Circle of Security


At times all parents feel lost or wonder what their child might need from them. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you. The Circle of Security® Parenting program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Learning Objectives of the series:

  • Understand your child's emotional world by learning to read their emotional needs

  • Support your child's ability to successfully manage emotions

  • Enhance the development of your child's self-esteem

  • Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure

"Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children exhibit increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and peers, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure."
