Why isn't all developmental psychology research longitudinal?

Sometimes a longitudinal study is impractical; sometimes it is not necessary; and sometimes a cross-sectional study will provide better data. Some time spans for longitudinal research would make the project unmanageable. To study the development of motor skills from age 6 months to age one year is a reasonable project. But to study changes in motor skills from adolescence through age 90 would take so long that (1) expenses would be astronomical; (2) some subjects would drop out of the project, move out of the test area, die, or suffer illnesses or accidents that would disqualify them for the study; (3) the researchers may not survive the time span; (4) during the decades, research would be published that would make the study either pointless or less valuable....You can easily think of other factors that would make some long-term longitudinal studies impractical. Longitudinal studies are not always necessary. Some long-term longitudinal studies have been conducted, of course, especially in medicine, where we want to know, for example, the long-term effects of medications, and nothing will do except that we have a baseline and periodic test panels on all of the patients. But you can see that for some purposes -- motor skills is one of them -- a carefully designed study with carefully chosen subjects would be more feasible and would suffice.

Is child psychology the same as developmental psychology?

Not really. Developmental psychology studies the development of the human mind. That is, how the psychology develops, changes, and comes to be. Also, in developmental psychology, usually, you study the development of the healthy mind in the belief that deviations from a normative (healthy) development gives rise to psychopathology (the unhealthy mind if you will). Child psychology is not really that interested in the normative. They focus mostly on the pathological child, and how to steer a pathological development in a more normative direction.

Another distinction is that developmental psychology is a branch of theoretical psychology, whereas child psychology is a branch of clinical psychology.

The emotional bond between an infant and the primary caregiver?

The bond that is formed between an infant and its primary caregiver is called an attachment bond. This bond is important for the infant's development, helping fulfill the infant's need for safety, security and protection. It is important to note that this attachment can develop equally with either a father or mother or whoever is the primary caregiver. The goal of the attachment bond is to keep the infant in proximity to the caregiver and maintain access to safety and security that the caretaker provides.

What is immaturity?

Maturity is often used to describe the physiological development of an individual, gauging whether [he] has fully developed their bodies. In psychology, maturity refers to an individual's ability to appropriately cope with stressful situations, as well as how [he] responds to traumatic or difficult circumstances. This can also include the person's attitude and behavioral responses to [his] environment and surroundings, especially when conflict arises. Therefore, psychological immaturity refers to one's inability to appropriately cope with stressful situations, traumatic events, and difficult circumstances. Psychological immaturity also encompasses an individual's attitude and how [he] reacts to changes in [his] environment.

One such example would be if someone's requests are rejected: if that person keeps calm and reasonably addresses the conflict by either accepting it or negotiating with the person who rejected their requests, that shows psychological maturity and an appropriate development of [his] emotional responses. If that same individual were to become angry and irate, however, and begin to argue with the person or refuse to accept the response given, that generally displays psychological immaturity.

This differentiates between circumstances and perceptions, though, so the definition of what "maturity" is can differ between two people. Generally, however, psychological maturity is fundamentally defined as the advanced stage of one's logical reasoning and emotional control. Conversely, psychological immaturity would be the lack of development of such qualities.
