Product description

Despite what some current child-development fads may claim, a child's future cognitive ability depends more on the emotional attunement between the parent and child than it does on cognitive stimulation, such as instructional flashcards or videos. Secure attachment gives kids a head start on development; they grow into well-adjusted, emotionally and psychologically stable, and resilient adults. This book looks at the biology of attachment theory: How does parent/child attunement affect the growth and development of the baby's brain and social and emotional functions?This book teaches parents to understand how their child's brain is developing at each stage of growth, how to foster social skills, and how attunement to their babies' needs offers parents the basic building blocks to raise a healthy, securely attached child. By understanding the role of secure attachment and affect regulation in development, parents of children age birth to 5 will learn how to create a secure environment so that their child can grow into their fullest potential.

Review quote

"Drawing on the latest scientific research and her extensive clinical experience, Newton has written a practical guide for parents who seek to foster an attachment bond with their young children (infants through three years of age). Since a secure attachment forms the foundation for children's later social and emotional development, this is must read book for parents. " --Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, professor of psychology at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ, and cofounder and director emeritus of the Association for Play Therapy
