One of my friends sent me some information tonight about a book called "The Connected Child" and some videos done by the author of the book.

Most books about attachment challenges deal with the why, but not the what you should do for healing and everyday life.  This book deals with what you should and shouldn't do NOW.  How you should and shouldn't respond.  Not why you get the behaviors you do, but rather how to deal with the behaviors you are getting and how to help mitigate them.

It also talks a lot about how it is HARD...really HARD.

This woman gets it.

The book isn't a quick or easy read.  It is 350 pages long.  I am 75 pages in and I find myself highlighting nearly everything.

It is going to take work.  It is going to take practice.  Nothing is intuitive.  In fact it goes against nearly everything conventional about parenting.

I'm going to do it.  I am going to put in the work.

These boys can heal and I can be a part of it...God put me in their lives for it.  I have to do my part.

Praises for this book and the friend who sent the information to me.  Again...God knew what I needed and when I needed it.
