Regulators who oversee child care, however, don't see it as charity. Days after the start of the new school year, Snyder received a letter from the Michigan Department of Human Services warning her that if she continued, she'd be violating a law aimed at the operators of unlicensed day care centers.
Ridiculous. I can't imagine why someone would issue a complaint...but heaven forbid that we actually help each other!
