In absorbing and accessible prose, Robin Karr-Morse and Meredith S. Wiley present case histories of "children who kill," along with the latest in brain development research. Ghosts from the Nursery compellingly demonstrates the poisonous effect that neglect, abuse, trauma, injury, and toxicity have in the first thirty-three months of life - and makes a convincing case for a revolution in our beliefs about the care of babies.
One in twenty children born today will spend some part of his or her adult life in jail. During the last thirty years, violent crimes committed by youth have risen by 371 percent. Cutting to the heart of this alarming trend, Ghosts from the Nursery gives startling new evidence that violent behavior is fundamentally linked to abuse and neglect in the first two years of life.
