The Invention of Day Care How “researchers” and reporters, shrinks and bureaucrats have used their own personal choices and lots of wishful thinking to create the sad myth of “good” day care.  By Tom Zoellner, Reprinted from Men's Health Magazine, September 1999, manslife.com

look at the (thought) process followed by Barbara Vobejda, whose piece (in the March 1, 1999 edition of the Washington Post) on the Harvey (daycare) study had such an impact. A working mom, she’s certainly no stranger to child-care issues; she’s been writing about them for most of the decade.
The Harvey study is just 18 pages long, and Vobejda claimed to have "read the whole study." Why would a seasoned beat reporter omit necessary information from her story and then let it run, uncorrected, on page one?

So would Vobejda consider correcting some of the misconceptions in her story, to help readers better understand the meaning of the study? "No. I mean, what would we have written? It wasn’t as if the finding was wrong. There wasn’t anything to correct, really. If you had come to a different conclusion, then I would have felt differently about the study."
It is both a candid and an astonishing admission:
The fact that the sample was skewed went unmentioned in her story because Harvey’s conclusion jibed with prevailing day-care wisdom.
"I think if it had led to a conclusion that (daycares were not OK)," Vobejda says, "then that would have led me to say we shouldn’t even write about it…"

So you’ll get no bad news about day care in the Washington Post (newspaper).

The Invention of Day Care By Tom Zoellner, manslife.com, September 1999 GET A HANDLE ON THE DECISION
With so many alienated kids showing up in headlines in the past few years, it's only prudent to consider the potential effects of day care.  Deciding what kind of childhood your kid has is as big a decision as you're likely to make.  You wouldn't buy a stock or a car or a house based on nothing but feel-good information.  Why do the same with day care?
Do the research.  Don't accept the conventional wisdom.
