Parental Absence Stifles Kids' Learning
Young children who experience separation from a parent are at increased risk for learning problems as they enter kindergarten, new research shows.

Children in the study who had been separated from a parent scored significantly worse than children with intact families in testing designed to measure key early learning issues.
