This book offers simple advice to parents of children who find it difficult to attach and bond -- whether following adoption, divorce or other difficult experiences. The Author describes how to use the thinking on attachment in your daily parenting. She reveals sensory techniques to help children bond and explains why routines like mealtimes and play time are so important in helping children to attach. The book offers positive ideas for responding to immediate crises like difficult behaviour and meltdowns, but importantly also offers longer-term strategies to help children to develop the skills they need to cope as they grow up -- the ability to plan, concentrate and be in control of their emotions.
