The 10-minute label

Apparently it only takes 10 minutes to pick out tomorrow's 'menaces to society':

New mothers will be given a 10-minute test developed by psychologists to help identify whether their babies risk developing antisocial behavioural problems later in life.

Designed to allow health workers to identify women failing to bond with their children and needing help, the questionnaire is aimed at mothers with babies under six months of age.

It has been developed by researchers at Heriot-Watt University’s family and personal relationships laboratory and was funded by the Scottish Executive’s Centre for Integrated Healthcare Research as part of its plans to tackle antisocial behaviour.
