Child attachment to one parent (mother or father)

child attachment to one parent (mother or father)
Why would a child become attached to one parent more than the other?
Before you can understand why such attachment happens you need to understand how the child develops his personality in his early years. After going through certain experiences the child develops certain unconscious goals that shape his life style later on.
These unconscious goals determine to a great extent his attachment towards his parents, his preferred parent and whether he wants to be like his mother or father. (see How childhood experiences affect adulthood)
In this article i will tell you why would a child become attached to one parent and not the other.
Child attachment to mother or father theories
Here are some reasons why would a child become attached to one parent and not the another:
The consequences of Being attached to one parent
While sometimes no problems occur as a result of being attached to one parent still at many cases improve personality development can happen to the child.
If for example the mother always appeared not to be in control of her life then in addition to not being attached to her the children might grow up wanting not to be like her and in such a case you might find them becoming control freaks who feel insecure all the time. In the Solid Self confidence program i said that insecurities developed at our early years are usually learned as a result of seeing the way our parents deal with life.
As i said in the beginning of the article the child determines his life style in his early years and in such a case the children determined that they don't want to be like their mothers!!
If you found your child overly attached to one of you then you'd better examine this attachment on a deeper level in order to allow your child to develop normally.
