The Cultural Devastation of American Women
by Nancy Levant (a woman with over 13 years experience as a childcare provider), 2006,
p. 128-129
Children have suffered from being separated from their mothers for the last 40 years. Most children in daycare centers have been too hungry, too tired, too wound up, too ignored, too un-held and unloved during most of their days, and they have had 10 to 12 hour days of separation imposed upon them by the two-income culture. This has never been ideal or even a halfway decent option, and they suffer in ways that most parents insist upon ignoring...

As a culture, we have failed our children. We thought we could build cute, colorful buildings to take them to and compensate. we thought we could hire women and pay them minimum wage to love, care for, and teach our children. We thought we could open these buildings at 6:00 a.m. and leave our children in them for 12 hours, five days a week, and be good parents. Denial, Denial, Denial.

We thought we could pay strangers to be parents to our children--to potty train them, to teach them to walk and read, to teach them to be creative and to have good manners. Denial. Instead, our children, beginning from infancy, developed insecurities and behaviors, which parents didn't like. And the children took their sullen insecurities and behaviors home, at night, when they were too tired, too hungry, too anxious from separation, and shocked their parents with angers, resentments, obnoxious behaviors, and depressions. Truth hurts, doesn't it?

The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog
by Bruce Perry, M.D., Ph.D. & Maia Szalavitz,
2006, p235
...I do know that many of our current childcare practices are hurting our children. For example...staff members are not allowed to touch the children. If they want to be hugged or held, the adults are supposed to push them away! This is a classic example of how a seemingly good idea--wanting to protect children from sexual predators--can have serious negative consequences. children need healthy touch. As we've seen, infants can literally die without it. It's part of our biology.
