John Bolwby’s original research into the nature and origin of childhood attachment indicated that for about 60% of children the quality of these early experiences was good enough for the child to feel secure in their relationship with their significant caregivers.  The prevalence and implications of children not forming secure bonds is discussed again in research carried out in Princeton University, Columbia University, the London School of Economics and Political Science and the University of Bristol.  Researchers found that infants under the age of three who do not form strong bonds with their mothers or fathers are more likely to be aggressive, defiant and hyperactive as adults
