Default Tax Write Off Question for Tom

I am considering hiring a children's ride-share company to pick up and bring my dd to my program after-school, could I write off this as a business expense? And if I could write this off what category would it go under.... ?

I have always been able to pick up my dd but now with young children in my care I will not be able to do that...

I am thinking the ride-share will be easier than hiring an assistant so I can go get my dd or hiring an assistant or individual to go pick up my dd. Eventually I would like an assistant but am not ready for one at this point.

You can't deduct the cost of transporting your own child, it's considered a personal expense.
