    Anyone know the 6 mark answer??

    The following letter appeared in letters page of parenting magazine.
    Is it too late for Jack?
    I am about to adopt Jack, who is nearly 12 years old. He lived with his own mother until he was 9 months old, but has been seen in children's homes or with various foster parents since then. I sometimes wonder whether Jack will ever be able to form a really strong attachment to me. I am also worried about Jack's behaviour at school. His teacher says he is not very bright and his last school report said he was disruptive and difficult.
    Outline Bowlby's theory of maternal deprivation. Refer to the case of Jack in your answer.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
