THE INSTITUTE OF CHILD PSYCHOLOGY
Who We are . . .
- Children are inherently good
- Secure attachments are the cornerstone of all healthy relationships: a connected child is a happy child
- Connection not separation is the key to affective discipline
- Play is a child’s language and should be an integral part of their life
- Simplifying your family’s life will strengthen your connection to one another
- Awareness of a parent’s own childhood wounds is a critical step to becoming a mindful parent
- Parents should matter more than peers
- Discipline should take into account the neurological development of the child
- There is a difference between what a child wants and what they need
- You cannot spoil a child with love
- Children need warmth, connection, consistency, and predictability
