Main Contributor to Disorganized Attachment

The Most significant contributor to disorganized attachment is being frightening as a parent to your child!

Parents need to increase their empathy for their child/ren’s needs; being to be:

  • Welcomed when he/she comes to you
  • Protected
  • Comforted
  • Delighted in
  • Having his/her feelings organized

Increased empathy plays a vital role in developing secure attachment because it leads to more awareness, responsiveness, and “no nonsense tenderness.”

About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.
