Independent Online Edition > Health Medical : app4: "Toddlers who are looked after by their mothers do significantly better in developmental tests than those cared for by nurseries, childminders or relatives, according to a study to be published today.

The findings will show that those given nursery care fared worst. They exhibited higher levels of aggression and were inclined to become more compliant, withdrawn or sad.
Those looked after by grandparents and other relatives fared a little better.
Youngsters looked after by childminders and nannies came second in terms of their development to those who stayed at home with mother.

Good to see science finally catching up to what everyone already knew.
