This is true because infants learn based on what they see in the world round them. Therefore, institutionalizing them separates them from the people they learn from. With no one to model their behavior after, the child becomes feral and doesn't develop so when they are finally removed from the institution they are physically not capable of developing the necessary skills due to the fact that their brain has developed to much but hasn't received the nurture it requires in order to complete basic social skills.
The answer for this question is: True
Sociologists found that the effects of institutionalization on infants, i.e. lack of a caring environment, will result in slower development of their mental, physical, and emotional skills. The answer is: True
Sociologists found that although institutions vary, they share common characteristics such as interactions that lack warmth and sensitiveness, and as a result resident children develop poorly both physically and mentally, and they develop poor social-emotional skills. However, if there have been no long-term consequences of institutionalization, those who are adopted at an early age, may develop differently.
Explanation: The lack of a caring environment can affect the mental development of children because studies have shown that children depend on their parents as a condition for a caring environment. Parental care of children is important in terms of regulating their physiological needs and behaviour, that is, in learning certain patterns that are important for mental development. With careful care, children are relieved of stress, which, if not eliminated, can later cause problems. Such children exhibit the developed skills needed for school, i.e learning, writing, reading, socialising, while neglecting can produce various mental, health, developmental problems.
