Fully agree -- I'd be very surprised if the author were a parent herself. Her scientific references tie "neglect" to phycho-social impact later in life, but the second link, equating "crying it out" to "neglect" is weak. "Crying it out" does not constitute neglect: it does not happen routinely (neglect is a pattern); crying it out occurs just a few times (1-5 times for 10-15 minutes until the baby learns to self-soothe(from experience, at our doctor's advice). Any experience parent will say that babies often cry when they have no needs -- when being held, having been fed, changed, etc. The author's adendum indicates she had a rocky childhood, and this article appears to draw from that experience rather than the neuro science she quotes.
