Studies on the role of the father in the development of infant attachment were excluded from the authors' previous meta-analysis on sensitivity and attachment. This rejoinder to discussants presents new meta-analytic evidence on the association between paternal sensitivity and infant-father attachment, and on the association between infant-mother and infant-father attachment. Combining the findings from several earlier meta-analyses, the authors present a data-based model of attachment within the family system. References. (Author abstract modified)
