Q.

Mother

Is it better for a clhild to live with a parent that he is more emotionally attached to dispite the fact that the parent cannot look after the child properly? The child could just be emotionally attached even though that parent is not the best parent, the child does not see the difference.

You are correct. Children are usually unable to appreciate the difference and will usually choose to live with the parent they are most attached to at the time.
