With attachment theory thereare strength and weaknesses. Attachment theory can be a good thing becausechildren should have attachment to their parents or someone they love. Childrenshould also have an attachment because they need to feel secure and safe whenthey are with someone they know. With attachment theory children will have asecure attachment with their caregivers. This mean that the child will only goto one person and that person they child will trust. Children will be able toexpress their feeling with whoever they trust and that means they can tell themagain. There are also weaknesses with attachment theory and they are the childwill get too attached to the parents and when the child needs to be left ontheir own they will become upset and may not bond with other adults becausethey have a strong attachment with the parents. With attachment theory somechildren may be fear going with strangers because they have never been leftwith anyone they unknown.
If children are left with different strangers thechild may not know what to do because they are used to being with theirparents, this means that the child will be upset until the parents come backand pick them up. This could affect a child’s development because they may notbe able to consecrate because they are upset and won’t socialise with anyoneelse. It could also affect the child emotional development because the childmay not know who to express their feeling too. In my opinion I thinkattachment theory is a good thing because children should have someone who theycan trust and feel secure around.
This is important because the child willlearn how to care for other people as they get older they way they did. On theother hand, I think attachment theory is not a good idea because the child willget attached to their parents and then they will be upset when the parentsleave them. Also, the child won’t be used to being left with strangers so whenthey are in the setting they wont know what to do and will be come upset andfrustrated. Some children may be attached to their parents, but they will alsostay with people they don’t know in the setting and they are fine with it.
