Royal Baby and Attachment Style

photo_6343_20080618Hello,
As I write this from the UK, we are all waiting with baited breath as the Duchess of Cambridge is in labor at St. Mary’s Hospital with Prince William by her side. Later today, I plan to take my kids over to Buckingham Palace to read the birth announcement the Queen is set to post. New babies always make me think about attachment and how crucial the child parent bond is to future romantic attachments. As Linda Hatch says in her PsychCentral.com blog,  “We repeat in adulthood whatever we did to get love as a child.” Let’s hope the Royal family practices attachment parenting. The good news for the rest of us is that attachment injuries can be healed through therapy and sound relationship choices.
