7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 121

 

As Jeree Pawl, director of the infant-parent program at the University of California-San Francisco said, "In most day care centers, it's a pecking order; it's like a bunch of wild chickens in a hen yard."
The result is that "the loudest and most obnoxious behavior is what gets rewarded with attention from overloaded caretakers and intimidated peers," writes Karl Zinsmeister.

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 122 Another favorite rationalization is the idea that babies need day care in order to be intellectually stimulated.
But not only is this clinically false, it is silly. One (duped parent said) "Day care turned out to be an enriching experience for me and my son. At ten weeks old, he was coming home with artwork."
Category = Politics
7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 123 Unfortunately, today (society has) decided that day care is the only means for socialization--as if before there was day care, children were bored and lonely. But let us not forget that before there was day care, there were moms at home--and lots of them. Neighborhoods were our children's means of socialization...

7 Myths of Working Mothers by Suzanne Venker, 2004, P 124-125 Others maintain that there is no difference between a child who is raised at home and a child who is raised in day care as long as Mom is a "sensitive, responsive, and caring parent" during the time she does spend with her children...
That's like saying there's no difference between an employee who comes to work every day and does the job and an employee who only shows up one day a week, but on that particular day is really nice.
