A recent US base study found that 4 in 10 children have not formed a secure attachment to a parent. This should be shocking, but sadly it isn’t. I wonder what the finding would be in the UK>

In a study of 14,000 U.S. children, 40 percent lack strong emotional bonds – what psychologists call “secure attachment” – with their parents that are crucial to success later in life, according to a new report. The researchers found that these children are more likely to face educational and behavioral problems.
