Parenting a child, whether 2 months old or 20 years old, is one of the hardest things to do. Most of us parent our child the way we were parented. We often say something like “well it worked for me.” However, in the last ten years or so, there has been an explosion of new information on neurobiology and how is connects to child development and parenting. No longer does effective parenting have to be such a mystery. Learn about the three critical parts of every parent’s neurobiology and why it is so important to address and understand each part as a parent. We also will learn how our neurobiology is the underpinning to a healthy relationship (aka attachment).
