Winnicot’s (1953) work on mothers and infants demonstrated the important for mothers to be emotionally ready to be a ‘good enough mother’ by having tolerance of waiting out a child’s frustration and the confidence in providing satisfaction (Oates, 2005). Bowlby ultimately was influenced by work from the Robertson’s. The Robertson’s (1989) studied separation anxiety in children (Oates, 2005). The behaviour of the child once separated from their parents reflected how strong the attachment is. The combination of winncot and the Robertson’s work inspired Bowlby attachment theory (Oates,

Once the seed of doubt is planted and a person is insecure it can lead to an emotional withdraw from one partner to the other. In short being dishonest can lead to pain and it could create a gap.

No one will ever really know how the little boy must of felt; having little communication with his mother, this must have been tough on him. Even though he was not capable of writing notes, he still managed to communicate with his mother by drawing pictures.

On this test the abusing mothers indicated a high current level of attachment disorder, primarily anxious attachment, but with some tendency toward detachment as well. Thus the abusing mothers in the study demonstrated their overall sensitivity to separation, especially mild separation, and their feelings of helplessness anxiety, and anger in response to significant separation experiences. DeLozier suggest that these findings support the prediction that the abusing mothers in the study have experienced difficulty in their childhood attachments and in the development of internal representations of significant others as accessible and reliable, resulting in consequent adult attachment difficulties as well as in possible difficulties in the development of appropriate care-taking behaviour. There are implications that DeLozier perceives from her research and she summarises them as
