The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983,  p 22
...it is clear that nonattachment or disrupted attachment, particularly during the first two or three years of life, can produce retarded development and emotional deficits.
Reports that non-orphaned round-the-clock day care children in the Eastern Bloc* (Communist) countries showed signs of deprivation suggest that the amount of separation from parents can be a critical factor. These children, who stayed at the day care centers from Monday morning until Friday night, were unable to laugh and showed other signs of deprivation.

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983, p 27
Although the quality of...day care centers varies considerably, the number of hours a child spends away from parents is a very important consideration. The best-quality group care is no substitute for the bonding process with caring parents.

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983, p 28
One disadvantage of day care centers, profit and non-profit* alike, is that, like any institution, they involve a certain amount of regimentation. A center can rarely accommodate toddlers who need a longer, shorter, or earlier nap than their peers. A child's individual rhythms must be subjugated to the group's schedule.
...this lack of flexibility can be very hard on children.
One of the authors was in a county-run center and heard a preschooler wailing in the bathroom. As she approached to see what the problem was she heard the staff person standing over the child saying, "This is peeing time, so you are going to pee."
*Note:  A so-called 'not-for-profit' organization is not prohibited from making a profit!  (There are limitations on what it can do with its profits, however)

Periodically stories (of abuse) hit the newspapers...
County licensing agencies usually rely on complaints to detect a problem, but parents are often hesitant to file a complaint and want to believe Tommy did get that bruise from a fall.

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983,  p 31

Good day care versus bad day care is not the primary issue. Full-time day care, good or bad, can and usually does interfere with the fundamental emotional development of young children and the formation of a close attachment to their parents.
