PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity & Empathy) attachment parenting is a style of parenting that fosters healthy attachment within children and young people. The basic idea behind attachment parenting is that the parent-child, or in our case the staff-child, relationship should feel inherently safe to the child… physically, emotionally, and psychologically. The parent-child relationship provides a “safe haven” from distress of all kinds. The relationship also serves as a “secure base” from which the young person will feel free to explore the world.
