The development of brain areas responsible for interaction, empathy, understanding, love, and responsiveness to others occurs as a result of secure attachment. A primary relationship during infancy directly influences these qualities.
In a blog post I read recently, attachment parenting was described as a trend. My sincere hope is this will not become a common opinion. Attachment is a scientifically proven human need which directly impacts brain connections. We have come a long way in beginning to make the critical importance of a secure attachment better understood, but still have a long way to go before this is common practice for all children. Hopefully you will help in continuing to make this essential information well known.
Throughout the week I will post additional information that can assist in creating greater awareness of the positive and long lasting impact that is made through attachment.
