The importance of child-mother or child-stable adult figure relationship has been well documented in attachment literature and research around the world. The physical and emotional availability of the mother enables the child to develop a secure sense of the world. We now know that secure babies and children explore their surroundings more, resulting in creating meaningful explanation of the world around him/her. More current research also shows that a small behaviour such as regular eye contact allows synapses in the brain to form, creating pathways in the brain for normal development of the children. This highlights the importance of adults, especially mothers in crucial developmental years of infants.
Secure children would be less fearful of their surroundings, and more likely to learn how to regulate their emotions. As they grow older, they are less likely to develop behavioural or mental health problems. Secure children are also more likely to have quality relationships later on in life. After all, children learn how to form and sustain relationships base on what they see, hear and experience. They are also more likely to learn better at school.
