- Attachment, youngest child,working mother
As a mother, having another job outside the home requires good skills in sharing time and attention between work and children. These skills will later affect the results of the attachment obtained between the mother and child. Especially for the youngest child who is basically more spoiled and always wants to be close to his mother. This study aims to find out the description of the attachment that exists between the youngest child and her working mother. The approach used is the qualitative case study. Participants were 2 daughters who were the youngest children and had working mothers. The research instrument uses non-participant observation and semi-structured interviews. Qualitative data analysis uses thematic data analysis techniques, and validation uses data triangulation techniques. The results of this study are that each participant belongs to the type of secure attachment, so that each participant has high self-esteem and high interpersonal trust. Although the intensity of the meeting between working mother and her daughter is smaller than other, but the quality of attention and love they get from the mother is very good.
