Children who are fussy and irritable may be less likely to establish a healthy and secure attachment to their mothers the more time the spend in day care, according to a study by researchers at the University of Iowa.

The study suggests that some caregivers are unable to give irritable children the attention they need, and those children should spend more time at home than they do under the care of others.
