The Four-Thirds Solution by Stanley I. Greenspan, M.D., 2001
page 7 & 8
The most important point to remember is this:  The essential ingredient needed to grow intelligence, morality, intimacy, empathy, sense of self, and self-esteem in our children is not educational toys, nursery school classes, trips, tutoring, or the extracurricular activities that fill our schedules and those of our children to the brim.  The key ingredient is regular substantial doses of us...
Our children require our minds, our presence, and souls.  In practical terms, this means they require more of us than our busy society encourages.

The Four-Thirds Solution by Stanley I. Greenspan, M.D., 2001
 page 24
These studies provide a fuller picture than the earlier reports--and what we see is not reassuring.  We are finding that the vast majority of child care is not of high quality.  In addition, new research shows that many hours in day care (30 hours or more per week) is associated with increased problem behavior, especially aggressive behavior at age four and a half and in kindergarten...
Taken together, these findings raise serious questions about the earlier studies of child care and our (society's) comfortable assumption that full-time day care is all right for infants and young children.

The Four-Thirds Solution by Stanley I. Greenspan, M.D., 2001
page 25 & 26
Some parents may see any criticism about child care as an attack on their particular decisions:  their choice of child care, their choice to work.  Those who have devoted themselves to activism in the child-care field may see criticism as a commentary on their life's work.  For others, the issue can take a liberal-versus-conservative cast:  If you support day care, then you're liberal.  And if you don't support day care, then you're a conservative.  Also, criticism of day care has often been interpreted as an attack on mothers who work outside the home.  The assumption is that critics of day care are really advocating a return to an era when women stayed at home and cared for children instead of pursuing careers.
These agendas become entwined in a tangle of confusion, and they are preventing us from having a coherent discussion about the actual quality of day care today and the question of whether millions of our children should be spending so much time at child care centers or in family child-care providers' homes as they exist now.
...
If we clear away the smoke generated by the other issues, this is what we see:
Much of the child care available for infants and toddlers in this country simply isn't good for them.
