Quote/Comment

Home-Alone America
 by Mary Eberstadt 2004, P 10
While most humans apparently exhibit the same daily pattern in which cortisol* is highest in the morning and falls in the afternoon, the day care children tested showed exactly the opposite pattern: Their cortisol levels were higher in the afternoon than in the morning. In other words, their internal stress, unlike that of other people, had apparently been mounting through their institutionalized day.
*Cortisol - a stress-related chemical

Home-Alone America
 by Mary Eberstadt 2004, P 10-11
Biting is one of the chief reasons that children are expelled from day care and preschool.
...many babies and toddlers in institutional care bite and bite a lot. They bite themselves, one another, and, of course teachers and adults, too.
Why is this fact so remarkable? Because it doesn't happen elsewhere the way it does in day care.
...chronic biting...is not the way children, even very small children, ordinarily behave.
(This is) clear evidence that day care is causing aggressive behavior.

Home-Alone America
 by Mary Eberstadt 2004, P12
What, after all, is the mental state of a bunch of babies and toddlers who take up biting as a habit? And we can all figure out the answer to that without reaching for the social science bookshelf: These kids aren't happy.
Category = Behavior
Home-Alone America
 by Mary Eberstadt 2004, P12
...the weirdest dimension of our day care wars so far is the insistence by such (daycare) advocates* that what most people think is bad news--more sick kids and worse-behaved ones--is actually good and maybe even great.
*Eberstadt calls such people, "separationists".
Category = Politics
Home-Alone America
 by Mary Eberstadt 2004, P 19
In sum, the real trouble with day care is two-fold; one, it increases the likelihood that kids will be unhappy, and two, the chronic rationalization of that unhappiness renders adults less sensitive to children's needs and demands in any form.
Category = Behavior, Quality
Home-Alone America
 by Mary Eberstadt 2004, P 19
...infants being packed off to hostile-style rows of cribs called "schools," toddlers who go for institutionalized walks roped together like members of a miniature chain gang -- this is what the (daycare) experiment means day to day.
Category = Quality
Home-Alone America
 by Mary Eberstadt 2004, P 76
Full-time breast-feeding...requires mother and baby to be in proximity to each other pretty much around the clock. In other words, what is required to get the medical benefits of breast-feeding is inimical to the common practice of day care.
Category = Disease
