The video below shows the “Still Face” experiment, in which a mother denies her baby attention for a short period of time. After a few minutes playing with her baby, the mom ceases all facial engagement. This has a powerful effect on the baby. Decades ago, it was thought that babies don’t have the ability to pick on social cues. This experiment demonstrates how babies are extremely reactive to social situations. This video does a great job proving how child neglect can shape every aspect of a child’s life. Children who do not receive enough attention early on tend to develop personality disorders as a way to cope with the lack of attention.
