is something that happens between a child and his parents or the people
who take care of him. Parents and children who are attached to each other
want to be together. They feel something is missing when they are apart.
Attachment is an emotional connection that usually begins when children
are babies. A strong attachment usually lasts throughout a person’s
lifetime. When a child is attached to someone, he will depend on this
person to take care of him when he is scared, hungry, tired, injured,
or just in the mood for love.
