At last! Newton’s Attachment Connection takes attachment and neuroscience into the mainstream of parenting and clinical practice, bringing clarity and insight to the often misunderstood world of family bonds. Using a sensitive combination of informative vignettes, lucid explanations, and developmental milestones, she deftly illuminates the nature of the bond that develops between parents and their babies and the profound influence which this bond will have on a baby’s ability to form secure attachments. As a therapist and academic, Newton’s comprehensive knowledge of the socio-emotional development of children shines through with intelligence, passion, humor, and sensitivity.
—Sir Richard Bowlby Bt., president of the Centre for Child Mental Health in London, UK
Drawing on the latest scientific research and her extensive clinical experience, Newton has written a practical guide for parents who seek to foster an attachment bond with their young children (infants through three years of age). Since a secure attachment forms the foundation for children’s later social and emotional development, this is must read book for parents.
—Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, professor of psychology at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ, and cofounder and director emeritus of the Association for Play Therapy
"[Ruth Newton] has written a valuable book..."
From the Publisher
Using the science that underlies more extreme approaches to "attachment parenting," The Attachment Connection helps parents sort out the facts from the fiction about parent-child attachment and shows how paying attention to the cognitive needs of a growing child can help him or her grow up healthy, secure, and confident.

Leo Tolstoy's book Anna Karenina begins with: - Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
I would say - even very happy family has something to be unhappy about in its own way. I don't believe in perfection and this book, not once made me feel that those ideals are not achieveble for my happy, but imperfect family.
