This is an in-depth study on how to create an emotional connection between you and your child. Zeynep Biringer (a parent as well as a researcher on emotional availability in parent and child relationships) shares information about clinical research on children interacting with a parent or another caregiver. Information from this study helps us to have a deeper understanding of, and connection with, ourselves as well as our children.

The author answers many questions that those who deal with children might have. They range from questions about discipline to issues the child faces while growing up. Examples are provided of real situations and problems. The suggested approaches are invaluable, allowing us to learn through other people's experiences to have a more harmonious ride. Interspersed throughout the book are tips that indicate positive steps that can be applied immediately. The importance of emotional connection with the child is emphasized for existing and new parents, for single parents, a divorced couple, or a situation merging two families together.

Any caregivers (including parents, educators, grandparents, etc.) who play an important role in shaping the lives of children, can benefit from this book. Read Raising A Secure Child to better understand child psychology, with the aim of creating better emotional connections with children, so that they may grow up to become healthy emotionally connected adults, interacting with the world around them in a positive and productive way.
