The development of attachment is a process that children go through, which families and early care educators can have a positive impact on.  

Chapter 2 of the text and Nancy Balaban’s article, “Easing the Separation Process for Infants, Toddlers, and Families” explain the four types of attachment:  


1. Secure attachment

2. Insecure/avoidant attachment

3. Insecure/resistant/ambivalent attachment

4. Disoriented/disorganized attachment.


Select one of the four attachment styles above. 


Imagine that a child in your program is exhibiting attachment issues in this type of attachment. 


For this discussion, explain how you might communicate with parents to help foster a positive attachment in the early care and education program. 


Your response should address the following:


a. Characteristics of this type of attachment to inform parents


b. Shared communication plan to engage parents


c. Suggestions that you would offer to foster a positive attachment in the classroom
