Confirming What I always Believed in my Heart May 5, 2007
When I was in college studying to be a doctor I had to decide then about my future since more than being in medicine, I wanted to be a mother of a large family. Though I am sure many women doctors find it possible to juggle both, I knew that I wanted to be home for my children and that there was no way that I would put them in daycare.
Then, after four children I found myself as a single mom with no support from their father. I was sure I was going to have to put them in daycare, but due to prayer and determination (knowing deep in my heart that daycare ruins children), I was able to make enough money tutoring and again my children were spared.
All this determination was without reading this EYE OPENING book to the dangers and destruction of daycare in our society. I have seen the damage daycare (and simply not being with and bonding with their mother) with many children who are now needy and unable to bond properly as adults in marriage.
Before a child is sent to be cared for outside the home, and away from his mother, the parent should be required to read this book. Even mothers who have no support will find a way (as I did) when they realize the dangers are so great to their children and their future.
Come home Mom! Feb 26, 2007
Here's a book that supports what we all know deep down: Moms are the best people to raise their children. Anything anyone can do to make it easier for Moms to be healthy at home would be welcome. The stonger the family, the stronger the nation. Conversely, the weaker the family, the weaker the nation. More than ever, with the barrage of media and other dangers, our homes need smart, savvy and confident Moms. Moms who follow their hearts, and spiritual promptings. Moms have more potential to influence their children than anyone else. They are absolutely key to family stability. That is why the adversary tries so hard to undermine motherhood and the family. He is all too aware of the unfathomable power that they hold for good. Take note Dads! Help your wives to come home and tell them every day how fabulous they are (the world is not telling them this).
Excellent overview of current and future childcare issues Sep 28, 2005
Describes the problems with child care and why the 'system' is setup the way it is. Great read.
Right topic, wrong book Apr 9, 2003
There are lots of good arguments against the widespread use of non-family childcare where there is not enough individual attention provided for young children to develop properly. This is not one of them.
This is a pop-psychology mish-mash with a very weird political agenda behind it. I wasted several days reading hoping that something would give it merit. In the end it was just time wasted. And this is coming from someone who agrees with the basic concepts! Yeah, it's that bad.
The Best Book I have ever read on the horrors of child care. Apr 14, 1999
This book was so inspiring, it is a shame that this book is not on the best seller list. Each chapter is written by a different expert in the field of child care. From pediatricians to psychologist and even a child care czar that owns many day care institutions, they all agree of the damage that child care does to this precious individual trying to mature. It really is a must reading for any who have wondered what has happened to America and our children.
