A brilliant over view of the latest information about attachment theory, brain research, retained primitive reflexes, movement and learning and the importance of our relationship with our children. Every page is filled with practical and powerful information to guide us as we raise the next generation with love and awareness. Written with first hand practical knowledge from working with communities at risk as an occupational therapist the text is both readable and humble/ approachable in tone.show more
