Default Re: Report finds informal childcare harmful

EDMUND ROY: Challenging is the operative word here. Recent research into some government-run childcare centres has found substantial evidence of negative effects on kids such as anxiety, non-compliance, aggression, sometimes even depression.

There’ve been findings too of early brain development in infancy leading to concerns about infants spending long hours in poor care.

Then there is the question of caretaker turnover which undermines claims that infants receive all essential continuity of care.

Clearly there are no simple answers, but whoever thought that childcare and the question surrounding it was an issue for the last century better start thinking again.

Oh really? Did that take a 2 million dollar study to work out?

You dont dump your kids with a bunch of strangers. Period.
