Safety, feeling at home, trust, self-confidence, creativity, and comfort in exploring the world, are things all children should have. From an early age, children form attachments that become the foundation of their future relationships. Strong bonds with their world (parents, educators, plants and animals) can only begin with a healthy attachment to themselves. With practical tips and real-life examples from an experienced educator, this insightful book explores how the process of healthy attachment develops in young children (until 6 years old), what conditions are needed for becoming well bonded and how carers and educators can help in this important process.
