Many children throughout the world do not benefit from adequate parenting during their early years. Their foundation for healthy development is damaged so they have difficulty in forming loving, lasting, intimate relationships.
This condition, known as attachment disorder, can be triggered by abuse, neglect, abandonment, separation from birth parents, birth trauma, maternal depression, chronic illness, frequent moves and placements, and even divorce.
