Democrats’ eligibility plans include banning Christians from babysitting
The Democrats’ current proposed welfare expansion to $ 3.5 trillion would effectively bar Christian worshipers from taking advantage of federal grants to separate infants and toddlers from their families.
The current text of the massive Democrats’ ‘build back better’ rights bill contains provisions that would force religious child care providers to disavow long-standing theology on sex in order to receive federal funds for child care as part of a massive new early years program.
Democrats have done everything possible to ensure and ban religious caregivers from receiving any of these funds, and unanimously rejected an amendment allowing all childcare providers to ‘be eligible for grants, including religious providers,’ said Representative Jackie. Walorski, R-Indiana, the foremost member of the House subcommittee on supporting workers and families.
Democrats’ legislation would create a new federally controlled child custody right available to the majority of families across the country. The law allows up to $ 20 billion in the first year of the program, $ 30 billion in the second, $ 40 billion in the third, and an unlimited amount thereafter. the estimated cost of this program over the next ten years is $ 400 billion.
“Making faith-based daycare and kindergarten providers recipients of federal financial assistance triggers federal compliance obligations and non-discrimination provisions,” note leaders of several religious organizations in opposition letter to Senate Democrats last week.
This potentially means force religious organizations to deny any theology that recognizes fundamental truths about human biology and reproduction. Given the state of federal “non-discrimination” law, this could include forcing religious organizations to allow men in women’s bathrooms, hiring transgender babysitters, and teaching young children that men can. turning into women and that the theologically condemned sexual acts are in fact morally good.
Only a third of American children under five are in child care, according to federal statistics. Sixty-three percent of American children aged five and under are looked after by their families and 11 percent by a babysitter or nanny. Most U.S. children ages 0 to 5 who have regular child care are only part-time away from their parents.
Among the minority of American families who enroll young children in full-time daycare, 53% currently choose a religious facility, according to a January 2021 report survey parents from the Bipartisan Policy Center. Family care was the main preference of parents for their children, with religious-based care being the second preferred option in the BPC survey.
The Democrats’ bill would also likely increase child care costs significantly by increasing licensing requirements for people the government pays to care for small children. Most child care workers have a low level of education, but states generally do not increase their licensing requirements as this would reduce the availability of government-controlled child care centers.
Many studies have find that the quality of language and interaction available to a child in infancy and early childhood is extremely important for that child’s intellectual and social development. Studies have also find that frequent one-on-one interaction between a small child and his parents advantages early language development even if the child’s parents are poorly educated. This effect disappears, however, if this poorly educated mother is employed to care for several small children at once instead of one to whom she can fully devote her attention and conversation time.
The resounding research find that living with married parents offers far greater positive benefits to children throughout their lives than participating in an early childhood program.
Large early childhood programs are notoriously low quality. The main existing program of this type, Head Start, has lack improve the educational and life prospects of participants in all quality research carried out on the program which has spent some $ 250 billion of taxpayers since its inception in 1965. In fact, federal research has find that children who participated in Head Start later learned less math and behaved less well than their peers who did not.
Research that shows any long-term benefit for children from participating in early childhood programs derives from such results from small-scale programs that employed teachers and support staff such as doctors who were much better educated than the typical daycare or preschool worker.
Also research shows mass programs that separate young children from their parents to diminish children’s intellectual capacities and increase their aggressiveness, risky behavior, and later the likelihood of committing crimes. They also tend to erode parenting skills. The more time a small child spends away from its mother, the worse these negative effects tend to be.
“The number of hours spent in daycare each week in the first four years of life was the main predictor of child care behavior problems.” writing sociologist Dr. Jenet Erickson in a review of several of these studies. “In fact, the size of the statistical effect of the relationship between child care hours and caregiver reports about behavioral problems at age four and a half was so strong as it was. comparable to the effect of poverty. It is important to note that these statistical effects did not diminish as the children got older.
High-quality studies have found that children who participated in the Tennessee state-run pre-K program had worse behavior and academic performance than children who did not. Children who attended Quebec’s universal child care program were 22 percent more likely be convicted of a crime as an adult in relation to children who did not participate in the program. Children separated from their parents in their younger years by the Quebec program also demonstrated greater emotional fragility that lasted into adulthood.
“The left is at war with religion and family-centered things. They think from cradle to grave, the government knows the best, ”Walorski said.
Walorski sponsored legislation it would increase tax-free savings accounts that families can use to pay for their own costs for child care, tutoring, enrichment activities such as music lessons and a summer camp, and Moreover.
