Houseparents: A Study of Their Training in Fifty-Five Child Caring Institutions in New York State 1961
Today the child referred for institutional placement is one who is termed a "problem," troubled, emotionally disturbed or unhappy child. These children usually come from deteriorated family situations where social, economic and physical pressures on parents have interfered with the acceptance of their children, making them insecure, bitter and untrusting of adults. This deprivation experienced by the children in such families have affected their whole lives, and they find it hard to accept normal familial and social relationships.
