This paper analyzes the correlation between early attachment security and peer relationships in childhood and adolescence. According to the results of the research, children with a safe attachment showed better social competence during their growing up, had better quality of friendships, better contact with peers, more empathy and cooperativeness in contact with them, less hostility, avoidance of
contacts, dependent behavior, striving to be the center of attention. This connection is explained by the fact that the relationship between a parent and a child at an early age is a model of later close emotional relationships, on the basis of which the child learns about reciprocity, forms a concept about himself and the world around him, builds confidence, and the ability to self-regulate emotions, which all together is a valuable resource in peer relationships.
