Cypress infant child care tips: Early childhood relationships impact future relationships

Posted on 06-20-2014

Early relationships with parents and caregivers aid in molding a child's perceptions and behaviors in future relationships. Research from Harvard's Center on the Developing Child states that "even the development of a child's brain architecture depends on the establishment of these relationships." Core relationships that surround your child (including you, your partner, family, friends and teachers) will impact cognitive, social, emotional, physical and behavioral development of your child.

This behavior is known as attachment style. Your child will use this as a model for future relationships. Attachment styles include:

  • Secure Attachment: This is characterized by feeling secure and connected to the other person in a way that is supportive and loving, yet independent.
  • Anxious Preoccupied Attachment: Characterized by neediness, insecurity and distrust, this style is about seeking security and completion in the other person.
  • Fearful Avoidant Attachment: Often, people with this attachment style recognize that they want to be close to others to fulfill their needs, but are fearful of being hurt.

Development of a secure attachment style offers your child the healthiest, most balanced lifestyle. Learning from primary caregivers, it's important that parents choose positive role models. The most important of these is a child care center or caregiver that your child will spend considerable time with.

You can encourage healthy bonding by treating your child to fun experiences that guide your child's development and build self-confidence. Schedule a class at Gymboree Play & Music where you and your infant can attend a class, playing, learning and bonding in a safe, fun environment with peers.
