Creating Loving Attachments: Parenting with ‘PACE’ to Nurture Confidence & Security in the Troubled Child
Kim S. Golding & Daniel Hughes
An invaluable resource for all carers and practitioners involved with the care of children.
All children need love, but for troubled children, a loving home is not always enough. Those who have experienced trauma need to be parented in a way that helps them feel safe and secure, builds attachments and allows them to heal.
Playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy (PACE) are four elements of parenting that can help children to feel confident and secure. This book shows why these elements are important to a child's development. Real-life examples and typical dialogues between parents and children illustrate how this can be done in everyday life, and simple stories highlight the ideas behind PACE.
This positive book will show how parenting with love and PACE is invaluable to a child's development, and will act as a guide to helping children to feel happy, confident and secure.
