Children need a family in order for them to develop physically and psychologically into healthy adults. Institutions such as hospitals and children’s homes provide shelter, food and clothing, but not a parent’s personal interest and enduring love. In fact, personnel in institutions often change. Institutionalised children, therefore, lack a stable caregiver and the necessary security, mental and emotional stimulation. They tend to become apathetic or rebellious and bond superficially. Obviously, it is better for a child to grow up in a family than in an institution.
