Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994

PART ONE: Parents and Society
Chapter 1: People, Profits and Parenting, P18
 
Workplace nurseries (day-cares) sound promising but seldom prove to be so. High capital costs usually mean that daycare facilities are housed in less expensive nearby premises rather than in workplaces themselves, so parents must subject their children to commuter travel but still be apart from them all day. Even if children are tolerated or welcomed in them, most work environments are too dangerous or too boring for children to be safe, happy or participant for long.

What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994

PART TWO: Children and Parents
Chapter 4: Daycare: Dreams and Nightmares, P68
A daycare debate is raging from the White House to Wall Street, from the European Commission to national parliaments, from multinational corporation boardrooms to Main Street firms, and in political parties, unions and women's organizations at every level. But that debate is about big issues like the economy, the labor market and women's votes; it is not about the small people whose care is the issue.

Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994, P79
And what about their children? While they are babies or young toddlers, even the very best daycare seldom gives them anything they positively need, and being in daycare, all day and every day, often deprives them of what they need from mothers

Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994, P73
...if only there were enough daycare...
That is the way the people in gray suits with computers for minds want women to chose. Their blinkered* bias, conscious and unconscious, fuels the assumption that "everybody...uses daycare."
*blinkers = blinders, used to prevent skittish horses from seeing objects at their sides.

Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994, P77
When media report, even editorialize, on the effects of daycare on children, they usually pick on positive studies and select their most positive results.
(But for)...studies that raise serious concerns about the effects of daycare on very young children; none (receive) comparable coverage.
...the accepted and acceptable message is that good daycare is OK for kids and more good daycare is better for everybody.
