When you say “attachment” next to the word “parent” too many people write it off as something trendy and requiring hairy armpits to deliver on.

But the science of child development has irrefutably shown that attachment isn’t a trend and it isn’t something that only a select group of parents should be interested in. In fact, attachment, or the connection between big people and children, is one of the most important, if not the most important, foundations of healthy child development. So much so that the United Nations listed as a key principle the child’s right to grow up “in an atmosphere of happiness, love, and understanding.”

In light of this, here is an infographic to help debunk the myths around attachment parenting for you, and very concisely illustrate what attachment is and is not.

You’re welcome.
