Being There: The Benefits of a Stay-at-Home Parent
by Isabelle Fox with Norman M. Losenz 1996
page 64
The majority of American children who are in child care centers spend many hours in mediocre quality setting that are detrimental to their development…[T]he American public, although adoring young children…blindly engages in self-deception about child care quality so great it could be deemed societal child neglect.”

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

Child-care authority Professor Burton White of Harvard University put it this way: “After more than 20 years of research on how children develop well, I would not think of putting a child of my own into any substitute care program on a full time basis, especially a (day care) center based program.”

In fact, study after study that I have reviewed reveals that substitute care facilities, whether run-of-the mill day-care centers or high quality university-based centers…often seem to share one common problem: caregivers in such settings change very frequently. And it is quite irrelevant to the children involved whether such changes are described as: “lack of stability,” “turnover of child-care personnel,” or “poor quality day care”.
It is the unpredictability of the environment that causes the distress for infants and toddlers.

Day care, whether rendered by the most prestigious university centers…often suffers from one important defect: the factor I call caregiver roulette.
The infant or toddler never knows in whose arms he or she will land.
When these arms change frequently, the children are more likely to experience emotional distress with the concomitant potential for problems later in life. This is especially true if they experience multiple losses of the persons who care for them.

(Dr. Jay Belsky) concluded “that entry into (daycare) in the first year of life is a risk factor for the development of insecure avoidant attachments in infancy, and heightened aggressiveness, non-compliance and withdrawal in the preschool and early school years.
