Yes, Minister, nurseries ARE bad for children, so why don't you do more for stay-at-home parents?
In this bold article, psychologist Oliver James is quoted as saying, "‘Studies show that daycare is less good for under-threes than child minders, who are less good than nannies, who are less good than close relatives, who are less good than parents.’
Let me just reiterate ... Who are the best care-givers? Parents. Yes, parents. Mothers, fathers ... Do not let the government, or the pressure of our modern society, or peer pressure make you believe otherwise.
