The correct answer is C. This child is showing
secure attachment style. The childís behavior,
especially toward the parent upon reunion, is
indicative of the quality of the overall parentchild
attachment. Children who are distressed
when the mother leaves and happy at her return
are showing secure attachment.
Answer A is incorrect. Children with anxious
attachment are extremely depressed when their
mother departs. The child will be ambivalent
when she returns, seeking to remain close to
the mother but resentful, and resistant when
the mother initiates attention.
Answer B is incorrect. Attachment disorder occurs
in children who fail to develop secure attachment
to loving, protective caregivers. These
children are left without an important foundation
for healthy development and may develop
emotional, behavioral, social, and developmental
problems. This child is displaying normal secure
attachment; therefore, the childís behavior
does not suggest an attachment disorder.
Answer D is incorrect. Stranger anxiety occurs
between 6 months and 2 years of age, and it is
a normal part of development. It refl ects preferential
attachment to the mother over other
possible attachment fi gures. Stranger anxiety
would be refl ected if the child began crying
when being handled by strangers and if he or
she was then soothed by the mother. This anxiety
is not what is demonstrated.
Answer E is incorrect. Symbolism-based behavior
occurs during Piagetís preoperational
stage of cognitive development. Examples of
this behavior include using a transitional object,
such as a blanket, to represent a parent.
The preoperational stage lasts from about 2 to
7 years of age. The symbolic thinking permits
more fl exibility and planning in parent-child
problem solving during this stage.
