Calling all parents and children!

As we talked about some child psychology in the latest podcast episode, it had me thinking about today’s world of helicopter parents. Totally akin to Ainsworth’s idea of Insecure Ambivalent/Resistant attachment style, children with helicopter mothers would most likely display this type of attachment. As a young adult (am I still considered that?? lol…), my friends are becoming new parents and I get to watch social media explode with pictures and videos of their babies. I get to see them clamor over every little achievement and I get to see them become overly distressed from separation. Ever so hopeful, I pray that this is a symptom of new parenthood and will quickly relax into sensitive yet independent relationships so their children can grow up to become securely attached adults. I recently read an article from the Washington Post that reminded me of what we discussed:

Interestingly, I’ve seen many people like this growing up and finally had that “ah-ha” moment after learning about attachment styles. Any insights from our viewers/listeners out there??
