Attachment behaviors in young children experiencing two primary caregivers Vinay, Marie-Emmanuelle
Attachment behaviors in young children experiencing two primary caregivers were studied in group homes organized for single mothers. The nine subjects ranged in age from five to 27 months. They were observed separately with their mothers and with the adult in charge of their group home during the day. Only small qualitative differences in the adult-child interaction were observed. Little fear of strangers and separation anxiety were seen. The theoretical implications of results for the concept of attachment were discussed.
