    Insecure avoidant attachment is the correct option for the situation in which the infant has been found unhappy when the father leaves and also clings on his return and then hits him.

    • Insecure avoidant attachment: In this the child often being depressed by the lack of company of parent or sibling becomes distress and when gets the company shows mix responses towards the parent or sibling by showing love by hugging, kissing, clinging on them and may then hit them for keeping him or her separated and isolated for long.
    • The given situation is the example of insecure avoidant attachment in which the infant being unhappy for being separated by her father firstly shows her love for father by clinging and then finally hits him to show her anger of being left her alone.
    • In insecure disorganized attachment the parents neglect the child’s feelings of distress and fear. For example, a child may feel distressed to be left with the babysitter for long. The child may not show any response towards parent or the babysitter.
    • Insecure resistant attachment occurs when the child does not intermix with the caregiver or the parent by showing resistance in the form of anger, cry, or by hitting.
    • Secure attachment occurs when the parent or caregiver devote time to the child and the child feels comfortable and happy with the parent or caregiver.
