Extension district offers workshop on making secure childhood attachments

If you make a list of qualities of successful adults it will likely include confidence, strong social skills, cooperation and independence. The foundation for these traits is built on relationships that infants and toddlers form with the adults in their world.

The Frontier Extension District will be offering a workshop next week to help participants understand the impact of such relationships throughout life, learn ways to build secure attachments, and analyze their own ideas and caregiving practices to create ideas for building secure attachments with children.  

The workshop, “Giving your best: Making secure attachments”, will be 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4, at the Lyndon Frontier Extension District office, 128 W. 15th St. The workshop is approved for two in-service clock hours by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Registration fee is $5 and can be paid at the workshop. Participants are asked to register in advance by calling any of the Frontier Extension District offices: Garnett, 785-448-6826; Lyndon, 785-828-4428; or Ottawa, 785-229-3520. For more information, contact Rebecca McFarland, family and child development Extension agent, at 785-229-3520.
