- Children are mostly influenced by their parents and seek an emotional attachment in order to feel a sense of security.
However, due to dismissive, insensitive, or intrusive behaviors from parents, children often adopt the avoidant attachment style as a result of their encumbered reliance toward their parents and evade genuine intimacy in the relationship. Consequently, these children feel anger and resentment.
In response, the avoidant attached child acquires prematurely in life to suppress the natural propensity to search for a parent when terrified, distraught, or in discomfort.
Debauched parenting results in an emotionally depraved child. Furthermore, the avoidant attached children believes that others are either incapable or unwilling of loving them; therefore, others are not trustworthy and interaction with others is to be avoided.
In order to diminish the characteristics of an avoidant attachment style, parents must be present and must be able to provide comfort in the times of need for their children.
