A Note to Our Child's Caregivers — Tina Payne Bryson, PhD
Sometimes it can be hard to describe attachment parenting, or peaceful parenting, or conscious parenting, or whatever you call it when you put empathy first and consider the child a unique human being with a spirit and a voice. Without fearing how that will affect the power dynamic in the family.
It also may feel crucial to do this when leaving your young child with another caregiver. Dan Siegel and Tina Bryson have imagined this scenario, and offer a shortcut to describing this empathy-first approach, with a letter emphasizing you Connect Before you Correct. The letter is from No Drama Discipline, and you can read it here on Bryson's website.
