How to Build Attachment
- Secure attachment: this type of attachment develops when infants are cared for by caregivers who meet their needs consistently and lovingly. Children who develop a secure attachment to adults in their life are able to develop positive social skills.
- Insecure attachment: this type of attachment develops when the caregiver is unresponsive, inconsistent, or threatening. Children who are unable to form a secure attachment to adults can lack self control, and may also struggle with developing positive relationships with others.
The form of attachment is not based just on the child, but on the caregiver as well. It is important that the adults in the child's life provide them with a nurturing and positive relationship. We encourage all caregivers to form secure attachments with the children in their care.
