We invite all adults caring for children (infants to teenagers) to join a Circle of Security Parenting group! This includes single/married parents, grandparents, foster-parents, adoptive parents, and other guardians. The Circle of Security is a straight-forward program that helps parents strengthen their relationship with their children and runs on three basic assumptions:
- You are the most important person in your child’s life.
- Children are sometimes hard to understand, and that’s OK. It’s also OK to ask for help to understand your child.
- Best of all, you don’t have to be the perfect parent….just a good enough one!
**Look here for the great things parents and professionals have to say about the Circle of Security!
If you are interested in learning more or joining a Circle of Security Parenting group, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us (315-343-0257) and we will direct you to the appropriate agency.
