Classifications of Attachment to Mother at Age 5 and 6 and the Relationship between Temperament and Attachment
Kye Ok Hong
The purpose of the present study was to classify the attachment to mothers of kindergarten children based on a system for classifying attachment organization developed by Main and Cassidy(1988) and to examine the relationship of children`s temperament with attachment. 32 children and their mothers were observed and videotaped in the strange situation. Mothers were administered the children`s temperament questionnaire revised by Chun(1992). The data were analysed by t-test. The results showed similarity between the attachment classifications of Main and Cassidy(1988) and those of Korean children. These results can be considered partial validation of Main and Cassidy`s classification system for the measurement of the attachment of 5-to 6-year-old Korean children. Children`s temperament has significant correlation to the security of attachment.
