Mothering Denied - The sources of love, and how our culture harms infants, women, and society
by Dr. Peter Cook, ©2009, p.40
Two large research projects in the UK have reported results that add to the cause for concern.
The study on the effective provision of preschool education found that, “high levels of group care before the age of three (and particularly before the age of two) were associated with higher levels of anti-social behavior at age three”

Despite the earlier findings of the NICHD Network, and those of other studies, some childcare advocates have continued to claim there is no evidence of harm from childcare if it is of ‘high quality.’ This not only denies accumulating evidence to the contrary, but also ignores the overriding fact that much childcare for infants cannot (and never will) meet standards of ‘high quality.’

Belsky described a ratio of 1 carer to 5 children under two years of age as being “nobody’s idea of quality,” but rather “a license to neglect”
...Ronald Lally, a world expert on child-care matters, ...calls a 1:5 ratio a ‘ratio for neglect’.

If there are large government subsidies and economies of large scale, childcare can be a very profitable industry.

(In 2005) Steve Biddulph presented a popular summary of much evidence in his book Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery? He said that, in a nutshell, childcare has been “too much, too young and for too long”

In a nursery with other babies, he hears the distress of those who cry while he waits his turn to be bottle-fed by an unrelated carer* who doesn’t actually love him. Even if he has the chance to become attached to her, she may at any time ‘move on’ and be replaced by someone else. Such changes frustrate any attempts by the infant to form stable secondary attachments; he may just give up trying to do so.

Mothering Denied - The sources of love, and how our culture harms infants, women, and society
by Dr. Peter Cook, ©2009, p.72
Potential mothers and mothers with young families were increasingly pressured into the workplace, where they were of more value to ‘the economy’; meanwhile they were assured that their infants and young children could safely be reared in childcare for 40 or 50 hours a week.
This whole agenda...denies the importance of mothering, and ignores the precautionary principle. In other words, it reverses the normal burden of proof that it is the responsibility of the proponent of a massive environmental change to establish that it will not—or is very unlikely to—result in significant harm to those most likely to be affected, especially when they are young human beings at the most vulnerable time in their lives.

Yet, more and ever more subsidized early childcare is widely advocated and created, while all the evidence, inconsistencies, and contraindications that this involves continue to be ignored. What would Betty Friedan* have thought if she had realized that she had effectively promoted a situation where many of tomorrow’s ‘sisters’ are “trapped in the concentration camps” of their childcare institutions...?

*Betty Friedan (1921 - 2006) was a famous American feminist activist
