The results of a $200 million federally funded study were reported recently in the New York Times. Kids who spend more than 10 hours a week in daycare are more likely to be disruptive when they get to grade school.
What the study didn’t show was that preschoolers who spend most of their time at home with their mommies generally don’t live long enough to go to grade school because mommy either go stark raving mad or stoney broke or some combination of the two that forces the family unit to move deep into the woods, and lead short, nasty feral lives The study also showed that the behavorial differences are slight and well within normal range, and that parents and genetics are by far the strongest influence on how children behave. Imagine that! Parents being the strongest influence on how children behave! Who knew?
