to ballet, gymnastics and ice skating, plenty places to get interact with kids, and today almost 7 she is a superb skater in competitions getting a lot of medals and first places, so it is many ways to have your kids to play with other kids.

Well I have a three year old kid and now i see the advantages to go to day care because now he learns, now he plays, he paint, he play games, he socialize with other kids, before that he was only there because I cannot have him at home, but he did only a few things during the year...nothing mucht because he was to little

And you can do that in Denmark too - but as Lilla so rightly pointed out there are cultural difference from country to country - nearly all mothers work here. I have three kids and I have worked all the time, so if one of my girls wanted to go ice skating it had to be during the weekend or after 5 p.m - after an already long day.
No, if small children here are to play with other kids at the best time of day, the choice is nursery school/kindergarten.

It does not only depend on the parents. The structure of a particular country and the way the labour marked in this country is regulated is even more important when it comes to the possible choices parents can make.

According to The Danish Ministry of Empolyment Beskæftigelsesministeriet - Nøgletal in 2004 the participation rate for men was 79,7 % and for women it was 73,4 %. (The participation rate is the amount of 16 - 66 - year-olds, who is employed or temporarily unemploy - compared to the entire population). The entire structure of the Danish welfaresystem is build upon regulations that makes it more or less impossible for a houshold to exist unless both parents work. One income simply isn't sufficient if you want to have a life without financial difficulties.

According to this link http: http://www.kvinfo.dk/side/560/article/748/ the goal for the EU is a participation rate for women at 60% by the end of 2010. Denmark has the highest participation rate for women in Europe. Sweden and Finland comes in second. At the bottom is Malta, Italy and Greece with a participation rate on 33 % - 46%.

A very high participation rate for both women and men in at country also makes a high demand for nursery schools/kindergardens and it also influences the decisions of the minority of parents who does not work. If you want your small children to be among other small children during the daytime, they have to be enrolled at a nursery school/kindegarden. But as a nonworking parent one has the luxury of only needing them to be there parttime if one wishes so.

I do not know whether the later is the case with Christian and Isabella - but I would think so........

Of cause it is possible for non-working parents and working parents to let their small children meet with other small children in the weekend or after 5 p.m. But as UserDane wrote the later would be after an already long day (for both the vast majority of the small children and their parents as well).

Furthermore it is not a choice for danish parents to leave their small children in the care of grandparents while going to work - as both grandparents are working as well. According to the link underneath the average age of withdrawal from the labour market in Denmark in 2005 was for women 60.1 and for men 62.2.

I just read the sweetest thing about Christian today. According to an interview with Mary quoted at www.svenskdamtidning.se , Christian has begun asking why he doesn't have a surname like the other children at nursery school.
I guess he is old enough to start noticing that he is different. I wonder how you would explain that to such a small child.

I don't know the reason. I far as I know Danish Kings and Queens never have had surnames.............

Perhaps some other posters have an answer.

I think that no King or Queen have a surname that they use. However, they do all have a family name that denotes which familial house they come from. I think that all Kings/Queens, at least in the western monarchies, sign their first names with an R behind it for Rex/Regina the latin for King/Queen.

But I don't think they have ever used Glcksburg as a surname the same way William and Harry has used Windsor.

William & Harry actually use "Wales", not Windsor (eg on their army badges). Charles, Anne etc use "Mountbatten-Windsor".

Maybe they will use Monpezat since Fred only recently became the Count of Monpezat? Henrik would be pleased I guess ....

Thanks for the enlightening, Duke of Marmalade . I had the "using of Winsor" from a previous post made by another member.

yes I recall that but i believe it was more like an "inkognito" thing when frederik attended events where he didn't want to be recognized by name.

you're welcome lilla. yes they use their father's title as surname (william recently became "flying officer wales"). maybe a danish member recalls what name frederik used when he was in the army? i know felipe of spain used "borbon", his father's name, and not "asturias" (following the british example). sometimes i think royals can pick and chose and use as a surname what they want

I don't know. Actually I don't think he used any other name but his own: Frederik Andr Henrik Christian. I know what he was called as a nickname in the army: Pingo .

About the using of "Henriksen". I think he used that surname when studying at Harvard University. It was an "inkognito" thing in order not to be recognized as a CP.
