How to End 'Momism': Free Day Care and Less Work! by Daniel Indiviglio, The Atlantic, 29 Jun 2011

 

Universal Day Care - The premise here is that the taxpayers should pay not only for the elementary through high school education of children, but also for their care from virtually the moment they're born. There are a few big practical problems with this idea. First, it would drastically change the current day care industry. Different day care providers in different areas charge different fees for their services. Does the government provide vouchers? Will tax credits work?
Neither of these possibilities seems particularly likely if fair and equal access to day care is sought. Instead the government would have to create public day care facilities, just like you have public schools. Raise your hand if you want the government to take care of your baby. I suspect most people reading this kept their hands down. The government can't even balance its checkbook. I wouldn't let it watch my dog.
Universal day care shifts U.S. child care even further in the collectivist direction...

Mother Superior? The biological effects of day care, by Dr. Aric Sigman, The Biologist, 58(3) 28-32, Sep 2011. The accepted starting point for any national discussion of childcare is one of a "work-childcare balance" involving "affordable day care". Even many of those forging academic careers in the study of day care are apparently being held back by their own young children. "Tiny tots can prove formidable foes* to a woman's academic career aspirations...states a Special Report in Nature 2005"

*Very alliterative, but does this person really think young children are enemies ( formidable foes)? -- ed.
Mother Superior? The biological effects of day care, by Dr. Aric Sigman, The Biologist, 58(3) p29, Sep 2011. But day care is an evolutionary novelty bearing no resemblance to childcare throughout history or in modern traditional societies. Understanding the effects day care has on children has been hindered by bitter politicised arguments involving womens's rights, governmental desire for economic growth, maternal guilt and the media's portrayal of day care study findings. Some researchers who have voiced concerns about the effects of day care have been attacked...
However, the uncomfortable question remains--which is better for a young child during weekdays: the biological mother or a paid carer at an institution?

Mother Superior? The biological effects of day care, by Dr. Aric Sigman, The Biologist, 58(3) p29, Sep 2011. But what has proved elusive is an understanding of how the young child is affected emotionally and biologically, and how they experience day care while they are actually there. Babies can't speak and toddlers have limited verbal abilities...

Mother Superior? The biological effects of day care, by Dr. Aric Sigman, The Biologist, 58(3) p31, Sep 2011. Attending a childcare centre, and the consequent separation from parents, is a significant source of stress for many young children.
And the negative effects of day care may be long lasting.

Mother Superior? The biological effects of day care, by Dr. Aric Sigman, The Biologist, 58(3) p32, Sep 2011. And so, as we embrace early day care ever further, we should remind ourselves that when it comes to an issue of such fundamental importance we must continue to adhere to that ancient medical imperative, "First do no harm", and assume that mother knows best.

Will America Ever Be Ready for the Truth about Daycare?,
by Suzanne Venker, National Review Online,
1 Feb 2012.
Besides abortion, no subject in America is more divisive than daycare — that’s why it’s rarely discussed in the media. That, and the fact that most of the women in the media rely on substitute care for their babies and toddlers in order to do what they do every day; thus, they’re hardly in a position to address the matter in an unbiased manner.
“Academics, pediatricians, and other experts have learned to keep a prudent silence about the risks of day care, and so it is the daycare advocates — and only the advocates we hear from on our television screens and in our parenting magazines,” writes Diane Fisher, P.D.

Will America Ever Be Ready for the Truth about Daycare?,
by Suzanne Venker, National Review Online,
1 Feb 2012.

The truth is that daycare is one of the greatest tragedies of modern America. We’ve become immune to its reality because we have to. When something becomes a bona fide trend, sanctioned by the masses, what else can we do but succumb to it. So rather than face the truth, politicians and pundits talk about ways to improve it — as if it could be. “America suffers a growing national epidemic of parental absence and disconnection. ‘Quality’ in day care cannot solve the problem. It doesn’t even address it,” writes Dr. Fisher.
Even one of America’s premier child psychologists, Dr. Stanley Greenspan, says America has struggled to improve daycare for 20 years — to no avail.

Will America Ever Be Ready for the Truth about Daycare?,
by Suzanne Venker, National Review Online,
1 Feb 2012.
And (daycare is) far from harmless or beneficial to children. If you think it is, if you’ve bought in to the new American lexicon that says children in daycare are better socialized or, like President Obama suggests, better prepared for kindergarten, you’re burying your head in the sand in defense of someone you love. You know it. I know it. Why don’t we just say it?
