Book News
Using the concept called Circle of Security, the authors (psychotherapists) teach parents a way of balancing childhood independence with comfort. The Circle of Security is the joining of these two things; the parent controls the child's access to all parts of the circle. The first half of the text introduces concepts and gives numerous parenting examples, both good and bad. The second half encourages the reader to strengthen her Security Circle, and gives advice on how to handle the inevitable maturing and growing up of children. Case studies and real life examples are numerous. Of special note is the overarching message that parents don't have to be perfect, just good enough.
