BERLIN, GERMANY - JULY 17: A father and daughter walk in the city center on July 17, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. The German government recently passed a new law that will guarantee every child between 1 and 3 years old a spot in a child day care center (in German: a Kita, or Kindertagesstaette) starting August 1, 2013. Critics charge the law is based on faulty numbers and that both a shortage of facilities and nursery-school teachers will make the law impossible to implement. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
