Policy Implications
Despite the fact that the latest research confirms the importance of attachment, we are paradoxically calling for expanded government support of daycare. The new daycare ... research is being presented in a way that ignores unpopular, factual findings and instead is media-packaged to persuade Americans of the need for higher taxes and new federal programs. When daycare is presented not as an option, but as the model for the future, we have to ask ourselves, why?
...we are in danger of prescribing the poison.
...we are prescribing institutional solutions for all families that will result in more familial disconnection...

One-Size Solution Won't Work
The push for a federally-supported, universally-available system of daycare is the mission of many child advocacy organizations. Those who speak out to "improve and expand" daycare as we currently provide it often state that government support would not affect those who choose not to use it. This is dangerously naive. Those that are free to choose will be "free" at a financial price. Across the economic spectrum, many parents will feel forced to seek employment and take their children elsewhere to be cared for by others. With little societal support or validation for the role of the at-home parent, many parents may succumb to the obvious economic incentive of "free" daycare. If government only extends financial incentives for daycare options, extended school programs, and other parental substitutes, we will be eroding support for the healthy autonomous families and communities that can and do exist.

The Needs of children and Their Families
Programs that further take children out of their parents' hands are the last thing that families need.

...Rather than forward a social-political agenda for expanding the number of children in daycare (and the hours spent there), why not commit ourselves to protecting every parent's opportunity to spend time with her or his children. We can support family leave and workplace reform, substantial tax breaks for children, neighborhood schools, and parent education which recognizes and supports the value of what parents do for their children.
