Nerea Portu Zapirain / Maite Eceiza Arratibel. pp. 177-188
The aim of this piece of research was to analyze of affective relationships between parents and children during middle childhood and to determine their relationship with self-esteem in a sample group comprising 111 children (mean age=5.08 years). The projective measurement instruments used were: the “Attachment Story Completion Task” (Verschueren and Marcoen, 1994) and the “Puppet Interview” (Verschueren, Schoefs and Marcoen, 1986). The results obtained confirm that, in general, security in the representation of attachment is greater with mothers, and that the relationship between security of attachment with the father and self-esteem (positiveness of self) is greater in boys.
Keywords: representational models of attachment, fathers and mothers, self-esteem, middle
