Baby boys left in nannies' care more prone to womanising later in life?

Baby boys left in nannies' care more prone to womanising later in life?



Could mothers who leave the care of their baby boys to caregivers such as nannies be creating future adulterers?

That's what one British doctor claims in a book that has caused quite a stir in Britain.

In an article published in Time, Dr. Dennis Friedman argues that men stray because their mothers left them to nannies when they were boys. According to him, having two women care for a baby boy may cause his little brain to internalize the idea that there are multiple females to meet his needs. "It introduces him to the concept of the other woman," he said in London's Daily Telegraph.

Girls who are left in the care of nannies are affected too, as not having her mother around creates a "vacuum of need" in the baby girl.

But it is his theory concerning baby boys that have been highlighted, as it implies that a man is more tempted to womanise when he is used to having two women in his life as a child - one for family, and one for catering his needs.

Dr Freidman suggests that mothers should not work, but stay at home to care for their children, or at least wait until they are one year old before returning to the workforce.

However, his theory does not offer statistics, nor does his proposal seem practical, as naysayers point out. There are a lot of mothers who cannot afford to stop work, or if they do, they will have to stop feeding their children.

Dr Jean Mercer, professor emerita of Psychology at Richard Stockton College in New Jersey, says that it does not make developmental sense. Babies do not just form attachments to their mothers - they also become attached to fathers, grandparents, siblings and just about anyone who interacts with them often and cares for them.

Re: Baby boys left in nannies' care more prone to womanising later in life?

LOL. Makes sense but yet it does not at the same time. I would imagine babies to be more aware of people around them (and differentiating between men and women well enough) after like 10 months or so and if nannies take care of them up till 1 year old I dont think they'd remember that it was two ladies taking care of them when they're older.. O.O So the doctor could've suggested moms being SAHMs from the time their son is 1-2 years old up till womanizing age hehe.

Ok I'm not making sense either and do correct me if I'm wrong >_>
