6. Understanding Circle Of Security Parenting

The Circle of Security is a framework that helps parents understand and respond to their child's emotional needs, promoting secure attachment and healthy development. It revolves around the idea that children need a secure base from which they can explore the world and a safe haven to return to when they need comfort and support.

In the Circle of Security, parents aim to strike a balance between providing a secure base and allowing their child to explore and develop independence. They learn to attune to their child's emotions, respond sensitively to their needs, and provide a secure and nurturing environment. This helps children develop a sense of trust, self-esteem, and resilience, as they learn that their caregiver is there for them and can be relied upon.
