The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983, p 114-118
(Parents) do not feel comfortable with the idea that day care might be harmful to their children. A number of rationalizations have emerged to help (working parents) overcome the natural concern they feel at leaving their children for ten hours a day.
The denial mechanism is strong enough for them to buy into these rationalizations. Here are some of the common ones.
-Rationalization: It's quality time that counts.
The quality-versus-quantity debate is a false dichotomy*
Children can thrive on good-sized portions of rice and beans and corn (quantity), but they will soon starve on one bite a day of filet mignon (quality).
-Rationalization: I couldn't teach my child all those things.
Even the best infant care centers, the ones with personnel trained in early childhood education, cannot teach the babies anything more than their parents could.
-Rationalization: I believe peer contact is important so I send my child to day care.
Peer contact is important. It is not a reason to send a child to day care eight or ten hours a day.
-Rationalization: I'm sending my children to day care so they will be independent.
...children who have been in day care since they were six weeks old may not wail at the kindergarten door. They have long since discovered this is useless. But their lack of (emotional) nourishment will be evident all their lives, especially when they try to form a close loving relationship with another human being.
The foregoing rationalizations may provide some comfort for (daycare parents), but the right decision for ...the child must be based on a correct understanding of children and their needs, not false assumptions.
*dichotomy - division into two contradictory groups.

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983, p 122
The days of coffee klatches, of sharing gossip with a neighbor while the kids all play under the big old apple tree in the back yard, are disappearing. That neighbor is likely to be working, and her kids are off in day care.
