Shared Care of Young Children: Alternative Models to Monotropism.
Smith, Peter K.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v26 n4 p371-89 Oct 1980
Reviews evidence for assertions related to the monotropism hypothesis and examines causal factors that might constrain the number of satisfactory caretaker relationships provided for young children. Two models of constraint derived from the earlier work of Bowlby and others are rejected; two models based on more recent theory are considered worth researching. (Author/RH)
