|| Child Care and the Growth of Love
||“In 1951, under the auspices of the World Health Organization, Dr John Bowlby wrote a report on Maternal Care and Mental Health which collated expert world opinion on the subject and the issues arising from it – the prevention of juvenile and adult delinquency, the problem of the ‘unwanted child’, the training of women for motherhood, and the best ways of supplying the needs of children deprived of their natural mothers. This book is a summary of Dr Bowlby’s report, freed from many of its technicalities and prepared for the general reader.”
||Readers of this website are unlikely to “like” this book but it is a good idea to read it, as it was a standard text for many of today’s senior teachers and LEA personnel when they trained. The statistical sample was small and unrepresentative and yet this has been the foundation of much of the thinking that children’s problems are caused by family dysfunction rather than genuine neuro/biological difficulty.
