Building a Strong Attachment
Having spent some time training in Attachment Focused Therapy to work with parents and children, I wanted to share the above slide. All behaviour is a way of communicating unmet needs. How we respond to our children will be influenced by our own attachment style. Building a strong, secure attachment means responding to and meeting our children's needs through playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy, or PACE. So, forget 'time out'...our children need 'time in!'
