Attachment develops when kids are nurtured, cared for, and repeatedly soothed by caregivers. Thanks to attachment, kids learn how to trust and love other people. However, in cases of neglectful behaviors, adults do not provide kids with enough care or do not make an effort to create a strong bond with their child. This results in the development of reactive attachment disorder (RAD), making it difficult for children to form meaningful relationships with other people. It also acts as a hindrance to the development of social skills in children. Children are more likely to be diagnosed with reactive attachment disorder than adults.
