The development of brain areas responsible for interaction, empathy, understanding, love, and responsiveness to others occurs as a result of secure attachment. A primary relationship during infancy directly influences these qualities.

In a blog post I read recently, attachment parenting was described as a trend. My sincere hope is this will not become a common opinion. Attachment is a scientifically proven human need which directly impacts brain connections.  We have come a long way in beginning to make the critical importance of a secure attachment better understood, but still have a long way to go before this is common practice for all children. Hopefully you will help in continuing to make this essential information well known. 
Throughout the week I will post additional information that can assist in creating greater awareness of the positive and long lasting impact that is made through attachment.

Bonding with Your Baby Parenting Advice for Developing a Secure Attachment Bond is an extremely useful article on this topic.
