To give a little happiness then snatch it away. ....As i see her, she was like a loving dog, she knew nothing of human behavior, she was truly innocent and could not do bad as we can, she was truly an animal mind, and was probably confused with human Fully kept under control, she was made to sit alone every day and night. What a travesty! Genie is thrown around from place to place as a scientific guinea pig for opportunists. Did they not explain her traumatized experiences? I would have taken her and put her on the farm with me and our family. There are men who should never be allowed to procreate or even to live! It would have to take an extremely caring, patient, stay at home parent to take care of Genie, and some people weren't up to the challenge. @ Kathy U, this is not feminist mess though? Many people are frightened of the unknown, and of something (or someone in this case) who could disrupt their way of living. Lastly, for all of you comparing her to “unwanted puppies “ or”scientific guinea pig” I don’t believe that these were the best terms to use as she was also a human being and not some animal as some of u most likely non intendedly regarded to her. They had to know she was not going to be an easy child to have in a home; she required more than a "normal" child would in development process and learning. Another sad example how our Society works everything about money and headlines but by the end that beautiful little girl was passed around like a ball,and ended up being abandoned by everybody.her mother should be in prison for the rest of her life she is not a Mother. It's sad to see her horrid Father's views on society be echoed by the professionals that surrounded her, unintentionally and through their actions but still distressing to see the lack of irony in it all. The authorities discover her situation. If this were you, would you lose trust in everyone around you? All those "caring rescuers" just used that poor kid for all they could pump out of her until the money dried up (due to their incompetence). The girl who gave an impression of an infant would be well known as "Genie." What did happen is about the worst outcome. You must be licensed to cut hair. The story begins in Los Angeles on November 4, 1970, when authorities have taken under protection a thirteen-year-old girl that was kept in such solitude imposed by her parents that she never even learned to talk. Moreover, it's wrong to call her the 'Wild Child'. You definitely would! I have always maintained that two adults who are a couple should not be able to procreate unless they have gone through an assessment program and are in a situation where they are able to rear a child. What Genie experienced was a break of trust that led to her developmental regression. We need at least one person in this world to care about us above all else, and to stick by us through everything. All she needed was someone to give her that extra time and care, to understand and work with her.. she did not deserve to be thrown around like a unwanted puppy. That I think is the hardest thing to wrap my head around. She had an emotional bond with her researchers/therapists/foster parents, and that bond was broken when the grant was discontinued and she was forced to return to the scene of her abuse and then forced into new scenes of abuse. - I give credit to Marc as a truly agree with his statement and beliefs on this tragic story. yes your nick sure shows you are qualified to talk about "civillized" society. I'm not stating a crazy behavior, but she as animal minded, could see things done were to her senseless. Still brings tears to my eyes even now. She needed a mother and a family. Susan (Genie) was not a wild child, she was an extremely abused child. Mom cant manage the girl and sends her back to caregivers, not unlike returning a pair of ill-fitting shoes. They say knowledge is power--and it is. But "experiment" or "study" are not the words I would use anywhere near the nurturing and rehabilitation of a traumatized child. Loving what God made, feeding his animals for instance. She had almost nothing to look at and no one to talk to for more than a decade. She was profoundly disturbed and ill-equipped to function as a human, much less in a civilized society. It's a very sad story. NOVA follows the contentious attempts to unbolt the secret of the wild child who has reached near maturity in an agonizing seclusion with almost no human contact. Then, she needed therapy, whose priority would be her emotional health. He killer himself. truly sad how such a cute little girl-woman could never enjoy life as she truly deserved, how true and deep she could be, but, never found an equal in this shallow world, that could not adapt to such a simple person, she really deserved better. She showed joy, expression, learned how to verbalize, even showed she had a sense of humor. The video evidence of her regression after broken trust and a return to abuse is also clear. @Kathy U, quit being a bitch karen she didnt say all men, Ilove that story because it tell you more about how to care for you babies and even though it was sad but the story also help you to learn more about brain functioning. The mom wins an undisclosed settlement? Literally, "As described in Curtiss’s book, Genie: A Psycholinguistic Study of a Modern-Day “Wild Child” (Academic Press), Genie is living proof of human resilience. she was cared for, but she was not loved and she was not nurtured. Stop with the feminist’s childish. The said they wanted to send her to a good home. in which she had been so terribly abused. Who really dropped the ball here was the NIMH. I was struck most by the people who had her for 6 years (if I remember correctly.) I don't understand how they wanted Genie to be in a "good home", yet she would come back to the child care hospital traumatized AGAIN by being punished. I agree with the last guy that the more interesting study is of the researcher's behavior rather than of that tragic child. Even the wearing of clothes may have. God will take care of us all though! So you can't really pin the blame on the scientists who took her in. It's 1612 and a woman is in a courtroom. Her face, her hands -- so gentle but powerfully expressive. While this was a long time ago, it is seemingly stated that her mother got off scot free of any charges due to the fact that she could argue that the father was abusive towards herself. Why get involved in the first place. She was loved and nurtured and cared for by many people. I really want to know some of your pros and cons and ideas in general thoughts that led you to this...this..I truly don’t even have words. I'm not sure why anyone trusted her biological mother, especially in the case of a lawsuit. The video evidence of her progress is clear. What a crock. She blossomed emotionally in their care, even as a research subject. Then the mother has the temerity to sue the caregivers for their lack of care for the child? Brought up in confinement, "Genie" was primitive, brutish, and hardly capable of walking or talking. 1) A loving family, 2) therapy, 3) education. I'm a psychologist, just watched this although I'd learned about the story long again. This is a mistake that has led to people being more aware of the places they are putting their children into. People weren't as aware of this as they are now, all the doctors and scientists waned to do was give her a good place to live(their intentions were good) and they expected that out of the foster system. Combined, there are more than 200k people following us through these channels: You should sign up for our newsletter. And you would regress to defensive behaviors, just as Genie did. It is surprising that she survived at all. The bureaucrats in this show were the worst of the bunch. I studied this case as part of my Psychology course. According to Curtiss’s book, when an earlier baby girl was born, he put the child in the garage because he couldn’t stand her crying: the baby died of pneumonia at two-and-a half months. The parents have been accused of child abuse. People who had no idea what was going on made erroneous assumptions and destroyed her stability, and thus her progress. She was transported to Children's Hospital in Los Angeles where she instantly gained the affection of doctors and scientists. With a case so unique, the medical community had no clear plan worked out for such and event. That’s the end. This girl should have been living in a STABLE WELL SUPERVISED group home setting from the start AND at the same time be getting speech therapy etc.
