The Price of Day Care Can Be High by David Leonhardt, The New York Times, 14-Jun-06 Starting in 1997, the Quebec Family Policy subsidized day care for 4-year-olds at government-approved centers around the province. By 2000, the program had expanded to cover any child not old enough for kindergarten, all the way down to infants. This is universal day care...
Almost a decade after the family policy started, however, there was still a big mystery about it. Nobody had done the work to find out how it had affected children. The province was spending $1.4 billion a year on a grand social experiment, yet no one had bothered to look at the results.
So three economists took up the challenge a few years ago, realizing that the program offered an excellent way to examine a much-debated topic. The three Michael Baker and Kevin Milligan, who are Canadian, and Jonathan Gruber, an American collected data, looked at various measures of well-being since the program started and compared Quebec with the rest of Canada over the same period.
When they finished last year, the answer seemed clear. "Across almost everything we looked at," said Mr. Gruber, an M.I.T., professor, "the policy led to much worse outcomes for kids."
Young children in Quebec are more anxious and aggressive than they were a decade ago, even though children elsewhere in Canada did not show big changes. Quebec children also learn to use a toilet, climb stairs and count to three at later ages, on average, than they once did.
Before you dismiss the researchers as just three more men starting a new assault in the mommy wars, listen to Jane Waldfogel, a leading child-policy researcher (Columbia professor) and the author of the book, What Children Need  (Harvard University Press). "This is a very high-quality paper by high-quality guys," she said. "They're very careful. This is a paper that's going to stand."

Giving Day-Care Cash to Stay-at-Home Parents...
Elena Cherney, The Wall Street Journal, 3-Jul-06
(The Canadian Government) scrapped a multibillion dollar plan...to set up a national day-care system. Instead, the government will start mailing a monthly cash payment...to parents for every child younger than six years old.
...a spokeswoman for Human Resources and Social Development Ministr(y said) "It is not intended to persuade women to make one decision or the other. It's designed to support women in the choices that they make."

The death of motherhood
Melanie Gill, The Daily Mail (Britain)
20-Jul-06
It is nothing short of grotesque that some women are going back into jobs just six weeks after giving birth, abandoning their offspring to the care of a stranger in a nursery or childcare centre.
A host of reputable scientific surveys show that this physical neglect of children by their own mothers is doing untold psychological and neurological damage. Babies are born with their brains only partially formed, and we now know that they need the direct stimulus of their mothers' attention to develop properly.

The death of motherhood
Melanie Gill, The Daily Mail (Britain)
20-Jul-06
Childcare for the under-threes has become one of the great growth industries in modern Britain, as women return to the workplace sooner and sooner after giving birth. But it is storing up untold damage for the future as the bonding process lies in ruins.

Expand parental leave, not day care by Cynthia Whitfield, The Register-Guard (Eugene, Oregon), 06-Aug-06 In poll after poll, parents say they're not spending enough time with their kids. Two in three workers say they would give up some pay for more time with their families, according to a Harvard study.
Rather than heeding this call, businesses and members of the child care industry are pushing for more child care, even sick child care, instead of trying to find ways to better meet the needs of families.
According to Anne Manne, author of Motherhood: How Should We Care for Our Children, "There is an almost complete disconnect between science and politics on the child care question. We should be expanding parental leave, not infant day care."

Expand parental leave, not day care by Cynthia Whitfield, The Register-Guard, 06-Aug-06 Another problem is the high caregiver turnover common in the day care industry. This interferes with bonding, and may lead to a reduced capacity to develop higher reasoning skills, the authors say.
If at all possible, infant day care should not exceed 30 hours a week, (famous child care experts) Brazelton and Greenspan agree. Other experts suggest 20 or even fewer hours.

Expand parental leave, not day care by Cynthia Whitfield, The Register-Guard, 06-Aug-06 ...a recent British government-funded study conducted by the University of London's Institute of Education, found that "high levels of group care before the age of 3, and particularly before the age of 2, were associated with higher levels of antisocial behavior at age 3."
It also found that while high quality care could reduce the "antisocial/worried behavior," it could not eliminate it.
Another British study showed the stress hormone cortisol is 75 to 100 percent higher in the saliva of children attending day care, even after months of adapting to center-based care. Excessive levels of cortisol can compromise brain function and lead to physical problems.

Expand parental leave, not day care by Cynthia Whitfield, The Register-Guard, 06-Aug-06 Both British and American parents consistently overrate the quality of care their children receive, according to child care experts. Experts theorize that parents may be afraid of appearing uncaring if they express dissatisfaction with the place where they drop their children off every day.

Expand parental leave, not day care by Cynthia Whitfield, The Register-Guard, 06-Aug-06 Scandinavian nations subsidize paid parental leave as a better alternative to day care for the youngest children, although subsidized day care is also readily available. Since parents are given a real choice, there is very little use of child care until children are 18 months old.

Expand parental leave, not day care by Cynthia Whitfield, The Register-Guard, 06-Aug-06 Parents may find it difficult to access adequate information about day care in today's media. Studies purporting to show that children in day care suffer no long-lasting emotional damage are widely reported, without comments from experts with a dissenting view.
Conversely, studies critical of child care routinely send reporters running to seek comments from day care advocates.
