Introduction

As our children grow, so does their brain. Having a secure base or attachment with your child will help them begin to interpret the world that we live in. A secure attachment bond will ensure that your child will feel secure, understood and be calm enough to experience optimal development of his or her nervous system. This in turn will give children a feeling of safety that results in eagerness to learn, healthy self-awareness, trust, and empathy. In contrast, an insecure attachment bond fails to meet your child’s need for security, understanding, and calm, preventing the child’s developing brain from organising itself in the best ways. This can inhibit emotional, mental, and even physical development, leading to difficulties in learning and forming relationships in later life. How we respond to our babies and children will influence the way they view the world and everyone in it. This along with several other factors is strongly linked to ensuring our children become resilient individuals. In essence, this means that children have the ability to overcome or be able to bounce back from difficult situations.
