The authors did not conduct any primary research but relied on literature review of other peer-reviewed journal articles. The relevance of this article to the research is that it has a focus on the attachment theory and discusses the significance of emotionally meaningful, intimate and open relationships between children and parents. The researchers show that children exhibit sensitivity towards the circumstances under which the distress takes place and the responses they exhibited towards distress cues are not automatically compassionate.
