Emotional Security Lab
Even though emotional security can seem like quite an abstract concept, it shows up in the daily life in very tangible ways:
Still feeling like you are a good mum/dad when you are having a rubbish day
Listening to a request for help and feeling like you have space to consider your reply 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?
This is one of the reasons why I would not want to go back to being my 10 years younger me, even if I could. I really like all the ways I am more comfortable in my skin these days.
What about the children? What a stronger sense of security could mean to them?
Openness to trying new things?
Getting along better with siblings/friends?
Persevering with tricky tasks?
Being kinder to themselves and others?
Child's emotional security develops in relationships with their parents and other people, through countless daily experiences of being seen, heard, 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 learn more - Emotional Security Lab covers 12 simple, doable modules that will help you to nurture your child's sense of security.
