Childcare vs. Caring for Children, Endeavour Forum Inc, Newsletter No. 110, April 2003, endeavourforum.org.au Besides shredding the...quality-not-quantity mantra, Belsky discredits their argument that extensive day care makes children "simply more independent and assertive than other children,"...In the NICHD study, the children who had experienced extensive non-maternal care evinced all the signs of "neediness (e.g., demands a lot of attention, demands must be met immediately, easily jealous), assertiveness (e.g., bragging/boasting, argues a lot), disobedience/defiance (e.g., talks out of turn, disobedient at school, defiant - talks back to staff, disrupts school discipline), and aggression (e.g., gets into many fights, cruelty-bullying-meanness, physically attacks others, destroys own things)."

Such troubling emotional problems showed up among children regardless of the quality of the care they received, regardless of their family's economic status, regardless of their mothers' marital status, regardless of their mothers' education.

Childcare vs. Caring for Children, Endeavour Forum Inc, Newsletter No. 110, April 2003, endeavourforum.org.au "...American parents of young children...national survey data reveal, believe  having a full-time parental presence in the home is what is best for young children and that the care  children get from even 'a top-notch day care center' is  not as good as what they would get at home with a parent." Translated into legislation, this means that "tax policies should support families rearing infants and young children thereby reducing the economic coercion that necessitates many to leave the care of their children to others when they would rather not."

Childcare vs. Caring for Children, Endeavour Forum Inc, Newsletter No. 110, April 2003, endeavourforum.org.au (In the June-July 2001 issue of) Arena, writer Julie Stephens presents a perceptive analysis of Professor Belskys findings in an article entitled: Eyes Wide shut in the Child-Care Debate.
... The mantra* is repeated that Australian child-care is different and of a better quality than everywhere else. Actually our staff to infant ratio is below international standard. The Australian ratio is one staff to three infants under 12 months of age, and for those over 12 months, one to 5. Any mother caring for triplets would need more help - from husband, grandparents and the local Council. As for five two-year-olds cared for by one stranger, the very thought is exhausting.
Julie Stephens says the persistent cry that working parents have no choice is questionable because the correlation is between high income and child-care, not the reverse**.
*Mantra = a word or phrase which is often repeated and which sometimes expresses a belief.
** That is, low-income families don't use daycare
