Mother in the Middle Searching for Peace in the Mommy Wars, by Deborah Shaw Lewis &
Charmaine Crouse Yoest
1996, p. 209
On a policy level, the discussion of child care is dominated by questions of how to facilitate group day care. For example, one researcher wrote that "one objective of the Family Support Act of 1988 is to facilitate labor force entry of women with young children by improving their wages and reducing their child care costs." Isn't there an illogic to having the words "facilitating the labor force entry of women with young children" in legislation bearing the title Family Support Act?

However, in order to qualify for the DCTC (Dependent Care Tax Credit), you must "incur the care expenses in order to earn income." for married couples, "this requires both spouses to work either at full- or part-time positions." This policy...discriminates against at-home mothers...

Child care subsidies work the same way. Not only do they encourage out-of-home care through the actual subsidies but they institutionalize child care, by the establishment of a federal child care bureaucracy. By the cash assistance the (U.S.) government gives, it further promotes usage of day care centers.

Even some conservatives, who traditionally support mothers at home, are ignoring the larger societal ramifications of requiring AFDC moms to work. The tough "change welfare to workfare" rhetoric plays well. But won't it place some disadvantaged preschool children at an even greater disadvantage to reduce their contact with the one parent they do have and replace that parent with a "mother substitute"? This isn't "pro-family" strategy.

1996, p. 215
Who will take care of the children? Someone does have to do it. In discussions of child care, the child development literature often refers to the "mother substitute."
A mother's care for her own child is always the standard. As a matter of public policy, we should encourage what is best for the children.
Why should we settle for--much less promote--(the daycare) substitute?
