Quote/Comment

Family Building - The Five Fundamentals of Effective Parenting by John Rosemond, 2005,  p. 23 I hardly think that all of the parents who drop their kids at day-care centers across the USA do so out of necessity, and if necessity is not the case, then I am against putting a child in a day-care center for any significant period of time.

Family Building - The Five Fundamentals of Effective Parenting by John Rosemond, 2005,  p. 24 Furthermore, no sensible person would argue that a paid day-care worker can provide a better developmental environment than a loving mother.  Therefore, with a nod to the relatively rare exception, home care is better than day care.  In fact, I've never met a day-care director who felt otherwise.

Family Building - The Five Fundamentals of Effective Parenting by John Rosemond, 2005,  p. 24 In this case, common sense should tell us that...Belky's finding that children who spend lots of time in day care are more likely to be aggressive than children whose moms care for them at home...is correct.  A child who spends some five out of seven days per week in day care from early infancy, competing with lots of other kids for toys, space, and attention, is likely to be more aggressive than a child who spends his or her days at home.
Category = Behavior
Family Building - The Five Fundamentals of Effective Parenting by John Rosemond, 2005,  p. 25 Common sense says mom care is generally better than employee care.  Common sense says day care is going to breed more aggressive behavior than home care.  The fact is, Belsky's findings...that children who spend lots of time in day care are more likely to be aggressive than children whose moms care for them at home...line up fairly well with common sense.  Furthermore, his data are supported by other findings.
Category = Behavior
Family Building - The Five Fundamentals of Effective Parenting by John Rosemond, 2005,  p. 25 Kids who, from an early age, spend significant time in day-care centers are more likely to have serious behavior problems (e.g., aggressive tendencies), shorter attention spans, more health problems, and later academic difficulties than are children who are taken care of at home by a responsible parent.
Category = Behavior, Development, Disease, Quality
Family Building - The Five Fundamentals of Effective Parenting by John Rosemond, 2005,  p. 26 Karl Marx himself said that the traditional, autonomous, intact family constituted the most formidable obstacle to the establishment of socialist utopian dreams.  In my estimation, when both parents decide to go to work outside the home and put children in day care, this weakens the family.  It puts the children in an environment that is second best.  It exposes parents and children to unnecessarily heightened stress.
Category = Politics, Quality
Freakonomics - A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everying by Steven D. Levitt and Steven J. Dubner  2005,  p. 20 & 23 Why, after all, should the day-care center take care of these kids for free?
The economists decided to test their solution (to late pick-ups) by conducting a study of ten day-care centers in Haifa, Israel.  ...After (a) fine was enacted, the number of late pickups promptly went. . .up. 
...The incentive had plainly backfired. 
...You have probably already guessed that the fine was simply too small. ...As babysitting goes, that's pretty cheap.
...But there was another problem with the day-care center fine.  It substituted an economic incentive for a moral incentive (the guilt that parents were supposed to feel when they came late).  For just a few dollars each day, parents could buy off their guilt.
