General Information


sensory affectional deprivation syndrome

Sensory affectional deprivation syndrome illustrates the importance of nurturing a newborn from birth onto adulthood.  That is, cuddling, rocking, carrying, hugging and all these acts of affection are not a “want” but a “need” for healthy growth in a child.

Research has shown that depriving an animal from maternal care makes that animal grow up with emotional and social problems.  This research may be translated to a human child and how depriving a child from affection can make that child have all kinds of problems such as violence.

This is evidence of how sensory affection is extremely important in rearing a child.
