This book continues the ideas set forth in It’s Attachment, A New Way of Understanding Yourself and Your Relationships published by Guernica Editions. The last chapter in the book focused on how one’s adult attachment influences his/her parenting of children. This book will expand on the topic, exploring the 4 categories of adult attachment and how each category influences one’s parenting. The book will help a parent determine his or her Adult Attachment, understand the challenges for parenting based on their particular attachment and then offer guidelines on how to change parenting patterns, again based on the category of attachment of the parent.
