A child’s most basic need is a nurturing and attuned connection with a parent or primary caregiver. It begins at birth with touch, eye contact and a sensory rich environment. Learning about and responding to your child’s needs is the foundation for building healthy relationship and secure attachment that will last a lifetime.
Circle of Security is a relationship-based parenting program that teaches parents of children birth to age 8 how to strengthen the parent-child bond and offers effective ways to respond to their child’s needs and behaviors. To explore more Circle of Security resources or to find a Circle of Security provider, visit Resources for Parents – Circle of Security International or contact Oklahoma Warmline for resources in your area.
Moments don’t have to be “big” to make a difference in establishing a healthy relationship with your child and fulfilling their emotional and neurological development needs.
