Resilience and Outcomes

Decades of research tells us that children who are securely attached to a caregiver enjoy greater resilience in the face of stress and better outcomes in virtually every area of life. The folks at Circle of Security International have summarized this nicely for us.

The Difference that Makes a Difference

After 50 years of research we know that the more secure children are, the more they are able to:

Enjoy more happiness with their parents Feel less anger at their parents Turn to their parents for help when in trouble Solve problems on their own Get along better with friends Have lasting friendships Solve problems with friends Have better relationships with brothers and sisters Have higher self-esteem Know that most problems will have an answer Trust that good things will come their way Trust the people they love Know how to be kind to those around them
