What is Circle of Security© Parenting™?

Circle of Security© Parenting™ focuses on developing secure attachment between the caregiver and their child. It helps caregivers give children a sense of security and confidence so they can explore, learn, grow, and build positive relationships – essential skills for lifelong success.

Why Circle of Security© Parenting™?

Decades of research have shown that children with secure attachment have higher self-esteem, are better able to regulate their emotions and behaviors, make positive long-term friendships, are more successful at school and in the workplace, and more.
