Who Will Rock the Cradle? ,
Edited by Phyllis Schlafly, ©1989, Page 160-161
Why we have to debate this subject is really peculiar, because it is not even vaguely conceivable that we could provide daycare centers all across the country which could replace the energies and commitment and attention and love and sacrifice which mothers are willing to make for their own children. You can’t pay for that. There’s no possible way to reproduce it.
It’s not a matter of whether you could pay to have enough daycare centers built or hire enough people (and they would be mostly women) for the daycare centers. That isn’t the issue. If that could be done, it would be extraordinarily expensive. It would also probably be completely unsuccessful because mothers give far more than any routinized official bureaucracy could possibly offer. As we would pay more and more for daycare, the conditions would become worse and worse…

But it is a total illusion that any such “quality” daycare could be created across the whole nation of the United States. It’s a completely quixotic*, crazy idea that the kinds of commitments which women make for their own children can be reproduced in large numbers of public centers.
* Idealistic to an impractical degree, from Don Quixote, hero of the novel from the early 1600's, Don Quixote De La Mancha, by Cervantes

Who Will Rock the Cradle?
Edited by Phyllis Schlafly, ©1989, Page 192-193
It is hard for me to believe that a civilized society such as ours treats millions of children the way we do. Child care in the United States is shocking.
The trauma being inflicted on our children is sin of the worst kind, for millions are doomed to a life of suffering and will never become what they might have been. Have you ever been in a daycare center and watched those babies lie there and cry, seeing nothing but empty emotionless faces? It is terrible. I can’t stand it—I don’t go there very often. It upsets me too much.

Who Will Rock the Cradle? ,
Edited by Phyllis Schlafly, ©1989, Page 205
There is an underlying premise to much of this debate: that it is both inevitable and desirable that, within a few years, some 80 to 90 percent of two-year-olds will be raised in daycare centers. I don’t believe this is either inevitable or desirable, and most Americans would agree. We need a more humane model for helping families with young children meet their needs and for helping women to integrate their careers and motherhood. That model would be rooted in parental choice, not in a one-dimensional policy of subsidizing the use of daycare centers.
