Undivided Attention: Creating Secure Attachments in Families.
Kirkland, John
Early Child Development and Care, v97 p185-94 1994
Families in individual-orientated Western society spend little time together and tend to focus on accomplishments rather than belonging. Proposes that human development is not an individual but a group process and that a nest of ongoing support during childhood encourages a sense of belonging. This support should include at least 10 minutes of undivided child-caregiver interaction each day. (MDM)
