“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men” – Frederick Douglass
Have you ever felt that parenting is one of the most challenging tasks in life? Often parents do not understand why their children repeatedly behave in a manner that is unwanted despite being reprimanded for the behaviour continuously.
The Circle of Security Parenting® intervention was developed to help parents raise happier children who are more responsive to their parents. Karmen is a certified and registered Circle of Security Parenting® Facilitator. Karmen offers the Circle of Security Parenting® intervention training to individuals, couples and groups.

Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children exhibit increased empathy have greater self-esteem form better relationships with parents and peers, enhanced school readiness and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure.”
