Quote/Comment

How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James*,  2010, p114
*British clinical psychologist, journalist, bestselling book author, and television documentary producer. and presenter
...instead of providing day care the money could have been used to support those mothers who wanted to care for their babies themselves to do so.
...Instead of hugely expensive shiny new children's centres, instead of bricks and mortar, the money should have been spent on maximizing the chances of under-threes receiving l-o-v-e from a single adult, with one carer per child

How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p114-115 If you are a mother who can afford options, I would urge you to question why you are using day care. Of course it is true that, while aggressiveness, disobedience, hyperactivity and insecurity may be a higher risk from day care...
My key point is that day care is based on the misconception that under-threes enjoy the company of their peers and the failure to grasp just how important is the undivided attention of a responsive, tuned-in adult. Day care may dilute creativity...

How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p274 ...there is no evidence that day care is advantageous to children from middle-class families, and there is considerable evidence that it increases the risk of dysregulated cortisol levels, aggression, disobedience and emotional insecurity, especially if the care is of low quality. Unfortunately, this latter is the norm in the United States and Britain.
Category = Development, Quality
How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p277 Thus far, results from Britain's Sure Start* programme have been desperately disappointing, apparently actually leading to worse outcomes for children from the most disadvantaged homes (such as low-income single mothers)...
*A UK government child care initiative similar to the Head Start programme in the United States and is also comparable to Australia Head Start and Ontario's Early Years Plan.
Category = Development, Quality
How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p279 ...where (mothers) are middle-class, in most cases they leave their child in the company of substitutes who are young women, usually with much less education and lower IQs than them. All the evidence on what enables a child to perform well would predict that doing so would reduce its performance - as it does.
Category = Development
How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p279 That high-quality day care...can improve cognitive performance in children of low-income families is not a case for middle-class parents to opt for it.
The fact is, anyway, that most day care is not high-quality. When you put this together with the evidence you are about to read about the proven emotional problems caused by day care, there seems no case whatever for opting for day care if you are a middle-class parent and seeking substitute care.
Category = Development, Quality
How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p279-280 Cortisol is the stress hormone secreted when a person feels under threat, leading to fight or flight in animals, and to aggression or hyperactivity, or withdrawal, in humans. As we shall see, there is now overwhelming evidence that day care causes children to have abnormal cortisol levels, probably increasing the risk of behavioural problems like aggression, fearfulness and hyperactivity.
Category = Behavior, Disease
How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p282 That day care and cortisol dysregulation have been so consistently shown to correlate strongly implies that there is something about day care which is stressful.
Category = Behavior, Disease
How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p282 Cortisol is known to dampen the immune system and this may partly explain the well-established fact that toddlers in day care suffer much more physical illness than those raised at home; of course, exposure to so many other children's infections is also a reason. but the worry becomes considerably greater when you learn the impact of day care on cortisol levels continues long after early childhood.
Category = Behavior, Disease
How Not to F*** Them Up by Oliver James,  2010, p286 While it would take a brave politician to say so, the fact is that violence in the United States grew massively following the period in which increasing numbers of children were spending their early years in daycare. There are many reasons for this, but it is at least plausible that one of them is that day care increased the proportion of the population that were angry, a key precursor to violence. Indeed, other studies suggest a connection between adult violence an non-maternal care...
