Parenthood by Proxy,
by Dr. Laura C. Schlessinger,
© 2000,  p. 89

“No matter how convenient or soothing an idea it may be,” (Linda Burton in Family Circle magazine June 7, 1994) writes, “child-rearing cannot be redefined as the responsibility of daycare workers…  Kids need their parents.  They should be able to have them.”

Other-than-parent care (day-care) ought to be reserved for desperate situations…
Other-than-parent care ought not to be falsely rationalized as best for either children or parents.

The bottom line is this:  There is just no way that any public or private facility can, for payment of any amount, provide for each individual, unique, developing human being, the relationship bonding, love, touch, care, concern, that a mommy or daddy can for free!

All of this is precisely why child development expert Edward Zigler of Yale has gone so far as to call day care “psychological thalidomide*.  Research beginning in the early 1970s has found that such children are more likely to be violent, antisocial and resistant to basic discipline” (Wall Street Journal, January 9, 1998).
*Thalidomide, a drug introduced in the 1950s, was prescribed for nausea and insomnia in pregnant women.  Later, it was found to be the cause of severe birth defects in children whose mothers had taken the drug during their first trimester of pregnancy.

In addition, there are medical consequences to institutional child care.  The incidence of diarrhea, ear infections (which may lead to hearing loss with the concomitant problems of learning disabilities), and respiratory illnesses occur with higher frequency for children in day care.  “Overall,” according to a 1989 estimate by Dr. Ron Haskins in the Bulletin of the New York Academy of Medicine, “the excess illness attributable to day care costs American families and society $1.8 billion and the lives of at least one hundred children each year.”

In his extensive article on day care in the May/June 1998 issue of American Enterprise, editor Karl Zinsmeister quoted a letter from a mother with a master’s degree in social psychology on her visit to what she considered one of the best day care chains.  “What I saw broke my heart.  Babies were lined up, six in a row, crying, waiting for their meals.  Toddlers were still in their cribs, some with tear-stained cheeks… with looks of having given up any hope of personal attachment a long time ago.”
