Mothering Denied - The sources of love, and how our culture harms infants, women, and society
by Dr. Peter Cook, ©2009, p.73
Some childcare advocates argue that infants are being properly returned to group care with multiple carers*, as in a tribe; but they ignore the fact that, uniquely in the history of our species, this policy raises infants in institutions that do not include their mothers or anyone having an enduring bond with the child, let alone any real love for these very young children.

Despite many warnings, our brave new world* still supports a vicious circle, as the increasingly powerful and wealthy childcare industry profits from center-based daycare. The influential gatekeepers promote its growth, and the early education industry, also...

It is a curious irony, that while feminism campaigned for men to take a more equal share in parenting, institutional childcare is staffed almost exclusively by women, since fears of pedophilia deny children any experience of father-figures while they are in childcare. A further anomaly is that the childcare industry is staffed by women who are generally among the lowest paid in our society.

At the Institute for the Study of Children, Families and Social Issues, in London, Professor Ted Melhuish pointed to the case of Sweden as evidence of what parents might want if they had a real choice, “The Swedish case is very revealing—there was high-quality infant care available to all and heavily subsidised. It was widely used in the 70s and 80s, but in the early 90s, parental leave was increased and now there is remarkably little use of childcare under 18 months. Parents voted with their feet”.

Yet Belsky’s further question as to whether lengthy parental leave and support would actually cost less than the consequences of their absence has not yet been honestly faced. Belsky’s use of the word consequences suggests that the costs of any adverse impacts of childcare on the developing child should also be included. At present, these are never taken into account.
Since economic arguments and pressures are so often used to get mothers back into the ‘workforce,’ and infants into early childcare, this policy is overdue for a full economic analysis that takes account of all the ‘externalities’ and ‘collateral damage’ that economists find it so easy to ignore and so hard to evaluate. If they think that this collateral damage matters, but they cannot put a price on it, they should say so.
Evidence already available, and outlined in earlier chapters, shows that the full costs of subsidizing childcare, so that the ‘economy’ may benefit from ‘getting mothers into the workforce,’ may be very great. Consider the potential costing in just five areas:
i) Breastfeeding, ii) School classrooms, iii) Societal effects, iv) Quality of relationships, v) Increased stress

Mothering Denied - The sources of love, and how our culture harms infants, women, and society
by Dr. Peter Cook, ©2009, p.79-80
Ignoring research showing the possibly serious and long-term risks involved, childcare advocates still sometimes talk as if infants—even from a few weeks of age—can be safely reared in childcare centers, with no need for mothering during this time. A powerful and costly childcare ‘industry’ has grown almost exponentially, with a vested interest in early, long-day childcare. It is generally presented as offering early education, and it often has large public subsidies.
