PLACE Parenting

I’m a regular reader of Help 4 Your Family, a blog written by therapist Kate Oliver. She recently posted about “PLACE parenting,” which was so helpful, that it will soon find a place on my fridge. Here’s a summary:

“Daniel Hughes and Art Becker-Weidman are working to popularize a parenting attitude that really can work wonders if parents are able to maintain it when they have an attachment disordered child (or any child for that matter). It is called the PLACE mentality, it stands for: Playful, Loving, Accepting, Curious, Empathic.”
