What's your attachment story? What's your child's attachment story?
What are the elements of attachment?
How do you know if your child (no matter how old they are) is securely attached?
If not, what can you do?
Attachment research has found that a secure attachment style is predictive of low social anxiety and low social submissiveness (they have less anxiety and don't just go along with the crowd). Secure attachment is a predictor of emotional intelligence and the quality of life for the individual and the whole family.
Signs of a secure attachment style include:
Ability to regulate your emotions.
Easily trusting others.
Effective communication skills.
Ability to seek emotional support.
Comfortable being alone.
Comfortable in close relationships.
Ability to self-reflect in partnerships.
Being easy to connect with.
How can understanding attachment help me to help my child and family?
As parents, no matter how much experience we have, no matter how many books we’ve read, we all find ourselves in situations where we don’t know what do to, we don’t know why we did what we did, or don’t know why our children are acting they way they are acting.
We try to act in the best interests of our families, or sometimes just to the best of our abilities at a present moment. But without understanding the needs behind our behaviors and those of our children, we may not know how to meet those needs and find ourselves in the same situations over and over again.
In this enlightening course on attachment, you'll learn:
- What attachment is
(including clarification of some of the misunderstandings around attachment);
- To understand attachment in children and how it manifests in their behavior;
- Guidance to explore your own attachment story and see how your own patterns of attachment surface in interactions with your child; and
- Some simple, practical ways you can strengthen your attachment relationship with your child today.
