    I think it is funny and has a good approach. To know this, probably you just have to be a parent; then, you will appreciate it. Thank to God f for His word and for the help like the one that Dr. Leman offers :)

    Oh hell no am I letting my mom read this book.
    She borrowed it from a friend.
    She told me I couldnt go out today… no reason. I just couldnt. Do you know how fucking bad that made me feel? I felt like I was being dumbed down, for no reason too. Makes me feel like shit.
    Yeah, so I realized she read the first part of the book.. because of the bookmark. And now I hid the book from her. HA.
    Stupid book isn’t going to take my life away.

    I saw Kevin on Huntley Street – this guy really knows his stuff! Too many times, the ‘tail is wagging the dog’, and it’s good to hear of someone who doesn’t let kids rule the parents!

    I have four kids, so I picked up four copies. I suppose I have to read them all now. But I can’t wait to learn new parenting skills!

    You miss the point and seem to be trying to deliberately confuse facts – these experiments were ONLY conducted with the adult female monkey and baby monkey. Never the male adult monkey and baby monkey, neither was the baby monkey given a choice between adult male or adult female monkey to run to. The baby monkey will ALWAYS run to the adult female monkey for comfort and protection, do a bit more research! You’re completely wrong, monkeys are nothing like people…..find something else to do.

    They don’t, this is confusing psychological experiments involving monkeys with disfunctional parents. Completely different as children are not kept in cages and raised in isolation. I can see how the person thinks it’s the same, but he doesn’t display much intelligence or understanding! Good job he isn’t a parent as I would hate to think what the children ended up as.

    There is NO connection, but if you look at monkeys – it’s the male that looks after the baby and takes it for walks! It only gives it back when it needs feeding or when he has had enough of it.

    I really believe all my social, spiritual and emotional problems are a direct result of not having a mom. I think our little jungle friends are closer to us than we think.

    I feel sorry for the poor baby monkeys used in the experiment, tho I do know that it was from a time when the ideas of what is unethical were different. The experiments do all have a good point to prove tho.

    Just to add to your comment. Across almost ALL cultures children are brought up by more than just one person. Thank you for commenting, kip

    What is this notion that Parents are divided into “Mothers” and “Fathers”? In many animals lives (but not all), and in “traditional” human roles, (but by no means Historical roles, beyond that tradition) there is a division of labour that relies upon one parent to do the majority of the childcare. Yet, that has no bearing upon modern relationships between male parents, whether adoptive or biological, and their children or progeny. Every parent has a right & ability to be the primary parent.

    No. He based it on a whole range of theories and experiments… This is just one.  Many fit, however some dont, but as in psychology, there are reasons to why some dont fit

    Bowlby based his discredited theory of ‘maternal deprivation’ on these experiments. The aim of the video is to show the flaws in this method.
    Many thanks for the comment!

    I support fathers’ rights and I think they SHOULD be involved in raising children but I cannot see how do these particular experiments and researches prove that even toddlers need fathers?

    ur 6 thumbs up on a fathers rights monkey video, that really makes no sense? You must be very proud of that. Ur comments at the top bud, which means people are going to reply if its fucking stupid, which it is. You should probably delete your youtube account if you can’t handle people replying to your comments, regardless of when there from

    let’s see….he wasn’t satisfied with a fake mother, so they made actual monsters out of adult monkeys…”The other monkeys were brutal or lethal. One of their favorite tricks was to crush the infant’s skull with their teeth. But the really sickening behavior pattern was that of smashing the infant’s face to the floor, and then rubbing it back and forth.” You should try reading a book some time slick

    that little monster thing was so ridiculous looking…probably the stuff of baby monkey nightmares for years to come (assuming the monkey wasn’t immediately slaughtered after the cameras were turned off as seems to be an adopted practice nowadays)

    back when harlow was doing these experiments, the concept of motherly love was rare, and thought of as dangerous to the child’s developmental health…

    The “mother” provides some sort of comfort.

    Why does the monkey run to his mother?
