Why Absent Moms Matter
Rachel Darnall

Hmmm. I’m also a psychologist who’s worked with families for 25 years. I studied attachment with the gurus in the field. While I haven’t yet read the book (I will now!), it’s important to note a few points. 1. The attachment literature does NOT show that children of employed mothers show more insecure attachment than stay at home mothers. 2. As long as a child has a secure attachment to at least one consistent caregiver (mom, dad, grandparent, etc), they have good outcomes, in general. 3. Number of hours together doesn’t equal attachment; it’s the quality v quantity of interactions that matters (put down those IPhones!). Perhaps the authors clinical background is skewing her perspective??

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
