Attachment Styles in Childhood: 6 Tips to Raise Secure and Happy Children

Child psychiatrist John Bowlby is considered to be the founder of attachment theory.What interested Bowlby was how children relate to others (especially their caregivers) and how this develops in their mind and behavior (Bretherton, 1998).Bowlby noticed children’s distress when separated from their parents, especially in a stranger’s presence or an unfamiliar place. This led to Bowlby (1958) developing what is now referred to as childhood attachment theory.The theory is based around Bowlby’s ideas of how children make sense of their distress, behavior, loss, and separation from their caregiver.
