Mothers were administered the childrens 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 Cassidys classification system for the measurement of the attachment of 5-to 6-year-old Korean children. Childrens temperament has significant correlation to the security of attachment.
