EMOTIONAL SECURITY IN THE FAMILY
An Online Group for Parents
Even though emotional security can seem like quite an abstract concept, it can benefit your daily life in very tangible ways:
Still feeling like you are a good mum or dad when you are having a rubbish day
Listening to a request for help and feeling like you have space to consider your response rather than jumping straight in
Feeling more at ease about leaving the party when you feel like going home
Having regular 'me' time
Do you feel like your sense of security has grown and deepened over the years?
What about your children? What could a stronger sense of security mean to them?
Openness to trying new things?
Getting along better with siblings and friends?
Persevering with tricky tasks?
Being kinder to themselves and others?
Children's emotional security develops in relationships with their parents and other people, through countless daily experiences of being seen and heard and their needs being acknowledged and met (even if that need is to have some space whilst they are making sense of things on their own).
If you would like to explore this further Emotional Security in the Family consists of 12 simple, do-able modules that will help you to nurture your and your child's sense of security. This structure is intended to meet you where you are at and to help you feel inspired to discover what else is possible for you.
