Post on teachers.net chatboard, 19-Aug-05, by blisshawk We were a small daycare.  One adult to every 8 children.  Diapers often went unchanged until just before parents were expected.  Babies were left to cry in cribs.  Who can hold 2 babies while 2 toddlers are having a tantrum and hanging on you?  No one washed their hands.  Parents dropped off kids and were told that their child usually stopped crying shortly.  Yes, they stopped, when their voices were gone, they got tired of clinging to the doorknobs and they dropped to sleep in fitful exhaustionOlder kids constantly trampled and battered small ones.

People who can tear apart the early bonding by leaving their children with people outside their immediate families only have their material wants at hand and foremost in their hearts.  They think nothing of what this does to their dear infants.  If you were to read up on psychopathy, you would learn that it is one of the top theories that "unbonding" in years 0-5 that causes children to forever see people as objects. 
...For those who say they must warehouse their children outside of their own loving care, they often site financial reasons.  The cost of daycare makes this argument incongruent.  With one working parent and the savings of daycare bills, most people can manage.  If you live in an area where this will not work, then for the sake of your cherubs, move and put their needs ahead of your wants.  There is nothing a child wants more than mother.  There is nothing a child needs more than mother. 
...After a child spends 9 months in your body, it is unnatural to then store them away 8-9 hours where they have no contact with you.  People will say a happy mother makes a happy child.  It should be the other way around.  Ask a child if they are happier with mother at work.  If they say yes, then something is already terribly wrong.

Post on teachers.net chatboard, 19-Aug-05, by BlueMonday ...As far as the feelings toward the children in the daycare where I worked, I freely admit that I did not and could not care as deeply for the children as their parents.  In fact, as...I speak with brutal honesty, there were children that I was very fond of and others that got on my last nerve on a regular basis.  Many of my co-workers admitted that they felt the same way.  I can not say truthfully that I LOVED any of them...

"Thank you so much"
...I worked at (a commercial daycare center) when I was 16 after school each day. I hurt every day watching those poor children. Some cried all day, some acted out terribly all day, some seemed fine with it all. But the funny thing is that I am wondering which is worse? Being fine with it or expressing themselves?
I also worked a hair salon across the street from the day care about a year later. The hair people told me that they had to contact the police because the teachers yelled so loudly at the children outside everyday, that the hair people couldn't take it anymore! Now that is sad. Looking back I remember the teachers absolutely not caring about those children. I played and cared for them more than those teachers did by far. And being that I was 16, I could only work there for a few months. I often wonder what happened to those children.
Thank you for reminding me of what I experienced at that day care. And that is one of the better ones. I will work night, weekends, do whatever I have to do to not put my babies through that hell.

University of Tulsa Alumni Blog, posting by "Merica", 1-Sep-05 I've worked in a daycare (when I was 18), and I cried every single day.
I was encouraged not to pick (the children) up if I could avoid it, because that was "spoiling them".

E-mail to this site from Meagan S-L, "Daycare", 13-Sep-05 I am so glad to find your web-page. It is nice to know there are people out there who not only have worked in daycares as I have, but people who hated it as much as I did.
I will never work in a daycare again, nor will my child ever attend one. There were countless days where I would call my husband crying on my lunch break and tell him of the appalling things that were going on around me.
...I do not think I will ever forget those (kids') faces, knowing that they were left behind in that Hell to grow up like a pack of wild animals with teachers who do not care...

E-mail to this site from Debdcs, "Thank you for listening", 16-Sep-05 Well, to be short and sweet I worked at a VERY WELL KNOWN learning center for 15 years. ...I have my credentials and my CDA*...
I recently quit due to the total chaos that was taking place on a daily basis!!!
The children had no stability whatsoever...it was a joke to say "learning center". The only thing they were learning was how to be involved in chaos and turbulence!!!
I have not been sick once since I left...need I say more? the children were constantly coming to school sick, spreading the germs like wildfire...
