Are some women just destined to be bad mothers?
It appears so, a new study indicates.
Researchers from Virginia's University of Richmond say that some women are just biologically programmed with a "bad mothering" brain switch.

After the baby is born, these brain cells are then "switched on," resulting in good or bad parenting skills.
