Greta Streed  When a child becomes attached they may be either insecurely or securely  attached. In secure attachment the babies can be quickly comforted and explore  environments securely and can be away from there mothers for brief periods of time (p.  208). Insecurely attached infants however are disturbed by a mother’s departure and on  return they often push mothers away (p.209). One consequence of insecure attachment  is on the child’s cognitive development. These children have difficulty with problem  solving and exhibit frustration and whining during problem solving. A study down showed  that securely attached infants were curious and found interest and enjoyment from  problem solving (p.218).  Another area affected is the child’s social development. A recent study showed  that “from infancy to age 19 early attachment is important for later social behavior.
