29. Some people fail to bond with their children
It's a symptom of a deeper mental illness (I forget which one). Unless a person had become aware of this before having a child (forgetting to feed a pet, for instance), they would never know.

I'm thinking that to forget a sleeping child, and then not have thought about the child again for a full work day, to me suggests a deeper problem.

Why punish when you can treat? It would seem to me that treatment is in order here.

I don't understand people whose first impulse is to punish, punish, punish. The US has the biggest prison population in the world. We need more?
