"...findings showing a link between long hours of non-maternal care for young children and aggressive behaviour." - The Daycare Generation

Daycare generation are now the students throwing tantrums over safe spaces: "Then, it occurred to me that this generation of students were probably the first to be put in heavy-duty long hours in nursery care. And this, dear reader is what we produce. Not robust adults thirsting for challenge and rigour, but tender toddler-adults making obscene demands and throwing tantrums when denied it. We know long hours in nursery care can cause aggression, and we certainly have that from the Social Justice Warriors. 

“Milo Yiannopoulos’s event at DePaul University had to be cut short Tuesday night after protesters stormed the stage, blew whistles, grabbed the microphone out of the interviewer’s hand, and threatened to punch Yiannopoulos in the face.” 

 There is also the infamous case of the shrieking girl bellowing at a Yale University professor because he did not protect her from Halloween costumes. (That is not a joke). The students sought an apology ‘for their hurt’ and told the professor that his job was ‘to create a space of comfort and home’ as opposed to a space of intellectual challenge, curiosity and investigation. This shrieking girl bellows that university was “not about creating an intellectual space but creating a home here,” and that he should step down from his position as master...  Now, I don’t know if these individual students endured serious daycare time, but I do know that in April 2001, in the US the National Institute of Child Health and Development released findings showing a link between long hours of non-maternal care for young children and aggressive behaviour...

Toddlers who do long hours in nursery care are not only more aggressive, but also insecure. If you have doting, devoted mummy replaced by 21-year-old harassed daycare worker, you just do not get the same attention. You have to compete with all the other little hitters for attention... So if they did not have that safe space of mother’s love on hand when little, is it really so surprising the students grow up to be ‘adults’ desperately seeking it now?"
