The authors attempt to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of residential (institutional) life at different phases and in different aspects of the infant’s development. They come to the conclusion that there are realms in the infant’s life where the residential nursery can be helpful by creating excellent conditions for certain types of development; but that there are others where residential homes have to recognize their limitations if they want to face and fight more effectively the serious consequences of such limitations” (Dust Jacket) Subjects: Child Care.
