Zeynep Biringen - Raising a Secure Child

from the publisher:
A new perspective on parenting and connecting with children...

Written by the foremost researcher on emotional availability in parent-child relationships, this guide will change the way parents relate to children, resulting in more fulfilling relationships on both sides. The first part of the book explains the eight general principles of emotional availability, and uses a wealth of examples to illustrate these principles in action.

First, readers will learn how to identify their own strategies for creating an emotional connection with their children, assess the strengths and weaknesses in their current parent-child relationships, and develop new ways of creating stronger, more nourishing emotional bonds with children of any age. The second half of the book applies the principles of emotional availability to a wide range of ages, situations, and special needs.
