Dear PoPville – Is DC Family Friendly?

“Dear PoPville,

Now that my husband and I and parents, our perspective on DC has changed drastically. Between the complete lack of affordable childcare for most people (neither of our jobs sponsor care), the seeming lack of flexible jobs, weird public school lottery systems, and constantly taking way too long to get anywhere via car (if you move to the burbs) it just gets more and more frustrating to deal with when you add a baby into it. So we have decided to move. Not just to the burbs but away from DC.

So I am interested – do PoPvillers think DC is family friendly? Why or why not? Has your perspective changed?”
