Season 3 – Episode 6
|BIG IDEA||This season you’ve heard several stories from across the globe illustrating the benefits of family-based vs. institutionalized care for vulnerable children. In this episode, you’ll learn about the psychology behind this…the importance of a secure attachment with parents or caregivers, and the reasons a child needs to feel safe and loved before they can successfully learn and reach their full potential. Fascinating information about a child’s development!|
