Day Care
Child Psychology & Adult Economics

Edited by Bryce Christensen
©1989, Introduction, by Bryce Christensen, director of The Rockford Institute Center on the Family in America,
p vii
 

Against the claims made by day-care advocates, Dr. Westman* concluded that "full-time day care, no matter how heavily funded, is not in the interests of young children, their parents, or society, because it is a response to the employment of parents...not to the needs of the children nor of the parents." "Children need the full range of spontaneous and intuitive interaction with adults who truly love them enough to sacrifice for them," he said, holding out little hope that day-care workers could provide such love.

Two of the greatest writers of this century--Aldous Huxley and Yevgeny Zamyatin--have depicted collectivized child care as part of a dehumanizing future.

"The Risks of Day Care For Children, Parents, and Society”
Jack C. Westman, M.D.
Department of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin Medical School, Madison, Wisconsin, p7

The advocates of institutional day care represent three constituencies*: 1) employed parents, 2) day-care child-development specialists, and 3) the day-care system itself.
Notably absent is a constituency representing the interests of children.

Day Care
Child Psychology & Adult Economics

Jack C. Westman, M.D.
p23
...discerning the effect of day care on children is not easy.
A child regarded as well-adjusted in a day-care center is one who does not demonstrate distressful behavior on parental separation...
The fact that crying on leaving and returning to a parent disappears often is interpreted as evidence that a child has adjusted well to day care. In fact, it may well be evidence that the child has adapted to stressful situations by entering a stage in which stress is masked or that the child has adapted by investing less in the parent. Unfortunately, the adverse effects of this kind of early life experience may not be evident in more overt ways for years.
