In an even more dysfunctional twist, Precious’s mother confesses to their social worker that she has hated Precious since the first time that her boyfriend expressed a sexual interest in their daughter, rather than her. Despite all the ways that Precious was victimized, she is hesitant to come clean. She is fearful of telling her teacher or social worker the truth about her home life or her children. This can be one of the most difficult phenomenon of child psychology to understand. Having been a victim of maltreatment for as long as she would be able to remember, Precious would have a diminished view of what she should have been able to expect from her parents.

Her early life was secure and infused with strict Christian morals. Marilyn felt unwanted because her biological mother left her, and her foster mother rejected her. Her foster mother only allowed Marilyn to call her “Aunt Ida,” as she was never her mother (Spoto, 1993, p. 20).

All the various experiments were most likely overwhelming and stressful for Genie, and could have been the major reason why she was never able to learn how to make sentences. I believe Genie was never really loved since she was always transferred to different foster homes. I also believe that if Genie stayed in one foster home, she could have been less overwhelmed and more capable of learning how to speak. Genie’s mother also viewed the experimentations on Genie as unethical and eventually sued children’s hospital for doing scientific research rather than providing therapy to rehabilitate her. Genie’s mother won the case, and further experimentations on Genie were no longer allowed.
