Science Shams & Bible Bloopers, How You're Being Hoodwinked by Know-Nothing "Experts" and Gassy "Authorities" by David Mills, 2000,
pg. 165-166
From Part II:  Pseudoscience affecting Children and the Family,
Chapter 7:  Myths of Parental Convenience
Myth:  Daycare is good for children because they participate in stimulating and educational activities and because they learn social skills through interacting with other children.
Fact:  The typical daycare center provides the stimulation and educational opportu
nity of a day in prison -- and spreads far more infection and communicable disease than the county jail.  Kids do not learn social skills through interacting with other kids, any more than children learn to play the piano through interacting with other musically illiterate children.  Children learn social skills through observing and emulating adult behavior.

Science Shams & Bible Bloopers, How You're Being Hoodwinked by Know-Nothing "Experts" and Gassy "Authorities" by David Mills, 2000,  pg. 166 Comment:  Never leave your child in the custody of a stranger.  The fact that a daycare center is "licensed" or "state approved" is meaningless.  Even child abusers can easily craft neatly-typed resumes with impressive-sounding references.

The Irreducible Needs of Children --What Every Child Must Have to Grow, Learn, and Flourish
 by T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. and Stanley I. Greenspan, M.D
.,  Perseus Publishing, Cambridge, MA 
2000,  Introduction, pg. xii
From the 1970s through the 1990s there has been a transformation of the attitudes of families towards raising their own children.  During this time, there has been a huge increase in the number of families giving up the care of babies, toddlers, and preschoolers to toddlers for 35 or more hours a week.  In other words, large numbers of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are spending the lion's share of their days in non-parental care.
More important than mere numbers are reports regarding the quality of this care.  These are not encouraging.  The most comprehensive study of the quality of day care reported that the vast majority of center-based care was not of high quality:  over 85 percent was not of high quality for preschool children and over 90 percent was not of high quality for infants and toddlers.
-- quoting S.W. Helburn et al. from "Cost, Quality, and Child Outcomes in Child Care Centers", University of Colorado, 1995. 
Category = Quality, Politics
