Attaching Through Love, Hugs and Play

Capturing the warmth and fun of forming close relationships with children, this book offers simple advice to parents of children who find it difficult to attach and bond–whether following adoption, divorce, or other difficult experiences. This book describes how to use the latest thinking on attachment in your daily parenting. It reveals sensory techniques which have proven to help children bond and explains why routines like mealtimes and play time are so imprtant in helping children to attach. The book offers positive ideas for respoonding to immediate crisis like difficult behaviour and meltdowns, but importantly also offers longer-term strategies to help children to develop the skills they need to cope as they grow up–the ability to plan, concentrate, and be in control of their emotions.
