The following report will evolve around a theoretical analysis. Our focus will be the two theories from John Bowlby and Pär Nygren. The purpose of this report is to examine the meaning of child neglect based on the academics of Nygrens critical psychology, activity theory and Bowlbys theory within the psychoanalysis and ethology. Furthermore the report will examine the good parenthood, and how people respond to neglect and what consequences it may have. The reports empirical data rests on two interviews by Lotus Maria Chili Turell, daughter of Chili Turéll and famous artist Dan Turéll, from respectively Kristeligt Dagblad and Alt For Damerne. The two interviews combined with the theories has given an insigt into Lotus’ life, neglection and non attentive parents. The outcome of the non attentive parents lead to consequences later in Lotus’ life, in her own motherhood and attachment behavior. This information has provided the essential knowledge about the neglection of Lotus, and how child neglect can be comprehended different ways. Bowlby believes that the mother-child affiliation determines the development of the child. On the other hand Nygren believes that it is our carer that determines the way we develop our capabilities.
