Who Needs Parents?
The Effects of Childcare and Early Education on Children in Britain and the USA, by Patricia Morgan, October 1996, p38
Other societies which have used daycare on a large scale have had problems with infectious disease. At the turn of the century the maternal and child welfare movement to promote child health and reduce mortality rates concentrated heavily on reducing infant diarrhoea. As there were massive outbreaks of gastro-intestinal disease in the North West, often starting in the nurseries of the mill towns, this increased the emphasis on looking after babies at home.
In 1980 the 25th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union provided pay for a new mother to take leave for a year (extended to 18 months in 1986) as a way of 'improving the country's system of protection for maternity and infancy'. Particularly alarming was the way in which socio-hygenic studies of infant health demonstrated how the early return of the mother to work was associated with respiratory disease, especially pneumonia.

Who Needs Parents?

vii, Foreword, by Robert Whelan:
page 39
Children in Groups
Nursery advertisements tempt parents with the promise that their child will have the 'stimulating company of his peers'. It is widely believed that simply putting small children together is good for their social development. This assumption is wildly at odds with a truism of criminology*, which is there is nothing like a child's peer group for encouraging aggression and delinquency, while its capacities as a humanising and social agency are small.
* The author is a sociologist specializing in criminology

Who Needs Parents?
The Effects of Childcare and Early Education on Children in Britain and the USA, by Patricia Morgan, October 1996, p
40

In 1985 Ron Haskins took up the aggression question. While they had received little or no publicity, a total of ten studies from four different countries now related the extended use of daycare to negative and aggressive behaviour, and decreased co-operation with both peers and adults, in both large and small samples. The age at which these negative traits appeared varied between two and fifteen years.
...These negative aspects of substitute and group care applied particularly to boys.
