“Mother love in infancy and childhood is as important for mental health as are vitamins and proteins for physical health.” – John Bowlby. Attachment is a crucial piece in every child’s life, without proper attachments children may struggle with behavioral issues, forming relationships and fitting-in in society. In a world where mothers are needing to leave their infants at an early age it is important for child care providers to know about the importance of attachment and how we can foster and facilitate those attachments at every stage of childhood. This 2 hour course will discuss the history behind the attachment theory, the reasons why it is important in child care, and how we as providers can help parents and children form strong lasting attachments.
