Helping yourself & others
Attachment is important early and throughout a child’s growing years. It sets the stage for healthy relationships throughout our lives.
Attachment can be developed and improved any time. Even if difficult life circumstances and challenges have interfered with attachment, it’s never too late to provide what babies and young children need to feel loved. Whether you are a new parent, a parent who has been reunited with your child, a parent in transition after divorce or other life circumstances, an adoptive or foster parent, a grandparent, or anyone else with the responsibility of raising a child, there are tools, resources, and a network of support—especially other parents—that can help make the task feel less daunting and more fulfilling for everyone.
