Parenthood is j us t . develop- lental stage "between childhood and old age," declared Dr. Jane Loevinger of Washington University, St. Louis, In an address to the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Coming to (he defense of some- limes over-criticized mothers, Dr Loevinger cited five statements buttressing her argument that there s too much emphasis on a mother-blaming complex: 1. "Parenthood has never been recognized officially as • branch of : psychology, nor «s » normal developmental stage." 2. "Child psychology Is one of the most Intensively cultivated branches of psychology; the 'psychology of parent.?' Is virtually nonexistent." She quoted one psychoanalyst who says that "babies control and bring up theli- families as much Ilioy are controlled say , „.„ j ni & \iVHlJ by them; In fact, we may aa v that the family bring, U p a baby l>y being brought up by him 3.

"Llteratufe written by psychologists for parents emphasizes '(he rights of Infants,' the obligation of mothers to satisfy their children's needs," but without telling the difference between the child's needs and rights.
