    I take my LO to daycare in the mornings it is about 30 there and 30 in the afternoon. My daughter will play with toys, sleep, sing me songs. I dont think it is bad for them at all they are just sitting. And unless they are getting restless it shouldnt be a big deal. Not all parents are able to stay at home and not work and we do what we have to. The children are getting enough stimulation when not in the car it shouldnt effect them
