Raising a Secure Child

Glen Cooper

Secure children can be emotionally honest with their caregivers about their needs because they feel comfortable and safe doing so. A caregiver who fosters this type of honesty is someone who balances the support of a child's independence with the tenderness to comfort him or her. A caregiver's disregard for these needs may be a result of early childhood experiences, but this can be dealt with by acknowledging their own aversions and acting against them consciously.

What's it about?

Raising a Secure Child (2017) offers guidance for new parents or those expecting to have children who want to make sure they meet their child's many needs. Using Hoffman et al.'s strategies, caregivers can form strong bonds with their children without having to worry about perfection. In addition, the authors explain the ways in which parents can better recognize their own insecurities and safeguard their kids from inheriting them.
