Does Daycare Breed Bullies?
The purpose of the study conducted by (NICHD), National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, was to investigate if child daycare breeds bullying. The early child care study tracked more than 1300 children enrolled in daycare at 10 different research sites across the United States and continued to track them until 15 years of age, this would be an observational prospective study.
Results in 1975 showed that less than 40% of mothers with children under the age of 6 worked outside of home full or part time, today more than 60% do. A result reported in 2001 that children who spend more time in daycare are more likely to be bullies when they are older. I found the sample was not a good representation of the population. The study did not specify if the 1300 children were randomly selected from different environments or similar environments. The study also did not reveal if the samples were mostly from violent neighborhoods or children from violent households, this creates bias when considering the results. I believe the examination of these criteria I consider important but, I find the results unreliable due to many variables.
