Quote
The Trojan Horse of Child Care
by Allan Carlson, Ph.D, The Howard Center for Family Religion & Society,
www.profam.org, 29-Jan-98
Substitute child care, in contrast, depends on state subsidy. "Safe, affordable, accessible quality care"...is very expensive.
...State subsidy is necessary, at the margins, to make this system of weakened families and communal child care hold together. G.K. Chesterton was right: There is no economic sense in taking in each other's small children. Ideology and politics, not the marketplace, drives our child care debate. Subsidized non-parental care of infants and toddlers has become in 1998 the Trojan Horse* for building the complete welfare state.
*A subversive group or device placed within enemy ranks (from the hollow wooden horse in which, according to legend, Greeks hid and gained entrance to Troy, later opening the gates to their army.)

The Trojan Horse of Child Care
by Allan Carlson, Ph.D, The Howard Center for Family Religion & Society,
www.profam.org, 29-Jan-98
Significantly, Dr. Greenspan shows that the very nature of child care centers--even excellent and expensive ones--deny three of these critical six needs (ongoing intimate relationships; lengthy emotional dialogues; and long problem-solving discussions with gestures). If your concern is the development of babies and toddlers into healthy, capable, well-adjusted, and productive adults, substitute child care is not only inferior, but damaging to human potential, both economic and personal.

The Trojan Horse of Child Care
by Allan Carlson, Ph.D, The Howard Center for Family Religion & Society,
www.profam.org, 29-Jan-98
To this we need add the overwhelming evidence that commercial child care also poses a special threat to the physical and mental health of children. Children in day care are at nearly 100 percent increased risk for contracting serious, life-threatening diseases such as hemophilus influenza and meningitis. They are four-and-a-half times more likely than home-cared children to contract infections, and nearly three times as likely to need hospitalization. Children in commercial care are also much more at risk of contracting upper respiratory tract infections, gastrointestinal disorders, ear infections, mycobacterium tuberculosis, salmonella, Herpes simplex, rubella, hepatitus A & B, scabies, dwarf tapeworm, pinworms, and diarrhea. Indeed, a recent special issue of the journal PEDIATRICS ANNALS, was devoted to day care diseases, and carried a lead editorial entitled: "Day Care, Day Care: May Day! May Day!" It chronicled the enormous public health problems, a virtual epidemic of childhood disease, caused by this national turn to substitute child care.
