The kids are Not OK Workshop


The Kids Are Not OK

Children need stability and connection

The fundamentals of what children need have not changed. 

Stability and connection help support healthy attachment and feelings of safety. "Attachment Theory" tells us that parental accessibility and responsiveness build strong bonds. Furthermore, healthy attachments lead to a better ability to self-regulate, which can help reduce tantrums, angry outbursts, and behavior problems.

 (Please note I said reduce, everyone gets dysregulated sometimes, especially children. To a point, boundary testing and negative behavior are a healthy and appropriate part of growth and development.)
