Time to put down knives and talk about child care
by Rodney Chester, The Courier-Mail   (Queensland, Australia)
4-May-09
 
(Brisbane lawyer and mother Tempe Harvey) cites ... research which show long-term child care is potentially damaging to children. Her aim is "to make Australians aware of the catastrophic effect that the insitutionalisation of today's children will have on them as individuals and on society at large 30 years from now".
She argues that all childcare funding be redistributed to primary care parents, who could choose to pay for childcare services or just consider it income if they choose to not work and care for  their children themselves.

The Flip-Flop Factor: Why Day Care Kids Don't Play Outside
by Tara Parker-Pope, The New York Times 
6-May-09
 
Outdoor play at day care centers is often stifled because a child arrives wearing flip-flops or without a coat or because teachers donít feel like going outside.
Those were some of the surprising findings from a new study of childrenís physical activity in day care settings.
Many of their answers were unexpected. Day care workers keep children inside if they show up in flip-flops rather than sneakers or if they donít have a coat on a chilly day. Sometimes, the entire class is kept indoors if one child doesnít have appropriate clothes for outdoor play.
...Some (child care) workers said outdoor play is too much trouble because it requires time to bundle up kids during cold weather. Other staff members just said they didnít like going outside.

Slow the Preschool Bandwagon
by Chester E. Finn Jr., The Washington Post  15-May-09
 
For all its surface appeal, universal preschool is an unwise use of tax dollars.
(Part of the energy behind universal pre-K is school systems -- and teachers unions -- maneuvering to expand their own mandates, revenue and membership rolls.
...the overwhelming majority of studies show that most pre-K programs have little to no educational impact (particularly on middle-class kids)

Chester E. Finn Jr. is the author of Reroute the Preschool Juggernaut.

Feminist pioneer's rethink: 'a woman's place is in the home'
The Sunday Herald  (Glasgow, Scotland)
16-May-09
(From an article discussing The Trouble with Working Women, a two-part BBC documentary)
According to ongoing research by Jay Belsky, a professor of psychology at Bribeck College, Pizzey's* fears are being borne out.
Research done in America...claims to show that the more time young children spend in care in their early years, the more aggressive and disobedient they will be by the time they reach primary school. Belsky said the quality of  the care did not change his findings.
...He added: "I think there is some reason to question full-time childcare beginning very early in life."

The myth of having it all
by Susan Flockhart, The Sunday Herald  (Glasgow, Scotland)
16-May-09
(From an article discussing The Trouble with Working Women, a two-part BBC documentary)
When former children's laureate Michael Morpurgo said working mothers were harming their children's long-term development by sending them to nursery from a n early age, it prompted an outpouring of blogs such as: "If you bought a puppy would you put it into a kennel in the morning and pick it up in the evening?... So why have babies and put them in a nursery?"

The myth of having it all
by Susan Flockhart, The Sunday Herald  (Glasgow, Scotland)
16-May-09
(From an article discussing The Trouble with Working Women, a two-part BBC documentary)
...when psychologist Jay Belsky suggests children who spend a lot of time in daycare are more often disobedient at school, prompting (Sophie) Raworth to question the wisdom of heaping guilt onto working parents heads. Intrigued by his response - that guilt isn't always bad -
I call the professor at his Birkbeck College office. "People often say, Oh but that's going to make parents feel guilty, as if that were the functional equivalent of psychological murder," he says...

Day care, insensitive parenting stressors
UPI.com, 19-May-09
Day--care-center-based child care and insensitive parenting might have lasting effects, U.S. researchers (Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development) suggest.
The study, published in the the journal Child Development, said the children who, during their first three years, had mothers who were more insensitive and/or spent more time in center-based child care, whether of high or low quality, were more likely to have the atypical pattern of lower levels of cortisol (a stress-responsive hormone) just after awakening when they were 15 years of age, which could indicate higher levels of early stress. These findings held even after taking into consideration a number of background variables -- including family income, the mothers' education, the child's gender and the child's ethnicity...
