~20.18: "... it's not that if they were abused as a child that they will be an abuser."  So are there likely to be psychologically self-correcting upper brain mechanisms at work post infancy but still within the formative years that can compensate for or partially negate the negative effects of insecure attachment so that such individuals don't themselves become child abusers as adults, or is more a case that for most of us deep-rooted parental instincts for raising children (i.e. in the "hard wired" lower areas of the brain) supersede these negative effects of insecure attachment?
