Play Therapy 

Play therapy is a form of therapy that helps children express their emotions and experiences through play. It is a non-invasive and effective way to help children cope with difficult situations and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Play therapy can be used to address a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and behavioral problems. If you're looking a way to help your child work through their emotions, play therapy may be a great option to consider.

Attachment

Books

Attachment refers to the emotional bonds that form between individuals, particularly between infants and their caregivers. We believe that these early relationships shape a person's ability to form and maintain relationships throughout their life. 

Attachment style can have a significant impact on romantic relationships. Those with a secure attachment style tend to have healthier and more satisfying relationships, while those with insecure attachment styles may struggle with trust, communication, and emotional intimacy. Understanding your own attachment style and that of your partner can help improve the dynamics of your relationship.

Attachment styles can have a significant impact on parenting. Parents with a secure attachment style tend to be more responsive and attuned to their child's needs, while those with an insecure attachment style may struggle with emotional regulation and have difficulty providing consistent care. Understanding your own attachment style can help you become a more effective and nurturing parent.

Most Important Thing a Parent Can D0

Hands Down!

Do your own work in order to move from blindness to sight with your child. 

Trust this process!

Parents play a crucial role in their child's mental health and well-being. It's important for parents to recognize that their child's struggles may not solely be the result of their child's actions or behaviors. By taking the initiative to seek therapy for themselves, parents can gain a better understanding of their own emotions and behaviors, which can ultimately lead to a healthier and more supportive environment for their child to thrive in.
