Your Baby in Daycare:
Are you out of your mind?
 by Seyla Vee*  ©2004, P 31
*Sounds like "C'est la Vie", a French phrase meaning "That's life". 
(My sister) says that daycare is not so horrible, that plenty of kids are raised in daycare and turn out just fine. Is that what we call love for our children? We put them in situations that we believe are “not horrible” because it hasn’t harmed some other kids?

Your Baby in Daycare:
Are you out of your mind?
 by Seyla Vee,  ©2004, P 38
...when you place your child of two, three or four months in any daycare, you are putting him in a baby warehouse.

Your Baby in Daycare:
Are you out of your mind?
 by Seyla Vee,  ©2004, P 66
What I tell parents at the end of the day about their babies is not the truth. I tell them what they want to hear. I tell them how well their child did and how he was just fine (in my day care).

Your Baby in Daycare:
Are you out of your mind?
 by Seyla Vee,  ©2004, P 73
I hope that one day there won’t be any infant and toddler daycares, because a baby not at home and without a parent is the unhappiest child in the world. Please, don’t abandon your children.

Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life
by Dapne de Marneff
©2004, P13
But progressive calls for universal affordable day care ignore a jumble of inconvenient emotions, including parents' desire to take care of their own children.

Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life
by Dapne de Marneff
©2004, P151
Whether one is dealing with hiring an in-home caregiver or with a child care center, the reality is that turnover is high. Everyone, including day care advocates, agrees that high staff turnover, other things being equal, is not good for children..

Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life
by Dapne de Marneff
©2004, P154
Given how enormously expensive a government-funded day care system of highly trained, well-paid staff would be, many people would rather put their money toward funding their own "high quality" care of their children than toward a publicly funded system.

Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life
by Dapne de Marneff
©2004, P158
...(Daycare advocate Sandra) Scarr proposes that child care standards should be relaxed somewhat to make the price affordable for working parents. The regulations as they stand increase child care costs, with the danger of "driving most families into the underground market of unregulated care." This shadowy, gray-market imagery may reflect in part Scarr's commitment to day care center care; she served as CEO of the for-profit day care chain KinderCare Learning Centers, Inc.

Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life
by Dapne de Marneff
©2004, P180
...our thinking about child care can sink to Big Brotherish* depths. Witness, for instance, a truly creepy "solution" to the problem of parental anxiety while their children are in day care, parent access to real-time video of their children. Here is a method ostensibly designed to make you feel "more in touch" with your child during your hours apart, and yet your child doesn't know you are watching him and you are unable to interact with him. Your sense of distance and alienation is not bridged, but rather reinforced, by watching him like a spy. Parental paranoia is the only problem this technological innovation addresses; on the level of intimate relationship, the video simply makes us more acutely aware that we are not connecting with our child.
*Big Brotherish refers to George Orwell's
novel of a Stalinist future world, Nineteen Eighty-Four.
