1. Ryan North gives the academic definition of attachment and then offers a simpler definition for families. This clip is from the "Attachment: What is it and Why Does it Matter" section of the Family to Family workshop that was a part of the 2015 Tapestry Adoption and Foster Care Conference.

  2. We all need to be equipped with tools that we can go to when our kids are dysregulated or get stuck. We have a responsibility to help them. In this last session of the Family to Family workshop, you will learn a set of go-to tools that will help decrease the frequency, duration, and intensity of any negative behaviors.

  3. Children need a balance of both nurture and structure in order to learn, grow, and thrive. All too often, however, we as parents lose our balance and as a result our children’s needs can go unmet and the challenges persist. This session will look closely at why a balance of nurture and structure is vital for our children and, more importantly, how we as parents can provide it.

  4. Attachment significantly influences how we view ourselves and others, as well as influencing the value we assign to relationships. Attachment provides the foundation for emotional regulation, the ability to trust, and the formation of a healthy sense of self. It can even influence how we come to understand God and our relationship with Him. Understood in this way, it is clear that attachment is a really big deal for both you and your child. But what exactly is it? Attachment is simply about the quality of the relationship.

  5. Structure is the default position from which most of us parent, but we know that our kids need us to be balanced as parents. They need each of us to represent both nurture and structure. Join us as you learn how to balance your structure with nurture during this session and learn how to do a nurture group at home with your family.
