Mr James pointed to a study in America which tracked youngsters for 15 years. It showed a correlation between the hours placed with nursery to increased aggression and bad behaviour, reported by both parents and nursery workers.
‘Studies show there is a direct link between how many hours you spend in daycare up to the age of four and a half and how aggressive you are.’
‘No one can deny that daycare increases aggressiveness of toddlers. A toddler raised at home with a single carer is six times less likely to be aggressive than one enduring more than 45 hours a week daycare and the more daycare a child has, the greater the aggression. This aggression is sustained and predicts greater problems in primary schools.’

While I understand that many mothers are forced to go out and work by economic circumstances, there should be no surprise in this finding that children are more aggressive and anxious when raised by a nursery worker, rather than their mother.
Don't children deserve the best start in life?
But the same study showed that this was a small effect compared with the quality of parenting.
