What Is Secure Attachment?

All Ages

Jan 9, 2021

Attachment Parenting and Secure Attachment are two VERY different terms. However, they can be easily confused- especially in the sleep world. I’ve asked Drs. Jenna Elgin and Shanna Alvarez to join me on the podcast to bring clarity to these terms.

SECURE ATTACHEMNT:

  • Being able to confidently observe your environment and be able to return and check-in with the parent base
  • Learning independence and being confident without being physically connected to a parent

ATTACHMENT PARENTING:

  • Philosophy coined by Dr. William Sears in the 1980s
  • Parents build a strong attachment through a certain list of behaviors

PODCAST EDITS:

  • The strange situation assessment is 9-18 mo (it was said 6-12) and the city was Baltimore (not Chicago)
