Mar 15, 2019

"Let’s talk Collection Dance”

The Collection Dance can be found in these two books:

Hold onto Your Kids by Dr. Gordon Neufeld

Rest Play Grow by Dr. Deborah MacNamara



Remember it has 4 simple parts.

  • Move into their space
  • Make eye contact to solicit a smile
  • Get a nod
  • A ritual that shows warmth—physical touch, joke

2019 is the year of bantering with our kids.  Let’s embrace water cooler conversations that increase positive interactions and attachment.  Want to do it together? Consider joining my VIP Group.

~~Got a road trip or just everyday drives around town?  Use the time well by adding in play.
