Parenting a troubled child can be a very stressful experience. There is an overwhelming need to understand what is going on for your child, and most importantly, how to support them in the best ways possible. Whilst there are no ‘magic answers’, often knowing a little more about the difficulty your child is facing, and exploring different strategies to support them can be incredibly helpful.
Parent Seminar: Strengthening your child’s attachment
Babies and toddlers are shaped by the world around them. Early experiences of family, health and life events enables them to adapt and learn ways to cope with stress and the unexpected. Often, these children develop behaviour which can be challenging for the adults around them (e.g. ‘too needy’ or ‘too withdrawn’) and it can be helpful to understand this behaviour in terms of ‘attachment’. We explain the nuts & bolts of what attachment is, why it’s important and how to build on your child’s secure attachment.
Who this course is for
