H/T to Christopher Smith for the link to this CDC study: Adverse Family Experiences Among Children in Nonparental Care, 2011–2012.
I’m closing comments because my fabulous wonderful supertastic niece is visiting, and I want to hang with her, not moderate, and anyway there’s not much to discuss. It’s a study. Find out what it says. To paraphrase one of my favorite finance professors, such reports give us no answers, only questions. He said it of financial reports, but it’s true of statistical research as well. The answers lie elsewhere, in the individual lives of the many children suffering when they ought not.
