In decades past, the societal norm was for mothers to stay at home and care for the children while fathers went to work and "brought home the bacon." In recent years, things have changed dramatically. These days, mothers who decide to stay at home are in a dwindling minority; most households today consist of two working parents or a single (!) working parent. This leads to the inevitable question: What to do with the kids during the day?
For the majority of these families, the answer is daycare. And for years, pop psychologists and a left-leaning media have been reassuring us that there is nothing wrong with sending children to daycare. But recent statistics and events demonstrate that not only is daycare harmful .. it is arguably dangerous.
The truth about daycare is that daycare centers are not the "caring, nurturing" environments that they and their defenders claim they are. Daycare centers are liberal slaughterhouses of the mind. And I can prove it.
I am a father of three wonderful children: two boys (Micah, age 8 and Caleb, age 2) and one girl (Rebekah, age 3.) For the first three years of Micah's life, my wife stayed at home to care for him. After he had grown out of infancy, we made the choice to send him to a daycare center so that my wife could take a job as a receptionist. As it turns out, that choice was regrettable. Our judgement was temporarily impaired by a lust for material wealth; we wanted to build a new house, and had determined that we could not do it on one income.
The first incident involved a set of toy blocks. I had just finished a day of work and had arrived at the daycare to pick Micah up. Normally, this is obviously something that my wife would have done, but she had an appointment with the pastor of our church. On my way into the daycare center, I paused at the window so I could observe my son at play. The daycare provider had opened up a box of blocks, and Micah had run quickly over to it and helped himself to a large number of them. The other children followed suit, although they did not get quite so many as Micah did. The children then began to sit on the carpet and play with the blocks.
What happened next chills me to this day.
The daycare provider walked over to Micah, looked disapprovingly at his pile of blocks, and then forcibly took nearly half of them away. She then proceeded to give them to the other children, so that they all had roughly the same amount. I thought to myself: What in the name of Heaven is this woman doing? Micah had all of those extra blocks because he had the ambition and initiative to run over to them and pick them up. The other children missed the boat by not being observant and quick enough! What are these people teaching children when they step in and redistribute their blocks -- by force -- to "equalize" things?
It occurred to me that this type of toy policy (strong central control with an emphasis on punishing the successful and rewarding the lazy) was no different than the style of economics practiced in the former Soviet Union and Communist China. The most important lesson that children can be taught is that hard work yields rewards and that those who refuse to work will go without. Yet the message that this daycare women sent was "Lazy children, just sit back and we'll bring your fair share of the blocks to you. Assertive children, shame on you!"
The second incident was the straw that broke the camel's back.
My wife arrived at the daycare center to pick Micah up, and the daycare provider was reading to the children from a book entitled (I swear this is true) Gay And Loving It. As you can probably guess, the book was nothing more than a rambling piece of homosexualist propaganda aimed at children, intended to convince them that the chosen "gay" lifestyle is perfectly normal and acceptable. My wife, as you can probably understand, was outraged. She went out to the car, which we keep well-stocked with Jack Chick tracts, and grabbed a copy of an appropriate one. She then brought it into the daycare center and politely asked the provider to read it, in the interest of fairness to both sides.
What was the response? You can probably guess.
She was told that "preaching is not allowed" and that "we cannot teach any single religion as the truth." Sound familiar, friends? Of course it does. This is the exact mantra that is robotically spewed by the teachers' "labor unions" that control government (pagan) schools. At any rate; that was it. My wife and I immediately pulled Micah out of that horrid daycare center, and she turned in her resignation at her place of employment the very next day. Enough was enough, we had decided, and my wife has been an at-home parent and homeschooler ever since.
So let's review the environment of a typical American daycare center:
If you can't see what the true agenda of America's daycare industry is, then you are either blind or willfully ignorant. There is much evidence to suggest that organized elements of the Communist party either own or control a large percentage of this country's daycare providers. This is a battle that we can win, but we have to win it now, before things get out of hand. Communists are called "Reds" because they have this little habit of spilling the blood of their own people on the soil via assault rifle. It is a thoroughly despicable and dangerous worldview. If we are not committed to saving our children from Communism, how can we call ourselves parents?
