Attachment varies in style or quality 2. No (or very, very few) children are “unattached” 2. Parenting doesn’t have to be perfect to result in secure attachment 1. “Good enough” parent 3. Attachment security predicts later functioning, but is open to change and is not a 100% guarantee of later functioning Module 9: Adolescence and Adulthood I.
