As caregivers, there are times when we feel lost about what our children need. This can lead us to reactions like frustration, stress, disconnecting from the present, believing we're not a good parent, and more.
So imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.
Maybe you could:
The Circle of Security program can help you.
What is the Circle of Security?
The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure caregiver-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
It provides you with a concrete framework for navigating the "circle" of emotional communication and connection between you and your child.
This is not a model of behavior modification and management. Instead, the approach you'll be taught believes that shifting what's happening (or not happening) in the attachment relationship inherently changes behaviors.
Using this model, you'll understand your child's emotional cues and miscues, know how and when to respond to their needs, understand and regulate your own stress reactions, plus many more aspects of caregiver-child enrichment.
