Being There: The Benefits of a Stay-at-Home Parent
by Isabelle Fox with Norman M. Losenz 1996
page
70
But perhaps the most convincing evidence of the link between caregiver roulette and poor school performance comes from a long-term study conducted...at the University of North Carolina…
The study supplies convincing evidence that early exposure, at age three months to such “center” based day care (with the inevitable use of multiple changing caregivers), produces results that are long-term and unfortunate: the children showed more aggressive behavior. They were more likely to “hit, kick and push” than other children. They were also more likely to “threaten, swear and argue.”
Teachers also noted that children in this group were less likely to walk away to “avoid or extract themselves from situations that could lead to aggression.” Their teachers were more likely to describe these children as having “as serious deficit in social behavior.”

On the other hand, the quality of the relationship between (the child and his caregiver), though positive, is not as intense. It is more “custodial.” (The daycare worker), although pleasant and kind, may not have the same motivation required to expand (the child’s) range of interests, or to stimulate him. (She) feels her job is done—and done well—if she protects the child from injury, comforts him when he is unhappy, and cares for his physical needs.

Clearly, it is neither fair nor logical to expect even a nurturing (daycare worker) caregiver…to provide the quality of care comparable to that of a parent…
It is one thing to protect a child from physical harm, and to comfort and feed him and return him safely to his parents at night. It is quite another to stimulate him, to teach him about the many things in his world, to foster his creativity, and to encourage a sense of joie de vivre.

“There is a large and growing body of evidence that day care is a breeding ground for infectious diseases. The mere act of separating an infant from his mother may suppress the immune system and make the child more vulnerable to disease.
