“We are relational beings. Whether early in life or in adulthood, coming to know ourselves within the context of being known – genuinely understood, honoured and cared for- can make all the difference”
Raising Secure and happy children is our aim isn’t it? Most of us begin parenthood with a positive intention, however it can be that our emotions or own experiences of being parented can get in the way. Sometimes, we can act out our own pain from our childhood and therefore inflict pain on our children.
The Circle of Security Parenting course is designed not to teach “perfect parenting” but to help you be “good enough”, where your relationship with your child will be secure, well balanced, meeting your child’s needs, while enabling you to apply effective boundaries without feeling guilty. It gives caregivers a “roadmap” to refer to, but ultimately promotes and encourages the individual wisdom of the caregiver.
It helps you look beneath children’s behaviour, to discover their genuine relationship needs and breaks out the box that children are their behaviour. By linking certain behaviours in young children to specific motivations, it gives meaning to how infant behaviours are organised in the gaining of attachment to their caregivers to feel more secure.
“lasting change comes from parents developing specific relationship capabilities, rather than learning techniques to manage behaviour”
