Connection vs. Perfection

It only takes 30% of attunement with an infant or toddler to form a secure attachment. The other 70% is where mistakes or challenges within a relationship may occur. Infants and toddlers crave authenticity within their relationships just like we do, and with authenticity comes “oops”. In this training participants, will explore how our “oops” can breed a more connected relationship specifically with infants and toddlers with special needs and those whose culture is different from our own. This session will focus on examining how choosing connection over perfection can be the answer to supporting strong relationships with ALL of our youngest learners.
