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!
