Marriage and Family Expert, Amos Alumanda, highlights the importance of attachment in an article reported in StandardDigtial.

According to Alumanda: “Being a parent, be definition, is about being present.’ He goes on to explain: “That would include: emotionally, psychologically, spiritually and physically”.

The full article provides an interesting link to Bowlby’s Theory of Attachment and might provide some nice background reading or extension work when teaching attachment.
