ANNOUNCING!!!! Together in Nature: Pathways to a Stronger, Closer Family.
C&NN is delighted to announce the release of this new tool kit, free and downloadable from the C&NN web site. Research over the last forty years has shown that a secure parent-child attachment is an important foundation for a child’s later competence and well-being. C&NN adds the perspective of nature-based experiences as an especially rich opportunity for the kinds of parent-child interactions that promote and sustain good attachment at any age.
This tool kit begins with a clear and helpful overview of attachment research, and then offers a host of family-friendly, age-appropriate suggestions for things to do outdoors in nature to nurture parent-child relationships and support healthy child development. C&NN Chair and co-Founder, Dr. Martha Farrell Erickson is a developmental psychologist and says, “By following a prescription for more nature experience together, families will discover a win/win situation in which both children and adults benefit as individuals, even as they are strengthening those important family bonds that all children (and adults) need.”
