Watch the film. There is a child at home and several children in a baby home. What physical differences can you see between the children? Pay attention to their hair, skin, eyes, body movements, vocalisation etc…..

This 2nd clip is about a baby girl called Faya. She lived at home for the first few months of her life before going to the baby home.

It is a hard watch but shows how relational withdrawal happens and what it looks like.
