The Problem with Daycare
by Karl Zinsmeister,
The American Enterprise

May/June 1998, page 17
Childrearing of adequate quality is inherently resistant to streamlining.  "Raising several children is a project that exacts a constant alertness and attention," comments writer George Gilder, something social engineers "don't remotely understand when they urge that 'society' do it."  Pediatrician Herbert Ratner worries that "nature goes out of its way to give each baby a private tutor.  We go out of our way to develop a litter situation."  Substitution of group care for parent care is both unnatural and impractical, he argues, and it will eventually be regretted.

I suggest an...analogy for the typical day care atmosphere might be a nursing home.  There is often the same well-intended but ultimately depressing air.  As one mother described full-day centers, "you go in there, and all these children are clutching their little possessions, and they're looking around.  They don't have any concept of time, so when a door opens, they all look up, and when they see you're not their mother, they look back."

The American Enterprise

May/June 1998, page 18
Almost all day care observers eventually comment on the constant hubbub. 
"I couldn't stand the noise.  From sun-up to sun-down, voices talking, talking." writes Anne Husted Burleigh.  "People," she argues, "were not made for babble."  "For ten hours a day, these kids have to interact with about 20 or 30 kids," says day care worker Katie Humes.  "Imagine if we adults had to constantly be trying to get along with that many people."  For lots of children, suggested author Vance Packard after making a series of day care visits, the daily experience "must be like enduring a nine-hour cocktail party."

The Problem with Daycare
by Karl Zinsmeister,
The American Enterprise

May/June 1998, page 19
(Daycare)...means several things for children, comments family researcher David Cayley.  "it means separation from the day-to-day world of home and neighborhood, it means the loss of the opportunity to do what you want when you want to do it, including sometimes just doing nothing at all.  And it means the loss of privacy and solitude."
