|Parenting A Secure and Confident Child Using the Science of Attachment Theory Studies in the 1950s revealed that young children hospitalized without their parents respond first by crying for them, then by showing signs of despair, and finally by emotionally detaching from the parents and acting indifferent to their absence. This detachment is hard to repair and highly detrimental to a child's development--most children who feel they cannot rely on their parents grow up to become more emotionally insecure and less self-assured than their peers. Using the science that underlies more extreme approaches to "attachment parenting," The Attachment Connection helps parents sort out the facts from the fiction about parent-child attachment and shows how paying attention to the cognitive needs of a growing child can help him or her grow up healthy, secure, and confident. |
