7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 115

 

(During Katie Couric's 19 October 2000 Today show interview with Ellen Galinsky, the president of the Families and Work Institute and author of the book, Ask the Children) Couric asked her whether or not she thought there were any downsides to day care. Galinsky responded hesitantly, "Well, yes, day care can be harmful." Then Couric asked her how it could be harmful, to which Galinsky responded, "Well, when it isn't good." Couric then asked her what percentage of day care centers are considered good, and Galinsky answered, "About 12 percent."

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 115-116 Most of the information the public receives about day care is from day care advocates. One would have to do thorough research to find material that proves the harmful effects of day care, not because it doesn't exist but because it's not the side of the debate that the media wishes to provide or discuss. The public is never exposed to an honest, fair debate about day care. As Diane Fisher writes, "Academics, pediatricians, and other experts have learned to keep a prudent silence about the risks of day care, and so it is the day-care advocates--and only the advocates--we hear from on our television screens and in our parenting magazines.

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 116 (some) dismiss such concerns and remain in thrall to the idea that day care could be great if only there were more funding. But money can never fix a system that is rife with dysfunction at its very core.

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 118-119 Ironically, many day care providers don't support day care--not for their own children anyway. I spoke with a provider who has worked in day care for over five years. She told me that she, the director of a child care center, has let parents know that while her center provides children with the best possible care, day care is still second best. She then told me she has no intention of using day care when she has children. It is hardly surprising that child care providers would feel this way: they know best the conditions in most day care centers and how children cope in such an environment.
Unfortunately, most aren't forthcoming because they need their jobs.

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 120 Some, for instance, claim day care teaches children independence.
This is blatantly false. First of all, there is no such thing as an independent baby. Babies are completely and totally dependent, and they stay this way for some time.
