“…More mothers of children with AD were found to be submissive (59%) as compared to mothers of controls (10%), and this difference was statistically significant (p<0.01). However, overall the mothers of children with AD seemed mentally well adjusted and thus probably did not have the negative maternal attitudes toward the child observed in previous studies (4, 9, 10).…”

“…Such a dysfunctional mother‐child relationship can lead to physical and emotional developmental arrest. In earlier studies, as well, stressed mothering (4), maternal rejection (9), hostility (10), neglect, and rough handling or a lack of holding and caressing (9), have also been demonstrated in mothers of children with AD. The personality of the mother may be greatly affected by the demands the child's eczema makes on her, due to the impact of the disease on the child's appearance, the additional restlessness and irritability, more disturbed nights, the time consuming nature of the skin care routine and her inability to cure or soothe the child, as these will add to the stresses and exhaustion of motherhood (8).…”

“…Initially, the cause of AD was attributed to 'poor mothering', decline [Miller and Baruch, 1948;Williams, 1951], hostility of the mother towards her child [Spitz, 1951;Rosenthal, 1954], or a lack of holding and caressing by the mother [Marmor et al, 1956], and nicotine abuse. Rechenberger [1979], Obermayer [1955] and Whitlock [1980] shared the opinion that AD is caused by an impulse-driven conflict due to a pathologic mother-child symbiosis.…”

“…The context of patients developing physical illness has also been intensively investigated, especially disorganizing events within the family (Kellner, 1963 ;Meyer and Haggarty, 1962;Mutter and Schleifer, 1966) and psycho-social stressors (Alexander and French, 1948;Wolff and Wolf, 1968;Rahe, 1968;Brown, 1972). Parental attitudes, usually rejection of the child by the mother, have been argued to be aetiologically important in eczema (Miller and Baruch, 1948 ;Williams, 1951;Marmor et al, 1956;Jacobs et al, 1966).…”
