What are the implications of the recognition of the importance of developing secure attachment systems—a concept that is strongly supported by a variety of evidence? First, it is not gender specific, and the author points this out. Second, there are many ways that this can happen, and in our society, with so many situations where both parents are working, either by necessity or choice, childcare programs need to be aware of the importance of these concepts in developing programs of infant/childcare. As the author correctly points out, recognition of an infant’s needs in this area is not a disguised way to subjugate women. These needs have a biological basis, and the author’s discussion of this issue in chapter 10 is thoughtful.
