Effects of Nonmaternal Care on Children: Research Evidence and Popular Views.
Etaugh, Claire
Research on the effects of nonmaternal care on preschool children and writings of childrearing authorities on this topic in the popular press indicate that: (1) high quality nonmaternal care does not appear to have adverse effects on the young child's maternal attachment, intellectual development, or social-emotional behavior; (2) child-care books and magazine articles appearing during the last 20 years have tended to present a more negative veiw of nonmaternal care; and (3) a shift between the 1960's and 1970's has occurred in the direction of a more favorable attitude toward working mothers and nonmaternal care.
