They feel safe in being able to interact with others and explore their environment with their caregiver acting as a secure base. Children with a secure relational style may show distress at being left by their caregiver but on their caregivers return, are easily comforted and return quickly back to play and exploration. Secure children feel comfortable expressing their emotions and seek and accept comfort from their caregivers when feeling distressed. These children have a positive view of themselves and others.

    • Hi there

      Thank you for your kind words. I’m so pleased you enjoy my writing.

      Yes, I would suggest you start with a free option like BlogSpot or like I’ve done here with Write a few posts and see how it goes before you invest money in a paid site.

      Start small and work your way up from there.

      Kind regards


  13. I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but great topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
    Thanks for excellent information I was looking for this information for my mission.


  14. Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.


  15. Can I simply say what a relief to discover somebody who actually understands what they are discussing on the net.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. More people should check this out and understand
    this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.


  16. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your
    post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
    can you offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs?
    I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome blog!


  17. Admiring the time and energy you put into your website and in depth information you offer.
    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material.
    Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.


  18. Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written much
    better! Looking through this post reminds me of
    my previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this.

    I will send this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a very good
    read. Thanks for sharing!


  19. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and
    was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.


    • HI there

      Thank you for your question.

      Blogging does not need to cost you money. There are many free platforms out there you could use. Just do a Google search to see which free platform is going to suit you.

      I use Word Press because it is the easiest to use and because they have so many templates to choose from and their templates are very easy to use. Many people use so you just have to check them all out and see which one suits you best.

      Kind regards


  20. Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Kudos!


  21. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any points for first-time blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.


  22. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult
    to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and
    appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job
    with this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Outstanding Blog!
