The first 3 years are very important in children. Because “attachment”, which affects all life, occurs especially in this age range. Let’s know that attachment is two-sided and insecure attachment is also a form of trauma.
While the child is attached to the mother, the mother is also attached to the child. But attachment of the child to the mother is critical because attachment of the child is a developmental need.
If the child is insecurely attached to the caregiver, it is traumatic for the child and this is attachment trauma. Attachment trauma occurs when the emotional needs of the child, apart from their physical needs, are not met in a timely and adequate manner. The time spent with the child and how the time passes determines the development of attachment trauma and is one of the important reasons for the child’s sexual identity problem.
Brief summary of the word;
The first 3 years, when 80% of the brain is formed, is very critical and in this age range, the child creates a sense of self. If the child can step into life with the trust he receives from his parents, see unconditional love, grow freely within healthy limits, the child can be protected from attachment trauma and it will be easier for him to continue his life as a healthy individual.
