Regular price $14.99
Kudos to Barbara and Cathy for showing us how to keep the heart-connection with our child strong and healthy, regardless of their age.
—Dr. Tim Kimmel, Author of Grace-Based Parenting
This book addresses what I consider to be the most important topic a parent must understand. Connection, or healthy attachment, is also the subject I’m most asked about from child care professionals.
I believe an understanding of the basics of child development, and particularly the importance of attachment, will encourage you to follow your God-given desire to nurture.
Healthy attachment doesn’t make a child clingy and codependent—it equips kids to have healthy relationships throughout their lifetime. The parent-child relationship sets children up for success - or challenges.
Once you understand attachment, parenting makes a lot more sense.
The basics of child development, and the importance of attachment, will equip you to create meaningful and secure relationships that last a lifetime. You’ll discover:
- What is healthy attachment
- How to nurture connection in various ages and stages
- The crucial differences between punishment and discipline
- How child development research aligns with biblical truth
Attachment doesn’t create a clingy and codependent child—it equips kids to have healthy relationships throughout their lifetime.
Co-authored with my friend and colleague, Cathy Chalmers, M.A.
