Our society is characterised by speed and demands that leave us with little time to enjoy being with our children. We spend less time with them than we would like. The world we live in is increasingly more connected technologically speaking, but there are fewer emotional and social connections.

Scientific studies have shown the need to have quality time in order to develop bonds of security in our children and encourage their autonomy, empathy and self-esteem. Humans overcome the dependence of the early years of life when they are treated well by their attachment figures during childhood and adolescence.

In this book you will find clear and practical explanations of the importance of bonding and connecting with our children, and also about the deep development of the various attachment styles, how to differentiate between a need and a desire, and the characteristics that parents should have in order to act as secure attachment figures. Here we learn how the bonds that we establish with our children are all influenced by sleep, food and nutrition, playing and an abuse of electronic devices.

Rafa Guerrero, a psychologist with a doctorate in Education, offers a simple and practical explanation of the keys for promoting secure relationships with our children in order to help them achieve a high level of self-esteem, develop a capacity to resolve conflicts and learn how to be empathic and resilient.
