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

Be sure your discussion post also includes a reference to the textbook to support your ideas.
