What's Wrong with Day Care by Charles Siegel,
Teachers College Press, New York, NY
© 2001, page 32 & 33 
This lack of emotional involvement with their parents as infants makes it difficult for the children of the kibbutz (ideal daycare) to develop intimacy with others as they grow up...
...The founders of the kibbutz movement...deliberately wanted to weaken the family...

The Broken Hearth Reversing the Moral Collapse of the American Family, by William J. Bennett, October 2001, Chapter I, The State of Marriage and the Family, p26 My own view -- to state it right form the start -- is that day care is no substitute for a parent's unqualified love and devotion, patience, empathy, and unhurried attention.  The writer Karl Zinsmeister puts it this way, and I agree:  "A child and a parent are bound eternally, by blood and destiny.  A day-care worker is doing a job."  Of course, not every child comes from a caring and loving home; and of course, the quality of day care varies considerably.  But in the large majority of cases, day care cannot measure up to the devotion of a mother, and we are embracing shadow and myth if we think otherwise.

Bringing up Boys by Dr. James Dobson, ©2001, p. 85 Given the delicate nature of infants, perhaps it is understandable why I remain unalterably opposed to the placement of babies in day-care facilities unless there is no reasonable alternative.
...But to new mothers who have other options, I would strongly recommend that you not hand your babies over to childcare workers, many of whom are underpaid and untrained and who will not share your irrational commitment to that infant.

Bringing up Boys by Dr. James Dobson, ©2001, p. 85 My opinion on this subject (placing young infants in daycare) is based on hard data...
...After the release of the NICHD study*, there was a hue and cry from the liberal community that has told us for years that children actually thrive better in child-care centers.  They attacked the methodology of the study and claimed its findings were invalid.
*NICHD study - NICHD's (US National Institute for Child Health and Development)  on-going study  found that children who spend more than 30 hours a week in day care at an early age tend to be more aggressive, especially toward their peers. The study also found that these children were more fearful, shy and sad.

Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News
by Bernard Goldberg, ©2002,
Chapter 11, The Most Important Story You Never Saw on TV,
Why have the evening news casts tiptoed around the most sensitive of all issues involving children -- the day-care issue -- going out of their way to accentuate the positive and deemphasize the negative?

Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News
Chapter 11, The Most Important Story You Never Saw on TV,  
by Bernard Goldberg, ©2002,
p 171
The argument here is that once again the elite journalists on television have taken sides.  Too many day-care centers in America are not as good as they ought to be, they and their "experts" frequently tell us, so the challenge is to spend more government money to subsidize day care and to make it better.  I am not against "better day care," and I have no problem with the evening news doing stories about how that might be done.  The problem is that they don't let the other voices on.  The ones who say that most toddlers are better off with their own mothers than with day-care workers...

Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News
Chapter 11, The Most Important Story You Never Saw on TV,
by Bernard Goldberg, ©2002,
p 175
On network TV, given the prevailing sensibilities that reign there, voices that argue for policies that would make it easier for moms to drop their kids off at day care are considered thoughtful, compassionate, and reasonable.  But voices that argue for less day care, because day care is bad for kids--frankly, I don't think the media elites even know such voices exist.

To Kindle a Soul: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Parents and Teachers, Rabbi Lawrence Kelemen, ©2001, p.123 Many turn to daycare, but this solution fails on two counts. First, the extremely rare, high-quality programs that nearly mimic one-on-one parental interaction cost nearly as much as most working moms make. Second, the more common, affordable programs provide much less of what children need most—attention and affection.

Researchers at the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois demonstrated that many children put into standard daycare programs at age eight months exhibited attachment disorders by age 12 months. They conclude their report with the warning, “Repeated daily separations experienced by infants whose mothers are working full-time constitute a risk factor” for psychopathology.

Dr. Jay Belsky, a professor at Pennsylvania State University, similarly cautions that in all too many cases daycare produces “insecure attachment, heightened aggressiveness, noncompliance, and withdrawal.”
