I think it would definitely make a difference!! I've heard about studies on younger children (very young...under 3 years old) where it has been shown that while they are unhappy anytime the mother is away (working, etc.) they can tell (and are less unhappy) if it is because the mother is forced by circumstances to be away. If she CHOOSES to go away, the child can sense it somehow, and deep down, instinctively feels a sense of neglect or unwantedness, even if they don't recognize it on the surface.
