Mom Refuses Her Baby’s Cry For Attention…Now Watch The Baby’s Reaction.
The bond between mother and child is like no other. What happens when a mother leaves a baby — who is begging for her not to leave — alone in a room? The fascinating experiment below is about to show you.
As soon as the mothers walk back into the room, however, it’s her baby’s reaction that says a lot about their bond and relationship — at least, that’s what many behavioral pros believe.
In the video below, you’ll see the four types of “attachment” between mothers and their babies: secure, insecure, avoidant, and ambivalent.
This experiment dates back to the 1960s and 1970s, when developmental psychologist Mary Ainsworth developed a method called the Strange Situation Protocol. In it, she observed how babies and toddlers reacted to their mother’s sudden disappearance and reappearance. These Strange Situation tests resulted in a theoretical system aimed at identifying various infant attachment styles for children at the age of 11 months to 18 months.
In the theory of attachment, each of these attachment styles is considered a direct result of the type of care and responsiveness provided by Mom, or the primary caregiver. At the same time, mothers and professionals alike agree that infants are born with different personalities. Some are naturally sensitive or anxious, while others are very calm. In the end, it’s important to remember that this is all just theory.
