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.


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".
