Quote/Comment

Parenthood by Proxy,
by Dr. Laura C. Schlessinger,
© 2000, p. 255

It is rather explicit testament to the method by which many children today are being raised, i.e., dropped off at the kiddy corral.  Apparently, after dropping the child off at 7 A.M. and picking him up at 6 P.M., the parents are informed about their child’s life through a checklist of sorts.  This laissez-faire method of child rearing is somehow legitimized by the apparent “care” and “attention” given to the individual child throughout the day, as described on the report card.
On this report care, the times of urination are noted.  Each entry is in a different handwriting—exactly five.  That means that over the course of the day, at least five individuals were in charge of caring for this child.
A small checklist in the bottom right-hand corner of the report card reads four choices: happy, talkative, quiet, and played well.  This list falls a little short as I do not see included in the choices such descriptions as: abandoned, irreparably scarred, forsaken, discarded, rejected, and generally sad—but I suppose that wouldn’t be good for business.

Parenthood by Proxy,

“Chilling is the large number of studies that link early, extensive day-care with psychological, social, and behavioral problems,” writes Maggie Gallagher, summarizing the vast and growing body of knowledge concerning day care’s detrimental impact on children.
An affiliate scholar at the Institute for American Values, Gallagher is also a nationally syndicated columnist.  “Studies increasingly confirm the common-sense intuition that day care poses dangers to small children.  An emerging body or research suggests that children in full-time day care are less likely to be firmly attached to their parents and are, on average, more disobedient towards adults and more aggressive toward their peers than children cared for primarily by their parents.  In certain circumstances, daycare also puts children’s cognitive development at risk” (National Review, January 26 1998).
