The ideal environment for raising children turns out to be not that of the nuclear family but on in which there are at least three secure relationships (gender nonspecific), meaning three relationships that convey the clear message: ‘You will be cared for no matter what.’

~Carol Gilligan, Joining the Resistance, p. 53

Not that secure relationships are limited to parents, but my first thought reading this passage was, “So poly families are what we should all be aiming for!”
