Document Summary

Heavy emphasis that attachment is a result of what mom does. We blame mom for screwing up but then these 2 approaches dont account for what child brings to the attachment/relationship. Cognitive developmental approach has little to say abt which pple one will become attached to (mom, dad). Instead what this approach does is that it reminds us of wholistic nature of development. The attachemnt relationship depends on the child"s level of cognitive understanding or cognitive development. According to this approach, if yure gunna be attached to a certain person, yu have to be able to have certain skills such as discriminating btwn mom from other pple (mom from dad). You have to recognize that mom continues to exist even if u cant see her. So the child has to have certain level of object permanence. According to this view, it"s not an accidnet that attachment begins to appear 7 to 9 months of age.
