    Found myself much more interested in the fathers behavior than the little boy. I thought it was the fathers behavior – calm and steady – that allowed the little boy to feel safe. Made me realize how little I had that growing up.

      I agree – the father’s behavior, the look in his eyes is incredibly important and powerful. That’s part of how we remap attachment status. Drink it in! Deirdre
