In this month's Child there is this blurb: (all typos may be attributed to me)
There's no difference in the activity levels or emotional development of 3 yos who attend daycare and those who are cared for int he home, according to a new study from the Univeristy of Bristol. . The research is part of an ongoing study of the health and well being of 14,00 kids born in the early 1990s. One of the more surprising findings - facotrs that we thought that would affect a child's temperment such as whether a mom works make no difference" says co study author. Parenst who WOH when their children are small can be reassured that there employment is likelty to have a negative effect. Of course quality dc is important as is loving, responive interaction with parents.
I;d liek to see more of the study - but any thoughts? Would you believe one (the old disproven one ;-) ) over the other? Why or why not?
