Motherhood - how should we care for our children?  by Anne Manne, 2005,  p. 212
 
(Daycare advocate Sandra Scarr) advocated lowering the quality of care while she was serving as the CEO of Kindercare. So confident was she that she even began to argue for state intervention to prevent mothers from staying at home.
...The important point, however, is the sheer coerciveness of Scarr's proposal. Remember Simon de Beauvoir's comment that after the revolution the choice to stay at home 'will not be permitted'? Scarr also looked forward to the time when 'experts will even claim that "being isolated at home with one adult and no peers" "is harmful" and "should not be permitted".'

Motherhood - how should we care for our children?  by Anne Manne, 2005,  p. 215 (US feminist and psychologist Louise Silverstein) wrote in American Psychologist, 'Psychologists must refuse to undertake any more research that looks for the negative consequences of [care] other than mothercare.' Instead, Silverstein argued, they should put their efforts solely into looking at the 'negative effects of not providing high-quality affordable day care.'

Motherhood - how should we care for our children?  by Anne Manne, 2005,  p. 217-218 (Eminent developmental psychologist Edward) Zigler is clearly worried by infants in daycare. They cannot tell their parents what is happening; it is a vulnerable time of life; attachment bonds are being formed; there are now clear, well-documented health risks in group care. 'Placing and infant in supplementary care at a few weeks of age is, we believe, an unwise practice which cannot be sanctioned by the research to date.' His tone in a later article is desperate: 'We are cannibalising children. Children are dying in the system, never mind achieving optimum development'.

Motherhood - how should we care for our children?  by Anne Manne, 2005,  p. 218 (Jay Belsky wrote) I'm a pariah. I violated the Eleventh Commandment of developmental pyschology--Thou Shalt Not Speak Any Ill Of Daycare, Whatsoever, Ever'.

Motherhood - how should we care for our children?  by Anne Manne, 2005,  p. 221 Deborah Vandell and Mary A. Corasaniti, studying all social classes, income levels and marital status, 'found third grade children who had had thirty or more hours of daycare begun some time in infancy scored the lowest in emotional wellbeing, work habits, peer relations and compliance'. Karen reports: 'Vandell had an arduous time getting this study published, more so than any of her other work, which surprised her, "because I'd never had such strong findings".'

Motherhood - how should we care for our children?  by Anne Manne, 2005,  p. 221 Another study by Jack Bates in Indiana found that the more daycare a child had at any age, the more likely the child 'is to display problematic levels of aggression'. Bates also said there was nothing in his data 'to suggest middle-class families can be sanguine* on this subject'.

Motherhood - how should we care for our children?  by Anne Manne, 2005,  p. 221-222 It is often claimed that the only negative results are found in American daycare where care quality is poor. That is not so. Patricia Morgan fills an entire book, Who Needs Parents?, with a summary of negative evidence up to 1996, including a lot of material from Britain.

Motherhood - how should we care for our children?  by Anne Manne, 2005,  p. 222 In the years following the publication of Patricia Morgan's book, many more studies have found the link between extensive care in infancy, especially group care, and more problematic child outcomes. Even in Scandinavia the link was found.
