An Investigation Into Factors Which Result in a Maladjusted Rejected Child in a Family of Two or More Children, Based on a Case Study at the St. Charles Child Guidance Clinic, Brooklyn
Background of the Study. It has been part of our culture to think that all parents love and want their children and give to them all the security, attention, and affection so necessary for the proper development of the child. It has been only in the past few decades approximately that this comforting idea has been punctured and it has become apparent to social workers, psychiatrists and others whose work or interest brings them into close association with children that parents do not, by virtue of performing a biological function, necessarily have the capacity to give their children this security, attention and affection. When this capacity is lacking, unless the child is fortunate enough to have his emotional needs met through some other source, something may happen to his development and his ability to make the proper adjustment in his relationships with other people.
