Attachment, parent employment, and child care
Attachment, parent employment, and child care.
Paul and Ava are parents to 3-month-old Kevin. After giving birth, Ava decided to spend several months at home caring for the baby. Although Ava enjoys being a stay-at-home mother, she plans to return to her full-time job in the near future. Friends and family members have expressed concerns about Ava returning to work so soon, and Paul’s parents are worried that Kevin may experience learning and behavioral problems if he attends child care at such a young age. Using research in the text as a guide, what advice would you give Paul and Ava? Do their friends and family have valid concerns? Why or why not? What types of support can Paul provide once Ava returns to work? What qualities should Paul and Ava look for when choosing a child-care center? Prepare a 5 -7 slide Power point presentation that addresses all of the questions above and explains the different types of attachment (secure, insecure – avoidant/resistant, disorganized). You will be creating a product that would help to make the transition smoother for Paul, Ava and their very concerned extended family
