1. CHILD DEVELOPMENT: NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES IN CHILDHOOD MAY ALTER ADULTHEALTH. BARBARA NICHOLSON, M.Ed., co-founder, ATTACHMENT PARENTINGINTERNATIONAL, a nonprofit organization that helps create local support groupsand publishes educational and research materials for parents andprofessionals, can comment on how negative experiences in childhood may alternot only mental health, but also physical health, into middle age and beyond:"The security of the parent-child relationship is foundational to all futureadult relationships. Security of attachment simply means that sensitive,loving responsiveness creates a sense of trust between the baby and theparent, and when this relationship is disrupted, it has a lifelong impact.When parents leave their children to cry in isolation for long periods (thesleep training method, for example), the infant experiences this isolation asneglect. Their brain is wired to expect their needs to be met, to be comfortedand fed when they cry or are hungry."
