I'm going on an AP course!

Postby AnnetteandBen » Thu Apr 08, 2010 8:35 pm

Just thought I would share, I'm really excited now, next Saturday I am off on an 8 hour course on Child Development course about emotional development in young children run by John and Richard Bowlby and they gave me a complimentary ticket rather than having to pay the £100 to attend.

The course says this;

The day will start with an overview of attachment theory from a personal perspective and then examine the significance of attachment to the "mother figure" as well as attachment to other figures in children's lives including care of babies and toddlers by non-parental figures.

And although I didn't fully AP, I did what felt right at the right time and generally get all the other minders telling me to put the children down instead of holding / cuddling them when they want. I think it will be really interesting :babyroll: :mrgreen:

I'll let you know how it goes!

I just don't understand how anyone can think it wrong to cuddle a baby when they want it. I used to go for coffee with some other mums who would leave their babies in the buggy the whole time we were in the coffee shop - sometimes over an hour.

I am lucky in that my childminder always seems to have a child in her arms - unfortunately there's only one of her so it can't always be Martha!
