Motivation: The review period took over the stated period of time for both submissions (nearly 4 months). The editor requested changes (that we made) but did not tell us exactly what he wanted to have done and when we submitted it he then rejected because it wasn't the exact/analysis comparison he thought should have been completed. We could have revised those sections but he chose not to give us the opportunity. This was in light of very positive reviews on the first round of submission and that we were able to publish it in an equivalent (or better) journal after the process. I have papers in a number of high impact journals of this caliber (Child Development) and the process here was the worst I have experienced.
