What do healthy relationships mean for a child

Many studies have examined children's attachment relationships and their effects on development. A good relationship with a positive attachment figure can have important, long-lasting effects on a child's development. A healthy relationship is shown to:

• enhance a child's pretend play,

• promote a child's healthy exploration,

• enrich a child's educational experiences in school,

• lead to healthy self-concepts and self-understanding,

• increase a child's confidence,

• increase a child's learning through experimentation,

• lead to positive relationships with friends.
