Abstract

The problem addressed in this paper is variability in the quality of parental care. Situational determinants of this variability are considered within the framework of evolutionary theory. Parental behavior in people and animals is discussed from this perspective, with attention to parental attachment, child abuse and neglect, parental sex differences, adoption, and differential treatment of one's children.
