Ships Without A Shore: America's Undernurtured Children  by Anne Pierce, ©2008,  p. 56
 

Rather than ask the big, important questions such as, Are our children thriving or are they floundering under the new approach to child-rearing?, researchers assume the children are OK, assume that more quality day care is the benchmark of social progress, and proceed to the question of how society can best approach that benchmark.

In 1976, Jean-Francois Revel wrote The Totalitarian Temptation. Revel analyzed the rhetoric and methods of the advocates and apologists of communism. The methods he described are strikingly similar to the methods used in this country to support the idea that full-time childcare is the preferred alternative to parental care and that children are “just fine” with minimal input from their parents

The idea of childhood has been so thoroughly upended that it is the “new normal” to put babies into day care centers…

Ships Without A Shore: America's Undernurtured Children  by Anne Pierce, ©2008,  p. 70 The American experiment with day care has been like the trying on of a new hat, way too large, and insisting that it fits because it only comes in one size. We have insisted that babies and infants are ready for group environments because it is the only conclusion our modern agenda permits.

Ships Without A Shore: America's Undernurtured Children  by Anne Pierce, ©2008,  p. 74 The opportunities for the baby to attach to one special person are obviously less if he or she is subject to a series of caregivers and even less if she is subject to the crowed and turbulent world of day care where many other children compete for adults' attention and where the job of care giving by its nature, prohibits the care giver from treating one child as "special." Professor Alice Sterling Honig argues that day care workers do not usually make good surrogates for parents because of this fact. Care givers, she warns, "cannot by their cheerful daily ministrations substitute for that intense intimate relationship between a parent and child."

Leach* further intones:

An outside care giver has less reason than a mother to celebrate an infant and therefore needs less cause to be indifferent to him. A nursery worker has less reason still to celebrate this infant because she has others to care for who may overload her or whom she may prefer.

*Penelope Leach, famous British child care expert

Megan Gunner, Director of the Human Psychobiology Lab at the University of Minnesota, has found that social relationships control cortisol levels (an indicator of stress) in infants and young children. “The most profound discovery was that 70-80 percent of children in center-based care show ever-increasing levels of cortisol across the day, with the biggest increases occurring in toddlers.

Now, with so many children in day care from infancy, with so many who never had a chance to attach to their mothers in the first place and who never received consistent reliable nurturing, researchers are seeing more of the aggressive, uncivil behavior which is often the result of being insufficiently brought-up and insufficiently loved. As more and more children enter the ranks of the institutionally raised, we see more and more children who distance themselves from others and who harden themselves in order to avoid pain.

Children in day care often exhibit low tolerance of frustration and elevated aggressiveness. Yale Professor Edward Zigler, in a summary of many studies on day care, concluded that children raised as such are more immature as adults and tend toward “assertiveness, aggressiveness and peer rather than adult orientation.
