In this article, the writer first asks what is turning America's children into murderers and psychopaths? The writer then notes that Brian C. Robertson's "Day Care Deception: What the Child Care Establishment Isn't Telling Us" implicitly asks this question at the beginning of his text, by opening his book about day care not with images of a child care facility, but with a high school shooting. The writer points out that Robertson has a simple answer to the complex questions that arose after the flurry of national self-examination that occurred after the shootings at Columbine High School, in the nation's heartland. The writer relates that Robertson blames the institutionalization of day care as a norm within the American cultural fabric for the increased violence in society and the alienation of modern youth. The writer concludes that Robertson assumes that there is an easy choice between day care or nothing, the traditional one-salary American family and the complete institutionalization of childcare, while for many working families, care may be a combination of love from two parents, grandparents, older siblings, friends, as well as day care.
