What is Attachment?

By December 27, 2010

Follow me on:

Due to the importance of early relationships in child development, attachment has become an important topic in the fields of child care, mental health treatment, parenting and education. Attachment is an emotional bond to another person. Psychologist John Bowlby was one of the earliest attachment theorists and described attachment as a "...lasting psychological connectedness between human beings." Learn more about the four different attachment styles that have been identified, the various characteristics of these attachment styles and how these early childhood attachments can possibly impact adult behavior later in life.

My youngest son is very attached to me right now, because I’m nursing. I think once I wean him then he may not be so attached, then again if he still is that’s OK too!

Unquestionably consider that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be at
the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you,
I definitely get annoyed at the same time as other folks think about issues that they plainly do not
realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top
as well as defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other
folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
Thanks
