Quote/Comment

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, Preface I will admit to being surprised--no, amazed--that a whole generation and a half of women who have been so easily enraptured by the suggestion that what they have to give their child is easily replaced by a nanny, babysitter, or day-care worker.
Category = Politics
In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.6 (sarcastically)...if you knew you were going to be recycled and come back as an infant with a choice, you'd choose a mommy, a nanny, a babysitter, or a day-care worker for yourself with equal enthusiasm--right?
Category = Politics
In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.26 I have never, and I mean never, in thirty-two years of radio, had a nanny, full-time babysitter, or day-care center worker ever tell me that after her job experiences she would ever turn her kids over to nannies, day-care centers, or babysitters!
Category = Caregiver
In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.26 Many women wrote me with horror stories about day care. One woman grew up in a home where here mother did day care. She said that almost all of the kids she watched were moody, mean, or rude, or displayed other such bad behaviors--mostly to get attention. Remember that squeaky wheel*?
*From the old saying, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease".

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.29 Dr. Laura, the first time I heard you call day care a warehouse (or day orphanage) I was offended.

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.30 But day care is an enclosed and limited experience where children have an enclosed and limited experience where children have to fight to claim attention, or withdraw from the pain of it all.

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.30 No matter how technologically and aesthetically spectacular a day care is, no matter how prestigious and expensive or cheap and available, there is no way on God's earth it can even compare to, much less surpass, the loving presence of a mother.

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.70 I just love hearing the argument that day care is good for children because they get to become independent from parents (at six months?) and socialize (at one year?) in ways they can't with a momma. At one time, day care was seen as a temporary measure--sad, but sometimes necessary--meant to rescue parents in dire straits. Now, however, some are actually touting day care as superior to care by a mother. If your mother is an unconscious druggie or drunk, running a bordello from her home, immaturely neglectful, or so mentally incompetent as to be nonfunctional, I guess that statement would be true. However that is the rare exception  and not the rule.

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.106-107 (One ex-child-care worker) wrote that she was a preschool teacher in a day-care center before she became a mother. She thought she loved all the kids as though they were hers. They did seem hers in a way, because she spent more time with them than their parents spent; she played with them, kissed their boo-boos, gave them snacks and lunch, changed their diapers, and rocked them to sleep for their naps.
When she later became a mother, she realized that she never had loved those children; she liked them a lot and enjoyed her job. Mostly, thinking back, she felt sorry for them.

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.108-109 I visited at least twenty of these (daycare) "facilities," and I must tell you how shocked and saddened I was by my experience. I can't tell you how many I walked into, and the little tow- and three-year-olds who could talk would say, "My mommy's coming to get me," with little distraught looks on their faces. Or, "When is my mommy coming?" I can't tell you how sad it made me feel to see these kids in these centers with no real love...

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.109-110 I was leaving a grocery store when two day-care workers each rolled a ten-child stroller across the parking lot and into the day-care center. Just as the final stroller was pulled through the door, I glanced up to meet the eyes of a shy, adorable youngster. At most, he was two, as were all the "cargo" of unsmiling, unhappy-looking kids.
I was about to get into my care when he suddenly broke into a frown, threw his little arms toward me, and cried out, "MOMMY!" in the most heart-wrenching voice--and then he started crying. The dour worker glared at me and disappeared with her brood into the day-care center.

In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, 2009, p.110 It's hard to imagine that it doesn't matter to children whether or not they're herded by a nanny, day-care worker, or babysitter, or cuddled by mommy.
