The activation relationship is based on activation theory, or the idea that a child’s confidence is a result of the promotion by parents of risk-taking behavior during exploration. Most literature in the area of parent-child attachment focuses on the mother as the primary attachment figure.

Attachment is one such theoretical orientation, developed by John Bowlby out of his dissatisfaction with other existing theories. Although Bowlby rejected psychoanalytical explanations for early infant bonds, the theory of attachment was influenced in part by the principles of psychoanalysis; in particular the observations by Ana Freud and Dorothy Burlingham of young children separated from
