Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery?
by Steve Biddulph,
2005,  p. 157
The media must accept a lot of the responsibility for shaping the attitudes and beliefs of young parents as to what is normal: 'You can have it all' is a very advertiser-friendly editorial line. A recent magazine article on childcare choices featured photos of unusually good-looking mothers with their babies at the beach...

Several years ago one of the largest bookstore chains in the UK asked me to write a book on 'Choosing Childcare -- deciding what is right for you'. I was excited about this idea since it was a chance to put across some of the concerns you have been reading about here.
I wrote them back just to be sure. Were they aware that I believed most alternatives to parental care of babies to be seriously second rate? That I would not recommend nursery care or nannies for children under the age of two?
...it turned out...They wanted to sell books that made people feel GOOD about whatever they chose, and perhaps I wasn't their man. So with courtesy and warmth, we parted our ways! I guess they found somebody else.

It is possible to keep improving daycare indefinitely, but the expense is astronomical. The kind of love that a parent gives, were it to be measured in monetary terms, would be worth millions of pounds* per child. The nursery care industry depends utterly on a supply of low-paid labour. If nursery care workers were paid what they deserve, the industry would collapse.

The strong feeling among European countries is that it is more cost effective to subsidize parents of young children under the age of two to stay at home, than to subsidize nurseries (day-cares) which at best do a second-rate job of caring for this age group.

The nursery (daycare) nightmare is not over yet. Every year more and more parents put younger and younger babies into nurseries. There are nurseries in high buildings where children never touch the ground, and others where they never go outside and breathe fresh air. In some countries there are all-week crches where children live round-the-clock, like baby boarding schools. Perhaps one day it will be possible simply to hand over one's newborn baby and check their progress on the internet. Virtual parenthood.
