single parenthood a contributing factor to child abuse
The Wisconsin Legislature created the board as a public-private partnership in 1983. The 20-member board administers the Children's Trust Fund. The Governor appoints ten public members for three-year terms. The other ten members serve unspecified terms and represent the Governor, several state departments and the Legislature. A policymaking board, it is attached to the Department of Children and Family Services solely for administrative purposes.
The board's mission is to promote the development of a sustainable, comprehensive prevention infrastructure that reflects research and promising practices in child abuse and neglect prevention. Through strategic partnerships and investments, the board supports Wisconsin communities in the provision of services to prevent child abuse and neglect.
The Wisconsin Children's Trust Fund believes that all Wisconsin children grow up in healthy and nurturing environments – free from violence with an equal opportunity to reach their full potential.
We promote the development of a sustainable, comprehensive prevention infrastructure that reflects research and promising practices in child abuse and neglect prevention. Through strategic partnerships and investments, the Children’s Trust Fund supports Wisconsin communities in the provision of services to prevent child abuse and neglect.
This could have been an informative and useful thread, but somewhere along the way it got derailed. The Senator's action was directed to the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board. Not to the police, not to the courts. There is no punishment for single parenting. No children would be taken away. Nothing bad would happen.

Everything you posted is backwards. The parents should teach the child the birds n bees, NOT a teacher that may be a pedophile. Women are the ones who do not care about contraceptives, if they did there WOULD BE LESS ABORTIONS-the woman carries the baby, it is HER responsibility to protect herself if she does not want a baby. TPTB do NOT want bastard children, they DO want to end people with no children supporting people with children who are unfit to do so. A woman that intentionally has a baby out of wedlock because she is "independent" and wants to prove to the world she can raise a child on her own-fine, do it, but without welfare and any other handout, want to be the mother AND the father, great, first time your kid funks up, you be the one that gets charged. The kid that killed students this week had a broken home, maybe the Senator is tired of it happening. Women go to the extreme when seeking independence. Guys do not care if you can walk and chew gum at the same time, GUYS WANT A MOTHER FOR THE BABY.

You don't even need to consult the DSM-IV-TR to know this. It was a simple wikipedia link
Like the Romanian orphans who were left in their cribs, and only fed and diapered by non-interactive "staff". And Ted Kazinski.
Your statement above is beyond exaggeration, it is plain false.
I've no idea where you picked up this nonsense, but as a professional with a code of ethics, I must refute it.
That's some scary stuff you're spewing there, friend.
Please review your sources and look into a few more before making pronouncements like this. Some might take you seriously.
PLEASE, by all means, share with us what your professional degree/training is in. You seem to imply that it relates to this topic so please enlighten us on that score.
C) coldness, harshness, distance, absence on the part of one or both parents
G) lack of convincing routine DEMONSTRATION of parental love sufficient for the child to FEEL loved.
no, if one parent is consistently available, affectionate, and warm, the child will be fine
This is true, and no "normal", healthy parent would withhold love like that.
As I said, it has to do with a LACK of affection, stimulation and love.
You are confusing abuse with complete neglect. They are two very different things. Even an "abused" child wants the love and approval of their parent(s). A child/adult with RAD is totally indifferent to the affection of others.
for 30+ years.
A child who receives unconditional love, affection, stimulation and recognition from their caregiver is not at risk for RAD.
Moreover, every child has his/her own capacity of resilience. A child who is hypersensitive might be hurt by a parent's "absence" (whether physical or emotional), and a child who is not hypersensitive will do just fine.
