What does religious doctrine say about Daycare? p2

Christianity and Daycare
(aka Christian Daycare or Bible Daycare)

Next à

An A.P. mother quotes the words of Jesus Christ Himself in her following comment about daycare that makes an unflattering analogy between daycare workers and hired hands:
Christian daycare or childcare, What would Jesus say about daycare or childcare? this Bible Verse when thinking about using Day Care (or other child care)":
'The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away.
Then the w
olf attacks the flock and scatters it.
The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep'

(John 10:12-13)

-- from Lisa,  author of the "Lisa's Joyful Parenting Page", Feb. 2004?,
(website is no longer at:
The Catholic Bishop of Augsburg, Walter Mixa called government proposals to expand childcare facilities in Germany "harmful for children and families." Mixa said the plans enticed women with federal aid to entrust their children to state care shortly after birth, degrading women to "birthing machines” (Gebärmaschine).

…Cologne's…cardinal Joachim Meisner said he agreed with Mixa. He said children should be raised in the family, and not in daycare.
"In the bible, nurseries are actually just a temporary solution," Meisner told the Catholic radio station Domradio. "If you turn it into a permanent institution, quasi as an alternative to the family, then this is a misguided development."
-- 22 February 2007, Deutsche Welle (A German international broadcaster, similar to the BBC World Service, Voice of America, etc.)

In a similar vein, the Ministry of the Johnston Family wrote:

God has designed that parents be the chief caregivers and educators of their children. 
In Deuteronomy 6:7, God mandates that parents "teach (God's commandments) diligently unto thy children, and thou shalt talk of them (God's commandments) when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."
This parents cannot do if they have shipped their kids off to the local daycare...

-- From "The Right Remedy for Dying Kids in Daycare",, 9/03
Christians should not be surprised by these (negative daycare) findings given our biblical understanding of human sinfulness. Each child is born a sinner. When day care workers put a bunch of "little sinners" together in a room without adequate supervision, sin nature will most likely manifest itself in the environment.
Kerby Anderson, "National Day Care" Probe Ministries, 1996

One wonders why more religious institutions don't follow the example of the First Baptist Church of Berryville, Arkansas. This church felt they were giving people a mixed signal about home and family values by operating a daycare center.  As a result, the church closed its daycare center in April of 1997.
-- From "It Takes A Church" by The First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ of Columbus, Ohio, , 20-Apr-97
