Some will already have suffered the pain of parting from a child whom they have grown to love. They may have found that when attachments develop, children become more demanding and possessive. Juliet Hopkins, who ran a group for nursery workers designed to help them develop more intimate relationships with children, identified two particular sources of conflict: the ideal of equality and the goal of fostering independence (Hopkins, 1988). The workers believed that children should be treated equally and be given equal attention, but in practice this seemed to mean avoiding any significant involvement with individual children for fear that the others might feel ignored or become jealous.

Others may have little choice, with jobs that they will lose if they don’t turn up for work.
