The different outcomes might be attributed to the child's constitution, to the developmental stage at which poor mothering occurs, or to the "quantity" and "quality" of poor mothering (the mother might be depressed, a child abuser, rigid, etc., or she might have specific unconscious fantasies involving the child).
