About the Childhood Zone

Your childhood is everything that happens from when you are born to when you become an adult (whatever that means) and psychologists are fascinated by it. For example, attachment theory says that a strong emotional and physical attachment between a child and at least one parent or caregiver is critical to a child’s development.

Psychologists are interested in the different relationships children have, such as the roles of parents, and what happens when a child has multiple attachments, or none at all.
