Imagine there were babies in an orphanage. And there was a college nearby, that wanted their female students to be able to practice the 'Domestic Arts' under scientific conditions.
Imagine then that these women lived in 'practice apartments', and got to 'check out' an infant from an orphanage, like a book from the library!, for a year and take turns raising it under very strict scientific guidelines.
Yeah, that would never happen here in the states, right?
This during a time when babies were forced to cry themselves to sleep. When holding a child was called 'coddling'. Experiments in extra love, or no love at all! what will happen when we do this, or that? And because these children were orphans, they had no voice.
