Suggestions for Reactive Attachment Disorder

Because reactive attachment disorder is often rooted from the disturbed emotional formative years of the child, usually under the age of 5, parents and caregivers can play a major role in the prevention of the risk of its development. There are simple and basic ways by which to reduce the occurrence of reactive attachment disorder:

  • Having lack of experience with a child should not be a hindrance for you to take care of them. Take classes or volunteer with children in order to learn the proper way to interact with children in a nurturing manner.
  • Learn to develop your specific skills in bonding with the child and educate yourself about attachment especially with children who have a background that includes foster care and orphanages.
  • Be actively engaged with children or babies who are in your care by playing with them, making eye contact, smiling, and talking at them.
  • Learn how to interpret the baby’s cues, such as different types of cries, in order to meet their needs more effectively and quickly.
  • Do not miss the opportunity to provide a warm and nurturing interaction with the child during feeding, changing diapers, and bathing.
  • Try to teach children to express emotions in words and lead by example.
  • For adults who have attachment problems, it is not too late to seek professional treatment. This will help resolve your own attachment problem and prevent the same thing occuring with your child.
