Children's Interests/Mothers' Rights by Sonya Michel, 1999, P259, 260 ...most for-profits sought to keep standards low ...

Category = Behavior
Saving Childhood by Michael and Diane Medved, 1998, P 190 Kathleen Parker writes in USA Today, " ...One might wonder how many children have suffered from society's media-fed delusion that kids are just fine stashed in nurturing warehouses (day cares) with runny-nosed tykes and too few competent
