Thanks olihan-no it wasn't-i think it was about nurseries not providing good enough care and young children being much better off at home with one to one care. Unless i was still asleep when i 'heard' it?!
What a load of old cock: not one mention of the possibility of men staying at home with their children, never mind the fact that there's actually something unnatural about locking women up with young children and turning them into domestic applicances: people used to just take their children along with them as they went about their business, not spend years fingerpainting and singing songs.
"Next thing we know we'll be damaging them unless we stay at home at their exclusive convenience until they're 30"
Ummmm, not really.
And it's not just Steve Biddulph. There are a lot of child psychologists, neuroscientists and respected academics who have also raised concerns - NOT about working mothers specifically, but about the affect of group day care on the emotional development of children from 0 - 3.
