Quote/Comment

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Chapter 9, Some Other Child Care Issues and Risks, P145 Zinsmeister points out that "the deepest problem with paid child-rearing is that someone is being asked to do for money what very few of us are able to do for any reason other than love.

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, P158 If the endeavour and resources put into seeking high quality non-parental childcare were expended in supporting high quality parenting there would be a much greater prospect of benefit for all concerned. Conditions which promote sensitive, empathic parenting in early childhood and the breast-feeding and carrying of infants should be studied and supported.
