Summary
The central issue of day care is often framed to pit conservatives against liberals, working moms against stay-at-home moms, and feminists against traditional families. But the real conflict, as Robertson argues in Day Care Deception, is between all parents and the day care establishment, a multimillion-dollar lobby with a vested interest in the expansion of subsidized day care services. Robertson reveals how this establishment works to increase its power and silence its critics. Researchers who point to a correlation between aggression among children and too much nonmaternal care have seen their work vilified. Meanwhile, some scholars have disputed the obvious: that the mother-child bond is crucial to early childhood development. The day care lobby keeps pouring more money into elections, and politicians offer more subsidies for commercial day care while parents ask for policy options that would help them stay home with their children. Day Care Deception is a brave and thoughtful book about a contentious debate whose outcome will have profound consequences for our children and our social future. - Publisher
