Quote/Comment

Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P29 So who exactly benefits from the (proposed) expensive federal day care system...? More affluent families, who can afford to pay for their child care, or those blue-collar mothers who have to work, but who don't want center-based care? Even when they pay lip service to allowing women choices, (day care advocates) never offer alternatives to help mothers who choose to stay home.
Category = Economics, Politics
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P30 The most direct benefits of (universal daycare proposals) would go to the day care lobby, the National Education Association, big business, and affluent career women.
Category = Economics, Politics
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P31 The majority of families with children wouldn't get a dime of the funds proposed, because, to the militant irritation of the day care industry, they don't use professional substitute care. The (universal daycare) plans would have less affluent one-earner families...subsidizing the day care costs for generally more affluent two-earner families...
Category = Politics
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P35 The final report (of the 1970 White House Conference on Children) declared, "Day care is a powerful institution. A day care program that ministers to a child from six months to six years of age has over 8,000 hours to (indoctrinate him with) values, fears, beliefs, and behaviors."
Category = Politics, Quality
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P35 Debates over day care--usually dubbed "the Mommy Wars"--are among the most treacherous fought out in the public square.
...the child-care establishment (an industry worth $36 billion a year) has engaged in deceit and censorship to prevent an honest assessment of what decades of research can now tell us about the effects of substitute care on children.
Category = Politics
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P36 Hypocrisy is clear when LIBERAL* proponents of (daycare) center-based child care are found advocating the boosting of big business's profits, the expansion of tax cuts for the rich, and the sabotaging of women's choices.
(*Emphasis added -- Editor.  Dedicated Liberals are generally against big business, tax cuts for the wealthy and are pro-choice)
Category = Politics
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P37 In (her 1977 book, Every Child's Birthright), Selma Fraiberg argued that even high-quality day care is harmful because it prevents children from forming the healthy attachment to one caregiver that allows them, in turn, to form lasting commitments as adults.
Category = Quality, Behavior
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P37 But the bad news kept coming. That same year, the unwelcome results were in on a pilot program at Yale University that had been designed to provide the optimal day-care setting. The researchers concluded: "Group care, even under the best circumstances, is stressful for very young children."
Category = Quality
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P37 According to a study by the American Academy of Family Physicians, children in day care are eighteen times more likely to get sick than other children, and infants in day care have more than twice the rate of inner-ear infections as babies who are raised at home. At any one time, 16 percent of children attending day care facilities are likely to be sick. They are three to four and a half times more likely to require hospital treatment than children raised at home.
Category = Disease
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P40 Dr. Sandra Scarr, a child psychologist, is one of the most influential day-care researchers and has published four books and over two hundred articles that amount to a massive corpus* of propaganda.
...In a conflict of interest that wouldn't be tolerated in any other field, she has published her academic work while serving on the board of directors of the largest day-care chain in the country.

* corpus = body
Category =  Politics
Women Who Make the World Worse, by Kate O'Beirne  2006,  P42 In de Marneffe's* opinion, "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."
*Daphne de Marneffe, clinical psychologist and author of Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life. 2004
Category = Economics, Politics, Quality
Reaching the Left from the Right, by Barbara Curtis, 2006,  P47-48 ...daycare is not...good for children. According to the National Institutes of Health, children who spend most of their waking hours in daycare are three times more at risk for behavioral problems...
Their study...found a direct correlation between time in childcare and traits like aggression, defiance, and disobedience. These correlations were true regardless of the type or quality of care...
Specifically, daycare kids "scored higher on things like getting in lots of fights, cruelty, bullying, meanness, as well as talking too much, demands that must be met immediately."
