It's really important for parents to feel connected to other parents, in particular, and family and friends, as they embark upon the journey of parenting. We know from child development research, that secure attachment between parents and children, emerge out of what's called the secure basis experience for the parent. If the parent is feeling like their emotional needs are being met, that they have places that they can go to process experiences, -- especially their experiences as parents -- then they have more to give to their children, It's that sense of feeling nourished and filled up that allows a mother and father to give and give and give, in the ways that are required; especially when you are trying to raise young children.
ALL PARENTS, Parenting
