How often have you noticed that a baby can be happy with a friend or relative while mum is absent for a short time, but as soon as she returns the baby will become tearful and reach out for mum to pick them back up!
It can seem strange to us, but it’s actually all to do with attachment – the emotional bond between a parent and a child. The first two years of a child’s life is when the brain is developing at it’s fastest, and this time is key for developing attachment.
Because we take attachment seriously, we have developed TotSlot.
Totslot is a series of ten minute talks looking at the key principles of bonding and attachment, helping parents explore how to develop a close bond with their children. The A3 presentation folder contains cards with one side to face the parents with the key message displayed, and the reverse facing towards the presenter displaying the information needed to present the session. TotSlot is ideal for running in a local setting such as a baby or toddler group.
