«Maternal sensitivity is the best documented single predictor of child development, but maternal sensitivity does not occur in a vacuum. In a landmark publication, Belsky reminds us that parenting behaviors are determined by parental psychological processes, resources available to the mother, context and stress associated with support provided, and the characteristics of the child. Thus, maternal sensitivity can only be understood within the wider context of the world in which each mother-child dyad lives. That said, how can maternal sensitivity be supported and the maternal-child relationship improved in those cases in which there is the potential or actuality of unhealthy outcomes? The authors of each chapter of this book have provided much guidance in this area.» (p. 295)
