    many children have more than one figure towards whom they direct attachment behavior. These figures are not treated alike but there is a strong bias for a child to direct attachment behavior mainly towards one particular person. Bowlby used the term "monotropy" to describe this bias. Researchers and theorists have abandoned this concept in so far as it may be taken to mean that the relationship with the special figure differs qualitatively from that of other figures
