Facing the Effects of Mother's Absence, Home by Choice,
by Brenda Hunter, Ph.d,
1991
page 66
...day care is a breeding ground for disease--for children of any age.  Children in day care are exposed to a host of diseases, ranging from bacterial meningitis to epiglottitis, cytomegalovirus, and hepatitis A.  In addition, children in day care are a much higher risk for having gastrointestinal disease, especially diarrhea, than are home-reared children.

Facing the Effects of Mother's Absence, Home by Choice, by Brenda Hunter, Ph.d, 1991
page 67
...one of the silent costs of years spent in highly regimented day care will be a longing for the freedom of lost childhood.  Play is the work of childhood.  To play freely children need unstructured time.  They need to be able to concentrate on building houses with blocks, coloring, dressing their dolls, waging warfare without the constant interference and regimentation that day care requires.

page 68
When a child spends eleven or twelve hours of his waking day in the care of indifferent custodians, no parent and no educator can say the child's development is being promoted or enhanced, and common sense tells us that children are harmed by indifference.

Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood Edited by John Piper and Wayne Grudem, 1991
p330
Such (day care) centers have been strongly related to the transmission of diseases such as hepatitis, meningitis, cytomegalovirus, and other illnesses.  Increasing evidence of negative psychological effects such as disruptions in maternal bonding, aggression, impulsivity, selfishness, and later school discipline problems is emerging in the research literature.
Marked anger and a sense of rejection are seen in many daycare children.

Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood Edited by John Piper and Wayne Grudem, 1991
p330
The potential harm of a broad emphasis on day care goes beyond the possible negative impact on children, however, and it is more than a probable waste of tax dollars.  Government-sponsored universal day care would increase the favored financial status treatment of wealthier, two-career and single-parent families relative to the struggling majority, creating an economic and tax climate that would...further punish stable, traditional, or semi-traditional families.

Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood Edited by John Piper and Wayne Grudem, 1991
p337
A study of primarily middle-class children was conducted by University of Texas at Dallas researchers Deborah Lowe Vandell and Mary Anne Corasaniti.  This study indicated that full-time childcare was associated with poorer study skills, lower grades, diminished self-esteem, and inadequate social interaction.  Those who went into full-time care after the first year did not develop as well socially, emotionally, and intellectually as those in part-time care or those whose mothers stayed at home with them.
...Isn't it amazing that legislators are looking for ways to enable families to send their children to day care rather than looking for ways to enable mothers to stay at home with their children?
