What’s MY Attachment Got To Do With It?

February 23, 2017

Attachment.  If I opened up every book I own about attachment and searched for a definition, I’d come up with at least 100. (Um, gulp, I really do own that many books about attachment!  Is that a problem?! Nah, I don’t think so…it’s fine…).  One time, I actually started to do this…but I quickly realized that there are as many definitions as there are books, and in some circumstance I actually found multiple definitions in one book!!

UPDATE!!!!  This recorded webinar is now available for purchase on my website!!!

Webinar on Parent Attachment!!!

Want to cut to the chase?  I have a new webinar all about adult attachment.  It will air next Wednesday but EVERYONE will get a recording so you definitely do NOT need to attend live.  This sneak peak into how our own attachment experiences impacts our parenting journey is a must have for all parents, but this webinar will be especially for parents of children who have been impacted by a trauma, loss, or attachment disruption.  You can click here to jump to the registration page.

Attachment is hard to define because it’s an embodied experience- like love.  Can we capture love with words in a book?  Can we capture attachment with words in book?

Attachment happens in the ‘in between’ space.  The space between you and me that is created ONLY by you and me together.  The we.

Attachment needs two.

Since it needs two, we really can’t talk about our kid’s attachment without getting curious about ours.

We know that 80% of the time, a child’s attachment patterns mirror their parent’s attachment patterns.  And somehow super smart researchers are able to determine that this is not genetic.  Who knows how they know this, but I trust them.

So we must open up the attachment conversation and look at ourselves.  Us. Parents.

This brings me to my next webinar!!!!

This is a HUGE topic!  We could talk for days about how our attachment experiences impact our parenting and we would STILL just be scratching the surface.  So how about we start with just one hour??

Next Wednesday the 1st, I’ll be hosting another webinar, this time all about OUR attachment.  Us as parents.

Luckily- attachment patterns are always changing.  With mindful intention, we can shift our own attachment patterns toward more security, allowing our children to also shift toward more security.
