Explain how child care has been influenced by findings of research into attachmentWatch
How do I answer it
Childcare has been influenced by findings of research into attachment since it shows that if children aren't looked after by their parents then good substitute emotional care should be provided. An example of this would be the Hodges and Tizard longitudinal study which highlighted that the children were not able to form attachments and suffered problems in later life as a result of this. Because of these findings, the government has been looking to reduce the length of the adoption process so that children do not miss their sensitive period and still have a chance of bonding with an attachment figure.
