Quote/Comment

Parenthood by Proxy,
by Dr. Laura C. Schlessinger,
© 2000, p. 250

“After ten years of work in a quality center, countless certificates, seminars, workshops, and a B.Ed. in Early Childhood Education, I find myself in full agreement with your urging parents to stay home with their children.  Turnover rates due to illness, leave of absence, retirement, vacations, quitting, and part-time help are quite high.  The children always have to adapt to new people on a continuous basis, thus inhibiting the bonding process.  Even with government sanctioned teacher/child ratios, no matter how qualified or caring the staff, there is only so much time workers can spend with each child.  The health, welfare and safety of the group become a priority, making it impossible to attend to each child’s needs.  What children need are mature parents, who provide a consistent, nurturing, quality of care, and a home that is more than a pit stop between the car and day care center.

As a former day care worker, I can assure you that I never met a child who opted for day care over staying home.”

“I have worked in five highly regarded day care centers in a middle and upper middle class large town.  What I have seen there makes me plead with new mothers or mothers-to-be.  Please, do not put a child in an institutionalized center (babies left crying, bottles propped up instead of held, scolding children who need attention and love, etc.)…”

Yet another mother is quoted as saying (Boston Herald, December 5, 1999), “My husband and I reluctantly toughed it out for three months as Ally continued to have trouble adjusting (to day care).”
(This quote enrages me because) this woman talks about her own “toughing it out” experience, as though we are to feel for her (not her daughter).
