Being There: The Benefits of a Stay-at-Home Parent
by Isabelle Fox with Norman M. Losenz 1996
pages 1-2

 
Each day, millions of American infants and toddlers face a terrifying trauma of which few parents are aware.
Consider the feelings of fright and helplessness in an infant who cannot talk or understand words, who cannot protect himself or herself against the approach of a stranger—a new caregiver whose voice, looks, smell, and touch are unfamiliar. Suddenly, with no explanation nor the ability to understand one, the child is confronted with a completely different person in place of the mother or other unfamiliar caregiver with whom the child was beginning to develop an all-important bond and attachment.

But sadly, continuity of care is today increasingly being denied to most American infants. Primary caregivers for pre-verbal infants, whether at home or in a day-care center, come and go with unfortunate frequency. The rate of turnover…is phenomenal.
Moreover, few of us are aware of the long-term implications of these frequent changes. Infants cannot be prepared for these changes because they lack the ability to understand words until they are about two years old. But by that age, the constant change of primary caregivers has already been experienced by the child as a profound emotional loss. This sense of loss extends its negative influence over the child’s development for decades to come.

The consequences of frequent changes of caregivers have also been largely unappreciated. They include delinquency, school dropouts, depression, substance abuse, and difficulties with intimacy. These problems may not be obvious until many years have passed. Thus, parents do not see—or accept—the causal connection between changing caregivers during infancy and toddlerhood, and negative behavior years later.

Yet, as psychologist Jay Belsky noted when he commented upon the effects of placing infants in day care: “A relatively persuasive circumstantial case can be made that early infant care may be associated with increased avoidance of mother, possibly to the point of greater insecurity in the attachment relationship, and that such care may be associated with diminished compliance an cooperation with adults, increased aggressiveness and possibly even greater social maladjustment in the preschool and early school-age years.
