The case of Christopher is not an ordinary one, he needs more attention and care than other children as he has some issues and his brain does not work properly. He lives with his father who is not happy with his habit of eating everything and pooping on the floor or anywhere. While Christopher is trying to build trust between him and his father, his father tells him something astonishing. He tells him that he had murdered someone and that he lied to him. However, his father wants Christopher to trust him now. Christopher calculates in his mind that since he lied to him already and he had murdered someone, therefore, he might murder Christopher as well and he should not trust him. Thinking in this manner led Christopher to plan an escape from the house as he is frightened of being murdered (Haddon).
Just like Christopher, we had a neighbor who had two children. The parents used to go to office while caregiver looked after them and used to pick and drop them from their school. One afternoon on their way back from the school the caregiver accidentally hit on a pole. Children were frightened, although no one was injured. Despite of being with him and travelling with him for more than 1.5 years, the children never drove with him again because they did not trust him anymore and were frightened like Christopher.

Moreover, studies reveal positive results between avoidant and ambivalent attachment behaviors and their predisposition of individuals to anxiety disorders.
Cognitive development in children is associated with a series of changes in their internal development of the brain and the perception of things in their environment. It includes the changes that they experience in gaining intelligence from the environment, their ability to remember events in their memory.
Though the number of cases is more prevalent in third world countries, the issue is still an area of concern in the developed countries. This issue has an impact on the approach and life of many individuals. It is not only restricted to the family members but also extends to the teachers of the child and other people he or she comes into contact with.
First component is the infant’s needs that he wants the caregiver to fulfill, and the second component is the timely response of the caregiver. The attachment occurs when the infant has a sure feeling that the parent or the caregiver will always be there to fulfill his needs of hunger, thirst, clothing, cleaning, and the like.

The growth of a child, from early childhood to young adulthood, encompasses a period when many biological, emotional and psychological changes occur and this is a crucial time for them. This is why there are theories being advanced regarding child development and the best ways on how to achieve the goals of helping a child develop from dependence to independence or autonomy.
Babies are very fragile individual and can crawl anywhere or can be hurt anytime. They need to be constantly watch and being held most of the time. (Pantley 2003, 4-6). Natalie and Richard's concern is more on the emotional needs of the baby. They wanted to make sure that the caregivers in the child care center have the capability to demonstrate the kind of bonding and attachment that can replace parent's affection during their absence.
According to the paper the dependence of the child comes from a sense of protection and security; this sense is necessary in a child’s life for its social and emotional upliftment. The child needs a strong base to know the society and the environment where it is living in and the child finds this strong base in its mother.
The environment in this context implies the social interaction between an individual and the loved ones. The caregiver is main determinant in the child’s psychological well being. Physical and emotional
