Based on data from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Study of Early Child Care, a longitudinal study of approximately 1,300 children, the authors looked at associations between the amount, quality and stability of child care and mother-child interactions when the children were 6, 15, 24 and 36 months old. Families and their children were recruited from 10 research sites across the United States. Twenty-four percent of the recruited families were members of an ethnic minority. According to the findings, children who regularly spend time in nonmaternal care have "somewhat less positive" interactions with their mothers than children who spend less or no time in nonmaternal care.

Extractions: Over the course of a child's life, there is perhaps no time period that is more rewarding for parents, or more difficult, than from infancy to the age of two or three. With children requiring more care at infancy and in the months that follow than at any other time, parents mettle is truly tested with early morning or late night feedings, purchasing an endless supply of diapers, and frequent doctors visits. Conversely, children's first steps and first words offer parents overwhelming rewards for their efforts. Surrounding the practice of child rearing are countless resources that parents can utilize to help them in their quest to raise healthy, well-adjusted kids. Included herein are links to associations and organizations that relate specifically to babies and toddlers. Iowa State University, Ames: Lesia Oesterreich: National Network for Child Care
