Four In 10 Infants Lack Strong Parental Attachments

http://www.science20.com/news_articles/four_in_10_infants_lack_strong_parental_attachments-132781

 

"In a study of 14,000 U.S. children, 40 percent lack strong emotional bonds — what psychologists call "secure attachment" — with their parents that are crucial to success later in life, according to a new report. The researchers found that these children are more likely to face educational and behavioral problems."

That is really intensely sad but also fairly unsurprising.

I might also questioned how well they've done their research to get such a high number of infants with strong parental attachments. I mean if you start off with a strong attachment to an infant I would think you'd find it hard to send your child to a public school when they got old enough.
