Hold onto Your Kids
This DVD explores the importance of attachment in the development of children. In some cases, these relationships do not last for the length of time that children are still maturing. Often times, children turn their attachment relationship from caregivers to peers. However, peer relationships do not have the same benefits for the child as those with caregivers.SKU: 8-V-804
Making Sense of Play
In this two-hour seminar, Dr. Gordon Neufeld explores what play is, the benefits of play, and what is needed for children to play. Dr. Neufeld explains that play is not an option; it is a developmental requirement. Through various examples, he explores the three basic tenants of play: 1) Play is not work, 2) Play is expressive and exploratory, and 3) Play is “not for real”.SKU: 8-V-803
The Heart of Learning
Much of the way children think and feel about themselves and their world is determined in the first three years of their lives. In this formative time, the brain is developing a complex “wiring” system, making connections that will strongly influence children’s patterns of emotional, social, and psychological behaviour – and how well they can learn, handle stress, thrive, and function in the world. The video kindles deep, natural parenting instincts, while providing clear and accessible strategies for loving and nurturing interaction with children.SKU: 5-V-508
