High Risk: children without a conscience
 by Dr. Ken Magid & Carole A. McKelvey
1987, P123

 
The child-care industry in this country is not healthy. It's rare to find an excellent day-care center. Most fall into the inadequate range...
The child-care industry has argued that if standards for caregivers are raised, or the ratio of caregivers to children is required to be higher, they couldn't afford to operate...
Therefore, the frequently quoted "excellent day care" is largely a myth.

High Risk: children without a conscience
 by Dr. Ken Magid & Carole A. McKelvey
1987, P125

 
...children, who received (extremely high-quality) center-based care in the first year of life, were compared to those receiving care any time thereafter.
They were found:
"...as more likely to use the aggressive acts of hitting, kicking, and pushing than children in the control group. Second, they were more likely to threaten, swear, and argue. Third, they demonstrated these propensities in several school settings--the playground, the hallway, the lunchroom, and the classroom. Fourth, teachers were more likely to rate these children having aggressiveness as having a serious deficit in social behavior.

 by Dr. Ken Magid & Carole A. McKelvey
1987, P127
(Michael K. Meyerhoff of the Center for Parent Education in Newton, Massachusetts) states, "I doubt that any intellectually honest person who has reviewed the research on early childhood development or who has worked with parents and babies would not be concerned about the growing trend toward placing infants and toddlers in substitute care for 8 or 9 hours a day, five days a week".

High Risk: children without a conscience
 by Dr. Ken Magid & Carole A. McKelvey
1987, P128
(Educational psychologist Burton White) wrote in 1985:
"...I firmly believe that most children will get off to a better start in life if they spend the majority of their waking hours during the first 3 years being cared for by their parents and other family members rather than in any form of substitute care".

High Risk: children without a conscience
 by Dr. Ken Magid & Carole A. McKelvey
1987, P128
"What person," (child development expert) Brazelton asks, "is going to work a 40-hour week with small kids all day for (minimum wage) if they could do anything else?

High Risk: children without a conscience
 by Dr. Ken Magid & Carole A. McKelvey
