Fun fact for today:
A new study explores a possible connection between insecure infants and relationship problems in young adults. Does the kind of baby you were affect what kind of lover you'll be? [npr]
I still can't figure out how learning that loner twelve-month-old children are more likely to grow up to have bad relationships is supposed to make anyone feel.


Just exactly what is an insecure infant? All of the ones I've er, handled seems insecure- because they can't do anything.

I think that's on par with saying if you're an only child, you're a freak.
here's how they defined it:

1. mother leaves infant alone in a room
2. infant cries
3. mother returns

if the child is conforted (stops crying) soon after mom comes back, it's "secure". if he or she keeps crying for a long time, then the child is "insecure".
