With training in child dev. & psych, I give you:
Treatment for Separation Anxiety involves making the child feel safe, and preparing well for separations. How well is that going to happen on a military base? For children
These questions raise others about the nature of these warehouses and the staffing therein.
Will they have toys and manipulatives and scissors and arts & crafts for finite motor skills, and climbing equipment and sandboxes and soccer balls and swing sets for gross motor skills?
Some will claim it'd be good if the children did NOT form any attachment to whoever is paid to take care of them, since it's going to be temporary, and won't that child be sad when
Those people are dumb.
Children who are warehoused, who are not shown kindness, who are not hugged and sung to, and who do not have the same, recognizable person caring for them, especially traumatized children, can develop RAD:
"Reactive attachment disorder is a rare but serious condition in which an infant or young child doesn't establish healthy attachments with parents or caregivers."
"Reactive attachment disorder may develop if the child's basic needs for comfort, affection and nurturing aren't met and loving, caring, stable attachments with others are not established."
"[some] children and teenagers with reactive attachment disorder may display callous, unemotional traits that can include behavior problems and cruelty toward people or animals."
RAD children may have little empathy. They can be violent. They find it
And the risk factors for developing RAD? One of them is placement in warehouse-like orphanages, such as they have had in China, Russia, Romania.
All in all, this "warehouse the kids on military bases" scheme sounds really really fraught, and I'm very much against it.
We do NOT know if ANY of the missing children were trafficked at all.
