Securely attached children develop enhanced social skills and social understanding that strengthen their competence in interactions with parents and caregivers in learning environments. In this light, their strengths and pitfalls can be better understood through these reports by successful interactions with social partners towards better development.
Consistent with the sensitivity that initially contributes to a secure attachment, considerable research has shown that the parents of securely attached children continue to respond supportively in ways that promote the child’s social and cognitive achievements.

Furthermore, increased a good conversation that is likely to promote better understanding.
