Summary/Abstract: The article provides a psychological perspective on the family, on building relationships within the family, analyzing two important concepts from this point of view: attachment and parenting. From a relational point of view, the family represents the “safe base”, to which the child can return at any time when he needs safety, protection, affection. Attachment is the bond that is formed between the child and the mother / caregiver in the first years of life and is the prototype of the relationships that the child will build in the future. The attachment relationship puts its fingeprint on the child's development from a physical, cognitive and psychosocial point of view. Parenting is the ability of parents to be responsible for building the child's personality in the first years of life, to provide education, protection, affection, awareness of the parental role and of the importance of parent-child relationship in the first years of life. Educational styles, parental attitudes and parental competence are factors that decisively condition the construction of the parent-child relationship and the child's development in the first years of life.
