Abstract

In this study, we attempted to map early attachment security to the development of social competence in preschool years. Participants were 48 mother dyads from two different countries (Portugal and the United States of America). Positive and significant correlations were found between the AQS security score and the social competence. The results suggest that the parent-child attachment relationships contribute to children's adaptation in the preschool peer group by promoting positive engagement with peers and by supporting a range of skills that underlie peer acceptance.
