7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 106 You can't pay someone to do for a child what a parent will do for free. Even excellent child care can never do what a good parent can do.
--Urie Bronfenbrenner

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 107 We have chosen to place our faith in day care in the face of overwhelming evidence of its harmful effects and the experience of most women, who suffer immediate pangs of guilt and anxiety dropping off their six-week-old newborns at day care centers.
"When we choose to put a child in day care, we want to believe it's good, and so we do," writes Covey*. He adds, "That which we desire most earnestly, we believe most easily."
*Stephen Covey, acclaimed author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 109 Psychologists and child experts have acknowledged that even marginal care at home is better than day care. "A home must be very bad before it can be bettered by a good institution," writes renowned psychiatrist John Bowlby.

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 112 Because nannies and day care have become so prevalent, they appear to be safe and harmless enough. As a result, women ignore the little voice inside their heads that tells them otherwise.

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 112-113 Indeed, it could be many years before people are even aware of the damage of day care, and it can come in many forms. "Some youngsters learn not to attach themselves to any caregiver. They lose the ability to feel or express warmth, and develop a shallow and indiscriminate emotional life. Certain such children wind up without any sense of personal connectedness," writes Zinsmeister. And because this outcome is so difficult to quantify, many child care advocates ignore its reality. For if we cannot measure the harmful effects of substitute care ("Johnny is reading below grade level") then there must not be any harm. But there is. You just have to pay attention.
Very close attention.
