The Sutton Trust Publishes Important Study on Childhood Neglect

Baby Bonds: Parenting, Attachment and a Secure Base for Children, a report released by The Sutton Trust, discusses the importance of caregivers bonding with their children. The longitudinal study of 14,000 US children found that about 40 percent lacked secure attachments. Their analysis provides important insights into how these children impacted by neglect they experienced. The researchers also offer a number of recommendations for caregivers, behavioral health professionals and policy makers to support children in developing strong attachments.
