Failure to thrive (as it was coined by Holt in 1897) has gone through various stages of knowledge-development as well, and these stages have been brieﬂy summarised above. HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE OF FAILURE TO THRIVE 27 It was once argued that hospitalised and institutionalised children failed to thrive because they did not receive maternal nurturing and attention as a result of separation from their mothers. However, when children who failed to thrive began to be studied in their own homes, they showed the same outcomes, and it was assumed that their condition had developed because of neglect or abuse.
These observations, however, are somewhat questionable because of the absence of contrast or control groups. As we know, clinic-attending patients make for a notoriously biased sample. A further weakness of much of the work is the absence of evidence on the reliability or validity of the procedures used for data collection. Most of the studies then (as well as now) are based on retrospective data and therefore have to be interpreted with caution. Early studies have been based on observations of children and parents mainly in hospitals or clinics, so observations of interactions and quality of care at home, including feeding style and nutritional intake, were not taken into consideration.

Lucius Annæus Seneca INTRODUCTION Looking into the history of various civilisations, we can see that infanticide has been accepted by many cultures and has been practised in cases where children were deformed, handicapped, or who failed to thrive. Both Aristotle and Plato approved of it as an appropriate solution to various problems. It was sometimes employed for economic reasons (as in Polynesia, where the relative smallness of the islands ensured the practice was imposed on all families without distinction).
