The War Against the Family: A Parent Speaks Out, William Gairdner ©1992, page 341 A clear sense of the problem can be grasped from the turnover rates of child-care workers..."Attachment" is impossible under such circumstances. I have heard that the average Swedish child has more than a hundred different "caregivers" by the age of 10. The term should be "caretakers." We can be sure that extensive daycare facilities will be match by extensive increases in the number of divorces, social violence, psychiatric beds, and jail cells.

The War Against the Family: A Parent Speaks Out, William Gairdner ©1992, page 341 As if generations of children who grow up lacking empathic capacities are not enough, daycare facilities, by their very nature, are hosts for all sorts of illnesses and diseases, some of them extremely dangerous to daycare children and their families.

The War Against the Family: A Parent Speaks Out, William Gairdner ©1992, page 342 There's a horrible litany of "Daycare-Related Illnesses" (DCRIs), as they are called...
Studies too numerous to mention show up to 12 times greater risk for such diseases in daycare children, and many of these bacterial and viral conditions can have sequelae (aftereffects) like scarlet fever, nephritis (kidney inflammation), rheumatic fever (inflammation of the heart), septicemia, meningitis, septic arthritis, and osteomyelitis.
...even the cautious CDC has warned that "large, licensed daycare centers...are major transmission centres for hepatitis, sever diarrhea, and other diseases.

Who's afraid of the Religious Right? by Don Feder, Chapter 7, The Culture War, SubSection:   Whatever happened to the idea of community? 25-Nov-93 Women park their preschoolers in day care.  Where once neighborhoods…echoed with children's laughter, today…they are deserted as ghost towns.

Crime and the Sacking of America: The Roots of Chaos by Andrew Peyton Thomas, © 1994,  p166 The rise of day care in modern America says some painful things about us as parents and as a nation and culture, things that are easier to leave unsaid.

Crime and the Sacking of America: The Roots of Chaos by Andrew Peyton Thomas, © 1994,  p167 American women today are commonly thought to be shiftless or, at best, behind the times if they do not hand over their babies to the anonymous arms of a (daycare worker), so that they can then work outside the home.

Crime and the Sacking of America: The Roots of Chaos by Andrew Peyton Thomas, © 1994,  p168 The reason for this (aggressive) behavior (of children raised in daycare) is clear enough and presses to the fore no matter how hard we try to evade it.
...The workers at such centers lack the extra, essential personal bond with the children...
That is, they do not love them.

Crime and the Sacking of America: The Roots of Chaos by Andrew Peyton Thomas, © 1994,  p169 America's multi-billion-dollar day-care industry represents the delayed triumph of Plato and his modern medium for the social sciences, Marx.  Formally confined to small [and since abandoned] social experiments, such as the Israeli kibbutzim, day care has now become part of the average American childhood.  As Dr. Brenda Hunter has observed of what she termed a "massive human experiment," "never before in American history have so many children been raised by strangers."  Such children spend most of their waking hours during the earliest, most impressionable years in these centers, where they learn the Platonic communal spirit as best they can.  There is indeed no "mine" and "not mine" here, as Plato would have it, since there is no love.

Crime and the Sacking of America: The Roots of Chaos by Andrew Peyton Thomas, © 1994,  p169 For all Plato's and Marx's valiant egalitarian efforts, no (daycare worker), no matter how well paid, is psychologically capable of providing the same affection.  Parental love is discriminatory.
