The Extended Family

an article in Utne Reader by Katherine Boo

(our site's book review)

Katherine Boo reports that infants raised with both mother and grandparents develop far better emotionally and intellectually. , also by Boo, makes the case for such social resources. (In many MCs, it would be expected that just such social resources would be available as nurturers for kids, but because of the closeness, empathy and trust in MC relationships, the actual blood relationship to nurtured kids would be virtually irrelevant. See Why Register for an MC?.)

William Sears, M.D., parenting consultant for "Parenting" magazine and website, says that studies have shown that children who develop deep attachments to caregivers—such as nannies (or any other reliable, loving caregiver)—are more likely to develop healthy relationships as adults. This is from The Attachment of Children to Nannies, by Ashley Mackenzie. Obviously, if the relationship is to the mother, that is just as good (and during the bonding period in the first 6 months, it is often even better if it is). The main thing to the children is the quality of the relationship, its reliability, its depth, its benevolence.
