“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men”

Fredrick Douglas

Attachment is an emotional bond with another person. It is the foundation of your child’s ability to connect with others in a healthy way and starts from birth with the parents & caregivers.

Research tells us children need a secure base to explore, learn and relate to their world. It’s necessary for their wellbeing, motivation and healthy development. Secure attachment is essential for their safety, regulation, adaptability, and resilience. 

On the 30th July 2020, Melo & Kylie presented a webinar on an ‘Introduction to Secure Attachment with your Child’. IN the webinar, they discussed:

  • The four attachment styles of children & adults for relationships.
  • The vital role we have as parents.
  • The concepts we need to understand for secure attachment.
  • The developmental stages of our child’s attachment.

Watch the webinar and learn why so many parents include Secure Attachment with your Child in their toolkit of knowledge to bring out the very best in their children.
