The study examined the relationship between increases in positive parenting (as measured by attempted understanding, emotional outbursts, and democratic/chaoitc family climate) and increased attachment security (as measured by ECR-RS) in a group of 173 Swedish 10- to 17- year-olds whose parents had attended a leader-led parenting group program. The results support the hypotesis that parental behavior still influences attachment security as children grow older and that interventions which strengthen positive parenting are important also during adolescence.
