Mem Fox sparks new row claiming care hurts baby brains, by Matthew Fynes-Clinton, The Courier-Mail (Brisbane, Australia), 24-Oct-08 SENDING babies to long periods of daycare is like maltreating the family puppy, according to children's author Mem Fox.
"Putting babies as young as two weeks into child care for the first year of their life, for 60 hours a week, will cause their brains damage," she said in article to be published in tomorrow's Qweekend magazine.
She added: "For me, the corollary is buying a puppy, putting it in kennels for the whole of the week and playing with it at the weekends. "I couldn't do it to a dog, so I certainly couldn't do it to a child."

The study...recommends that all children should where possible be cared for by parents at home during the first 12 months of life.
The research, which draws on a wealth of scientific and psychological studies, as well as government data, is bound to reignite the fraught debate on whether overexposure to formal childcare is bad for very young children.
...it cites research from Britain and the US suggesting that children who spend too long in formal childcare at too young an age may suffer from long-term effects, including behavioural problems, aggression, antisocial behaviour, depression and an inability to concentrate
