THE STATE AS MOTHER
or FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE,
afwuf.org, 6-Apr-05
(Alberta Federation of Women United for Families)

 
...even in the best daycares, (the child is with) dozens of other toddlers, exposing him to countless bacterial and viral infections. Rates of Acute Otitis Media AOM or severe ear infection have nearly doubled since the 1970’s. Jerome O Klein, editor of Pediatric Annals attributes this increase largely to daycare. “Attendance in group child daycare is one of the most important risk factors for otitis media.” he says, adding, “The more children in the daycare group, the more exposure to respiratory pathogens and the higher the rate of respiratory tract infections including AOM.” Compared with children cared for at home, children in daycare centres suffered 50% more infections during a one month period and were almost 5 times as likely to be hospitalized, than kids cared for in other settings.

THE STATE AS MOTHER
or FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE,

Children in daycare develop what has been called the “Lord of the Flies” *syndrome after the well known novel about the behaviour of children stranded on an island. Kids in daycare bond with other kids rather than with their parents or other adults. Increased aggression, defiance and disobedience are the result. This has been well researched.
* Lord of the Flies = 1954 novel by William Golding about a shipwrecked band of civilized young children who become savages

Sympathetic MP’s tell us that they have never had even one ordinary Canadian woman ask for a fully funded government daycare program. This idea is not coming from grassroots Canadians. The pressure has largely come from the civil service unions who see this as a way of increasing wages for daycare workers and increasing their own membership and influence, from day care operators who see government tax money as more reliable than having to do their own collections and from radical feminists, particularly in the Liberal caucus, who see this as a way to liberate even more women from the drudgery of home and children.

The government can never replace Mom and Dad and has no business meddling in the parental right to determine who will look after children. Neither should the state promote and finance one childcare choice over any other. This obviously has nothing to do with what’s in the best interest of children. It is an ideologically driven plan to control Canadian families, literally from the cradle.

Day Care Settings Are a Significant Source of Indoor Allergens
sciencedaily.com, 6-Jun-05

Researchers studying day care facilities in the South have found the facilities to be a significant source for indoor allergen levels.  A new study...found detectable levels of seven common allergens from fungus, cats, cockroaches, dogs, dust mites, and mice in each facility tested...
Exposure to indoor allergens has been shown in previous studies to increase the likelihood of developing asthma or allergic diseases, especially in vulnerable children.
Both licensed family day care homes and child care centers are represented in the study.

Day Care vs. Breastfeeding
The Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society, 11-Oct-05
Placing young children in day care exposes them to sharply increased risk of infection...
This new study* does show that breast-feeding helps to mitigate the bad health outcomes of day care, but only as relatively small percentage of the young children who end up in day-care centers receive even this partial protection. In our mixed-up contemporary world, the lucky children are the ones born into less affluent families where they are cared for and breast-fed at home and not into the wealthier families where their careerist mothers drop them off at the sources of contagion we call day-care centers.

*L. Dubois and M. Girard, "Breast-feeding, day-care attendance and the frequency of antibiotic treatments from 1.5 to 5 years: a population-based longitudinal study in Canada," Social Science & Medicine 60 [2005] 2035-2044
