Quote/Comment

Parenthood by Proxy,
by Dr. Laura C. Schlessinger,
© 2000,  p. 248

Also profiled in the same magazine were William and Wendy Dreskin, who operated a “good” day care center in San Francisco for five years.  Its ratio of children to workers was low.  It had ample equipment and an excellent curriculum.  Teachers all had degrees plus at least a year of graduate training.
They wrote a book about their experience called The Day Care Decision.  In it, they concluded, “For two years we watched children respond to the stress of separation from their parents with tears, anger, withdrawal or profound sadness.  We found, to our dismay, that nothing in our own affection and caring for these children would erase this sense of loss and abandonment.”
The Dreskins eventually closed their quality center.

Parenthood by Proxy,
by Dr. Laura C. Schlessinger,
© 2000,  p. 249

“I have been a licensed day care provider in my home and was a foster parent for nearly four years.   As a day care provider and, I might add, one of the good ones, every day I saw children yearn for their parents.  Some children cried when dropped off.  Some cried for their mom at naptime.  I have been told by some older children that they wish their mom would stay home so they could be with her…”

“We are both stay-at-home moms and day care providers in Salt Lake City, Utah.  We felt strongly about mothers staying home with their children before, but the feeling has doubled and tripled in intensity as we have taken care of children ten to twelve hours a day, who spend only two to four hours each night with the people they really want to be with—their parents.  All of this, plus the desire to be full-time moms to our children, has helped us make the decision to quit providing day care.”

Parenthood by Proxy,
Don't Have Them If You Won't Raise Them by Dr. Laura C. Schlessinger, Harper Collins publishers, New York, NY © 2000,
p. 249-250

“We got in some financial hardship, so I decided to work in a day care center, just so I could stay near my baby.  It was a nightmare.  Most of the children are depressed, afraid, and they do not understand time or when Mommy is coming back (or is she ever coming back).  It seems like the teachers were always trying to make the kids behave and control the crowd.  So there is no time for personal attention.  I was in the best day care in the region…
This is not a childhood!  I quit and am very happy at home…even if we…have many financial troubles.
How many people do you know who would drop a brand-new Mercedes* in a garage for all different people to drive all day long and pick it up at the end of the day?
I bet no one would do that with a (expensive) car, but with a child…?”
