From here,

A new National Affairs essay highlighting some of the overlooked deficiencies of universal daycare (now a mainstay of the Democratic policy agenda), raises an interesting question: Why is there so little reliable public information on the costs and benefits of such programs?

There is more research than anyone needs on the dangers of certain fabrics used in car seats and backpacks or the risks of drinking from a garden hose or eating conventionally grown fruit. […]

When it comes to daycare — something that instinctively worries many parents — few are willing to take a hard look. The media, which seemingly report constantly on alarming new risks to children, rarely present the public with information from studies on the impact of daycare, especially when the findings suggest that daycare is associated with significant negative outcomes. […]

A deeper reason may be that the psychologists who study daycare have attempted to downplay or put a comforting spin on troubling findings. Just last year, an important study found that the culturally liberal outlook of almost all social psychologists had biased the studies and conclusions they reached. It is likely that a similar outlook, and in particular an unwillingness to present findings that may interfere with women’s progress in the workplace, has similarly harmed the work of developmental psychologists regarding daycare.

Everybody knows that children do better (development, happiness, lack of fear of the world, etc.) when attended to by their parents (exceptions of course for crackhead parents, etc.).  There really just is not any doubt.  Nobody cares for their children as much as their parents. Is there anybody out there who wants to challenge the contents of this paragraph?

This does not necessarily apply to pre-school, as they are about educating and socializing older children for typically limited amounts of the day.  It is really sad to think of very young  children being warehoused.  So very sad.

Probably everybody knows why there are a dearth of studies related to daycare, and why the few that exist show what they show.  It makes a mockery of the often used phrase “it’s for the children“.  It should be an embarrassment to Universities that do the research; it should be an embarrassment to Hillary, who advocates more of it.  Slightly more than half of the children are girls; why does Hillary care for them little?

Now back to our regularly scheduled trainwreck.

    I see all around me, far too many young kids being left at daycare far too often.

    Although I would like to have children (the urge is biological I think), I won’t, unless I’m certain I can be a dad in the old-fashioned fatherhood sense. This means living in the same home as them throughout their childhood and adolescence. Thanks to the “advance” of women, the only certainty about fatherhood is its uncertainty. A father has no control. His future as a father is in the hands of the mother of his children.

    So, I won’t have children. If I did have children, daycare centers would not be needed. My extended family would just love me to have children who they could look after whenever required.

    I don’t think that you will see many studies on this as it the conclusion will not be politically complimentary. This is a gift to business from government. More applicants equals cheaper wages.
    Of course children would be better attended by their parents than someone getting paid hand to mouth wages.

    It should be that way, but I’ve met some single moms whose kids really were better off in daycare. Sitting in front of the TV all day with a sleeve of crackers doesn’t provide children with much stimulation. The solution isn’t more daycare, though; it’s fewer single moms.

    Hillary Clinton on Friday strongly disputed the FBI’s finding that she and her aides were “extremely careless” in their handling of classified information.

    Clinton, giving her first public interviews since the Justice Department’s decision not to press charges against her, said she thought FBI Director James Comey had “clarified that comment, to some extent, pointing out that some of what was thought to be classified apparently was not.”

    “I think the professionals with whom I communicated were very careful about how they handled classified material — as I was over the course of those four years,” the former secretary of State said on CNN’s “The Lead.”

    “I do not believe that all of the professionals that I dealt with in the State Department were careless in handling classified material,” she added moments later, in a separate interview with Lester Holt on MSNBC.

    The position is a striking rebuttal of Comey’s statements. He twice this week called her behavior “extremely careless,” even while asserting it did not violate the law.

    “Certainly, she should have known not to send classified information,” Comey testified before the House Oversight Committee on Thursday.

    “I think she was extremely careless. I think she was negligent. That, I could establish,” he added. “What we can’t establish is that she acted with the necessary criminal intent.”

    Sunshine is right … there are some kids better off with someone other than their mom. but for the most part, kids are better off with their own parents.

    families are so fractured. it’s not simply single moms, it’s the whole thing. where’s the family member telling the stupid single moms to straighten up? to get their act together? to stop being so freakin selfish? or before that … stop treating your husband like crap and be the wife you’re supposed to be and make that marriage work so the kids don’t have to be in a single parent home.

    i was a single mom for four years – four of the darkest years of my life, especially since i was very much all alone – my family is a mess and have never been there for me. the church totally defaulted, esp since i had a little girl with special needs and we couldn’t fit into their idea of how i should be ‘ministered’ to. but i took care of my kids first.

    i did meet some stupid, stupid single moms that didn’t deserve their own children. the only person i have ever intentionally un-friended on fb is a single mom who abandoned her kids to go marry another guy in another state, leaving her two daughters with an alcoholic dad. there was a time i kept her girls for her (were actually the same ages as mine) and the things they’d say, and not say, broke my heart. bitch. she didn’t deserve those kids.

    the most successful working moms are those whose family pitch in and watch their kids for them. the kids never have to go to daycare and never have to worry about who is going to care for them when they’re sick.

    Cill – i don’t blame you one bit. broken families suck.

    i’ve loved little children all my life and have always been really good with them. there have been two times i’ve kept kids in my home … once when i was a single mom b/c i needed a job … and the other since i’ve been married again. the first time it was two little ones, a sister and a brother – sister was the infant who was a premie and it would have cost mom and dad a boatload of money in a childcare facility. they were adorable … and i loved having the brother and sister together – they were absolutely precious together.

    the little girl we’ve kept for the last four years is adorable and will be going into 3rd grade in the fall. her parents have gone thru a divorce (grrrrr), and we have become her stable and safe place. she has especially bonded with my oldest daughter – those two are so much alike it’s not even funny. i am so grateful we’ve been able to provide a safe place for this little girl. mom has not been able to afford to pay me, so i’ve worked out other ways for her to ‘pay’ without money. i’d do it for free, but people need to have a way to ‘pay’ for things, and i am grateful that we are able to keep one little girl out of institutional daycare.

    having said all that … while i do love those kids, i don’t love them like i love my own. i’d hate for my girls to have ever had to be in a situation like that (especially my aspie girl – she would have crashed in any kind of child care situation). there are absolutely some kids who are better off with someone else … but for the vast majority of children, they all NEED both their own mommy and their own daddy.

  21. I had a really interesting conversation about childcare the other day w a gal who plans to be a sahm after working in her later teens and early 20s in childcare facilities. She said even the best places, the most expensive places, have the exact same problems as lesser facilities – mainly that the places were staffed at state mandated levels (never more than) which meant too many kids per staff. As she put it, “we tried but the reality was someone was being basically neglected at all times bc there just weren’t enough people to provide the care these kids would get in a home setting.” Sad. 😦

  22. Also during my own childhood I spent much time in childcare bc my mom was widowed when my brother and I were both under 5. The best care we got was from a gal who was an older widow neighbor, she showed up and offered after hearing of my father’s death. She wasn’t perfect but we always had fun at her house and we were fed well, safe, and she really cared about us. Here and there we spent time in group childcare centers and they did keep us alive but there wasn’t much more care, nurturing, or attachment that that. The caretakers were mostly young women right out of high school, there for “a job” more than bc they loved doing it. We weren’t ever abused or mistreated thank God but it still was like being in a cattle lot. I would have rather been home!

    I was very fortunate, nearly all of my early childhood was almost idyllic. My brothers and I were expected to do hard physical farm work from an early age, and we reveled in it. The closest I came to a caretaker situation was when a “nanny” looked after us while my parents were away. Some things happened that my parents wouldn’t have approved of, but I was never unhappy in the nanny’s care.

    Now onto something a bit more amusing: The Adventures of Super Hillary.

    “There has never been any man or woman more qualified for this office than Hillary Clinton,” President Obama declared this week. Take that Jefferson! Sit your mansplaining ass down, Ike ! Hillary’s here.

    There’s a reason she wears those smocks that make her look like the United Federation of Planets’ ambassador to Rigel 7: She’s just light years ahead of the rest of us.

    Read the “112 reasons (and counting!) Hillary Clinton should be our next president” on her website and you’ll see what I mean (but don’t blame me if you vomit on the keyboard). Of course, you have to wade through an enormous amount of pandering. Free tuition for these people, free health care for those. Look under your seats, everybody! You get a subsidy! And you get a subsidy! Everybody gets a subsidy!

    By the time her list gets to 200, she’ll be raffling off the chance for some under-privileged LBGT preschoolers to push a Koch brother into a volcano.

    But even the pandering is part of her larger sales pitch. There’s just nothing she can’t accomplish because she’s “One Tough Mother” (That’s Reason No. 55). “She knows what’s going on in Laos” (No, really, that’s No. 69). “She’s a progressive—and she’s a progressive who gets things done” (That’s Reason 51).

    So you get it now? Hillary Clinton can do it all. She can make twelve-minute brownies in seven minutes. She can eat barbecue ribs with her hands without getting her white gloves dirty. She brings home the bacon (or cattle futures) and she fries it up in the pan. If there’s a crisis on her plane, not only can she take the throttle, she can speak jive to the passengers in need. She’s more prepared than a Tennessee survivalist and an Eagle Scout combined, and she’s more qualified than George Washington, the guy the Founders thought of when they wrote the job description of the president into the Constitution. She’s a human Swiss Army knife, a ninja, a, general, a CPA, and a soccer mom all rolled into one. As Reason 46 says, “Hillary is prepared to tackle all challenges, including national security — because presidents don’t get to choose which issues come to their desks.”

    But not if the issue arrives via e-mail!
    Again, she can do it all . . . except for one thing. She can’t handle the Internet. It’s her kryptonite. She’s helpless against its foreign ways.

    All you have to do is say “e-mail” and she sheds IQ points faster than a Mr. Potato Head loses his facial features when thrown into an industrial blender. Giving her a computer is as pointless as giving an abacus to a basset hound. When asked if she wiped her server, she responded, “You mean like with a cloth?” In her initial statement about her server set up, she reassured the American people that the server was secure because “it was on property guarded by the Secret Service and there were no security breaches.”

    When I first heard this, I figured her understanding of computers derived from the first Mission Impossible movie. She was worried that Tom Cruise would descend from the ceiling and steal her NOC list or, in her case, her e-mails about yoga. After one particularly sensitive e-mail about how much she struggles with the One Legged King Pigeon Pose, I liked to think she barked out “Double the guards around the server!”

    Great news everyone…under the circumstances
    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/07/09/head-tory-voluntary-party-expects-andrea-leadsom-win/

    The President of the Conservative Party’s National Convention says he “expects” Andrea Leadsom to beat Theresa May and become the next Prime Minister.
    Steve Bell, who chairs the group that represents the party’s local voluntary associations, said MPs will get a “wake-up call” when they discover the extent of support Mrs Leadsom has among ordinary party members.

    Theresa May received the backing of an overwhelming number of MPs in Thursday’s ballot and, given her long experience as Home Secretary, is seen as the establishment favourite for the top job.

    Mrs Leadsom, however, is regarded as holding views that are more in tune with ordinary Conservatives on issues such as fox hunting and gay marriage. Unlike Mrs May, she also campaigned for Britain to leave the EU, a position supported by the majority of Conservative voters.

    Brexit campaign group Leave.EU published a poll of 5,000 Tory members last week, finding that 56 per cent back Mrs Leadsom compared to 44 per cent for Mrs May, putting them at odds with the Parliamentary party.

    The Telegraph quotes Mr Bell as saying: “It is a wake-up call for MPs to start listening to their members and their supporters.”

    “All I would ask is that MPs do listen to their supporters and members. There are Brexiters who are supporting Theresa May, and there are Remainers that support Andrea Leadsom.

    “This is not a Brexit/Remain competition. I do believe that this is fresh start, that politics in Westminster needs a change, Jeremy Corbyn tried to do that and they are kicking against it.

    “From the mood in the people in the country, they want change, they want away from the Westminster village style of politics.”

    That may not have been it. A child could see that murder for what it was, media spin or no. I think that it may be something more subtle.

    Rape is a terrible crime. But beating someone severely is also a terrible crime. Murder is a terrible crime. The horror of the crime does not absolve any of us from the need to be careful about the accusations we level, even if taking that care means that we sometimes do further psychic injury to victims. In a better world, we wouldn’t have to choose between vigorous investigation and generosity toward victims. But laws and ethical standards are made to make the best of this flawed world we have.

    It’s an extremely circular argument, and it reminds me a little bit of arguments that were being made during the Salem Witch Hunts. The idea was that if you denied the existence of witchcraft, that inherently made you a suspect. Because, you know, why would anyone deny the existence of witchcraft unless they were with the witches and wanted to help them get away with it? So it is really a very similar argument.

    “Not long to live” was a theme in all such pieces. YouGov tweeted a similar poll, re voters’ actuarial tables. The GQ piece says, “On the reasonable assumption that leaving the EU would take Britain a minimum of ten years, those of retirement age have little or no stake in the country’s next era.”

    Let us follow this logic to its natural conclusion. People with a terminal illness, or a chronic condition that will, on average, shorten their lives, should be unable to vote. Their stake in the future is smaller than that of people who are healthy. Likewise the obese, whose lives are, on average, shorter than those of the physically fit. The average rich person lives substantially longer than the average poor person — therefore, say leftists, poor people should be unable to vote. White people live, on average, longer than black people. Presumably progressives think that black people shouldn’t be able to vote either.

    Yoda,
    During and after the Jian Ghomeshi trial, the feminists in Toronto were recommending that a whole separate court be set up to deal with sexual crimes. This court would do away with presumption of innocence, burden of proof for the prosecution, cross examination of witnesses, and all the pesky details that derail false accusations.
    These bimbos were serious and thought their request was within reason.

    I don’t think there will be another referendum in forty two years. I don’t think that the European Union can survive in its present form. If they want to get serious about being a super government, they need to hold a Constitutional convention to solve details like electing representatives, et al..

    Even worse, the movie is basically “Man Hating: The Movie”

    *Chris Hemsworth’s character is described as the best part of the movie. Genuinely hilarious, but they portray him as a total idiot.
    *In addition to his character, every single man in the movie is portrayed as either an idiot or asshole.
    *Capping that off, the final battle is a giant “F Men” statement as the Ghostbusters kill the final boss (a giant version of the Ghostbusters logo) by shooting their Proton Packs at its dick.

    It’s easy to imagine the UK government and the EU doing deals behind closed doors, keeping the people of the UK ignorant of what’s really happening. That’s how British sovereignty was highjacked in the past.

    I listened to the Nigel Farage broadcast at 10:14 am. He repeats his determination as a member of the European parliament to report back to the British people on what goes on between the UK and the EU once Article 50 is triggered. The UKIP members of the European parliament could have a crucial role in keeping the public informed, so the trickery of the past won’t be pulled on them again.

    Re: The Left Wants to Ban Old People from Voting

    The Remainy-angsts are too muddle-headed to realize:

    1. The UK joined the Remainy-angsts’ beloved EU in the days when the old people were young.

    2. The Remainy-angsts would disenfranchise their own personal future (unless they all intend to commit suicide at the age of 50).

    I like this:
    There is — I’m told — a Greek proverb that says, “A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they will never sit in.”

    children NEED their dads. except in EXTREMELY RARE circumstances, children NEED both mom AND dad both a substantial amount of time. not a bit here and a bit there … but a LOT. the only time my girls did not spend time with their dad was when he forbid them to see him (which, unfortunately, was a lot). they needed him a lot more than he was willing to spend with them and would even call him, crying, begging to see him.

    the really tragic part of that are all the dads who desperately, desperately long to be a part of their own children’s lives, and the stupid, *#@!$%@!# moms and court system prevent it.

    the divorce system is so huge and lucrative and totally out-of-control. it’s a rampantly growing sickness that keeps feeding itself so it grows larger and larger.
