There's No Place Like Work - How Business, government, and our obsession with Work have driven Parents from Home, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 20 The logic of attachment theory leads to the conclusion that, in the words of the theory's original proponent, John Bowlby, "a home must be very bad before it is bettered by a good (daycare) institution."

There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 21 Dr. Benjamin Spock, the eminent child care authority (said), "A day nursery...is no good for an infant. There's nowhere near enough attention or affection to go around."

There's no Place Like Work,  by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 24 It appears that the children of daycare exhibit some of the same debilitating emotional, psychological, cognitive, and even physical problems displayed by children adopted from the Romanian orphanages*
*Communist dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu's Romanian orphanages were state-run child factories designed to produce compliant subjects for the Romanian military.  No consideration was ever given to the developmental needs of the children.  Studies showed that the orphans, sometimes lying quietly and unattended for 18 to 20 hours a day, were severely socially, emotionally, and developmentally delayed.

There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 25 One letter from a former day care worker stated that "it was impossible for us even to approach the level of care we believed a child needed....I watched children being traumatized as workers came and went. I observed the disenchantment they suffered, and the hostility they developed...

There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 25 In a Wall Street Journal interview, the head of an Illinois day care center said, "I'm torn. I want [the kids] to feel safe and secure, but this is not their home. Parents think we can substitute for family, but we can't."

There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 25 Author Penelope Leach quotes a day care worker saying that "when I have children of my own, I will use everything I know to look after them myself. I'd die rather than put a child of mine in the place where I work."

There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 25 The evidence that day care affects children in profoundly detrimental ways is not merely anecdotal.   Numerous studies in recent years confirm what anecdotal evidence implies: that paid "day care professionals" cannot substitute for maternal affection.
