"The limits of the welfare state"
by Jonas Himmelstrand, The National Post   (Ontario, Canada), 26-Apr-11
Then there are the questions about the social toll Sweden's childcare system is taking. Sweden has offered a comprehensive daycare system since 1975...negative outcomes for children and adolescents are on the rise in areas of health and behaviour. Psychosomatic disorders and mild psychological problems are escalating among Swedish youth at a faster rate than in any of 11 comparable European countries. Behaviour problems in Swedish classrooms are among the worst in Europe. In spite of high funding levels, group size and the child-to-adult ratio continue to increase.
Making childrearing a state responsibility has not proven to be a success. Canadians should carefully consider all of the available facts before looking to Sweden as a model for childcare.

"President Obama's folly" by Cal Thomas, The Washington Examiner, 12-Sep-2011
There was a time in America not too long ago when people mostly looked out for themselves and their relatives. Parents cared for their children when they were little and the children returned the favor when their parents got old. Now we dump the kids in day care and they return the favor by dumping their elderly parents in nursing homes. The biblical commandment about honoring your mother and father was once taken seriously. Now it's the government's responsibility because too many think we are constitutionally mandated to be free of "burdens."

"Putting baby in nursery 'could raise its risk of heart disease' because it sends stress levels soaring", by Fiona Macrae, The Daily Mail, (Britain), 12-Sep 2011
Sending babies and toddlers to day-care could do untold damage to the development of their brains and their future health, a leading psychologist has claimed.
Aric Sigman, a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, has warned that spending long periods being cared for by strangers in the first years of life can send levels of stress hormones soaring.
This could raise the odds of a host of problems, from coughs and colds in the short-term, to heart disease in the years to come.
Dr Sigman, who has worked with the Department of Health on education campaigns, said that the emphasis on women’s rights, including the right to return to work after becoming a mother, means that the potential dangers of day-care are ignored.
He added: ‘The uncomfortable question remains: which is better for a young child during weekdays – the biological mother or a paid carer at an institution?’

"Does day care damage your baby? One mother's view..." by Lucy Cavendish, The Daily Telegraph (Britain), 13-Sep-2011 On the first day, when I dropped him off, baby Raymond screamed his head off. “Oh, don’t worry,” said Gemma, taking him from me, “he’ll get used to it.” Except he didn’t. Every time I dropped him off, he would pummel his little feet against me and cling and scream. As Gemma took him, he would give me such a desperately panicked look, it would make me want to turn around and spirit the two of us back home again.
“Is this normal?” I asked. “Oh, yes,” said Gemma, firmly prising Raymond from my grasp. “He’ll adjust. They all do.”

By the fourth week, he had adjusted somewhat, so I convinced myself that Raymond was enjoying nursery. Still, I had misgivings. I felt guilty that he wasn’t getting the one-to-one attention I felt he deserved. I was concerned about the regulation cots lined up against the wall, but reasoned it was the best option I had. After all, thousands of women drop their babies and pre-schoolers off at nurseries every day. How bad could it be?

Then, one day, I went to pick Raymond up early. I turned up at the nursery and, looking through the window, saw Raymond standing in his cot, absolutely sobbing. His face had gone red. I waited for someone to go and comfort him, but no one moved a muscle. All the staff were in the corner taking no notice. He wasn’t the only baby crying. Four more were bellowing their heads off. I stormed into the room, picked Raymond up and asked Gemma what on earth she and her staff thought they were doing.

“It’s their quiet time,” she explained. “We don’t pick them up during quiet time.” “He was crying,” I said. “He needs cuddling.” She said that the nursery had rules and regulations. “I’m sorry,” she said, “but that’s how we get the children to adjust.”

This is the problem with nursery care; one size has to fit all. Staff have to stick to a routine in order to survive day-in, day-out with a rotating set of children. The trouble is, children don’t work this way. They are all different, with their different characteristics and needs. What I witnessed is something I have heard from other parents time and time again. Essentially, many feel let down by the quality of care and the lack of real affection shown to their children by day-care staff.
