Mid-Valley Parenting

Circle of Security

Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children exhibit increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and peers, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure. The Circle of Security is a relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. Please join us for an 8 week class to better understand how the way YOU were parented directly effects all the relationships in your life, including the one with your child.

• Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read the emotional needs
