Creating Loving Attachments: Parenting with PACE to Nurture Confidence and Security in the Troubled Child

Author(s): Kim S. Golding & Daniel A. Hughes

Behaviour Management

All children need love, but for troubled children, a loving home is not always enough. Playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy (PACE) are four valuable elements of parenting that, combined with love, can help children to feel confident and secure. This book shows why these elements are so important to a child's development.
