Infant-Parent Attachment and Parental and Child Behavior during Parent-Toddler Storybook Interaction.
Frosch, Cynthia A.; Cox, Martha J.; Goldman, Barbara Davis
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v47 n4 p445-74 Oct 2001
Examined longitudinal associations between infant-parent attachment and parent/toddler behavior during storybook interaction. Found that infants with insecure-resistant attachment with mothers were less enthusiastic and focused during storybook interaction at 24 months. Mothers of insecure-resistant infants were less warm/supportive, and less stimulating of cognitive development than mothers of secure or avoidant infants. Found few attachment-related differences with toddler-father dyads. (Author/KB)
