The Stability of Individual Differences in Child - Mother Attachment across 3 Year Peroids
Ung Im Park,Myoung Hee Yoo
This article reports the developmental stability of individual differences in children`s attachment qualities with their mothers and the relations between the preschoolers` attachment security to mothers and maternal parenting behavior. 24 infants were observed with mothers in the Strange Situation to assess the infant-mother attachment patterns at 16 months of age. After 3 years, attachment security was assessed using Attachment Q-Set, and the modified IPBI (Iowa Parent Behavior Inventory: Mother Form) was administered to mothers to assess their parenting behavior. Analyses revealed significant differences in children`s attachment security scores by infancy attachment patterns. That is 11 of 12 children`s attachment to mothers qualities were stable across the 3 year periods. The attachment security scores related positively to the responsive maternal parenting behavior. Changes in child-mother attachment quality over time were related to maternal responsiveness. Collectively, these findings were consistent with predictions from attachment theory.
