Study Finds Daycare Damages Babies Brain Chemistry
ORANGE, Calif., March 29, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Major research firms and universities in America, Canada, and England have arrived at the same conclusion as the new study reported in the Australian Sydney Morning Herald, that “daycare damages babies’ brain chemistry and affects their social and emotional development.”
It was reported, “significant among the reams of research are the so-called cortisol studies, which measured the presence of stress hormones in young babies—consistently finding levels to be higher in children in long hours of day care.” Children in daycares and preschools are not developing properly, and equally as troubling, in later public schooling.
Reports from John Stossel’s ABC report, Stupid in America: Why America’s Public Schools are Failing our Kids, to the recent Ninth Circuit Court ruling giving parents little, if any recourse or say over what is taught in public schools, to news headlines like these, are causing parents alarm:
“New York High School Fosters Sexual (homosexual, heterosexual and bisexual) Experimentation on Campus; Mother arrested after son took cocaine to day care; 9-Year-Old Shot on School Bus; Preschool harms children’s development; Parents Upset Over Explicit Novel Approved for High Schoolers; Teacher confesses to having sex with minors.”
Denise Kanter from MorningStar Educational Network (MSEN) commented, “The study out of Australia is consistent with what is already known about the physical and mental damage that occurs when young children are out of their mother’s care for long hours.”Â Kanter added, “Children must be given a chance to grow up healthy, with consistent teaching of spiritual truths, and that takes more than just keeping young children out of daycare and preschool.Â It takes keeping them out of public schools as well.”
The spokesman for the Christian group suggests, “Just a cursory review of news headlines should be enough evidence to convince Christian parents of the necessity to teach and raise their children in a spiritual and loving home.”
Kanter concluded, “Dr. James Dobson from Focus on the Family and Dr. Tim La Haye, a Pastor and Author have stated that it’s time for Christian parents to get their children out.Â And we agree.Â So through our education resource packages, newsletters, mentors, groups and websites, we provide Christian parents with the tools and confidence it takes to raise and educate their children at home.”
MSEN’s new DVD compilation features riveting testimonies that give hope to parents with preschool and school age children.Â For more information visit: http://www.christianhomeeducation.org/dvd.html
