"A Schoolhouse Built by Hobbes" by Bryce Christensen, page 113-115, Family Policy Review, Volume 1, Number 2, Fall 2003 (The Child-Care 'Crisis' and Its Remedies)
 
Among the millions of young parents who daily leave their young children in day care, many quell pangs of parental guilt with the thought that such "professional" care will foster their children's cognitive development and thus give their children an educational advantage...
However...day-care researchers--and pliant journalists--carefully control what parents hear about day care and what they do not.
And parents would be deeply distressed to learn just how much day-care education impairs their children's emotional development and their ability to love, give, and share.
(Also, the) putative* intellectual advantages of day care look particularly dubious...

"A Schoolhouse Built by Hobbes" by Bryce Christensen, page 116-117, Family Policy Review, Volume 1, Number 2, Fall 2003 (The Child-Care 'Crisis' and Its Remedies)
 
The studies implicating day care...in problematic behavior in children are by no means obscure: They are familiar to all experts in the field of child development research. But there are probably significantly fewer such studies in print than there should be. Child psychologist Jay Belsky of the University of London has written of how day-care research that turns up "evidence of [day-care] group differences that prove to be unpopular" may well be "withheld from publication." This bias is remarkably pervasive. Professional journals collaborate with the mass media to keep the public image of day care positive.
Because of this vigilant gatekeeping, research showing that day care makes children more likely to hit, kick, and swear has received relatively little play.

"A Schoolhouse Built by Hobbes" by Bryce Christensen, page 119, Family Policy Review, Volume 1, Number 2, Fall 2003 (The Child-Care 'Crisis' and Its Remedies) ...some day-care defenders adopt a riskier and more revealing strategy in their efforts at defending day care: that of reinterpreting the findings so as to make children's troublesome behavior seem positively virtuous.
Time (magazine) suggested that the children day-care researchers labeled "aggressive" might better be labeled "spunky and independent"...
