> “Connection parenting is parenting through connection instead of  
> coercion, through love instead of fear” Pam Leo.   Connection  
> Parenting recognizes that securing and maintaining a healthy parent- 
> child bond is our primary work as parents and the key to our  
> children’s optimal human development.  Our effectiveness as parents  
> is in direct proportion to the strength of the bond we have with our  
> child.  Connection Parenting promotes parenting practices that  
> support a strong, healthy parent-child bond.
> Connection parenting is proactive and focuses on ways to maintain  
> and increase the parent-child bond/connection.  Connection parenting  
> is an ideal, a navigation star we can look to for guidance.  Even if  
> we can’t parent in the most nurturing ways all the time, the more  
> often that we can, the more our children will get what they need,  
> and the better they will be able to weather the times when we parent  
> in less nurturing ways.
> Downeast Health Services Inc provides for the health, safety, and  
> well-being of children and their families in Downeast Maine.   
> Parents Are Teachers Too provides universal home visits to families  
> with their first baby.  Please contact the Hancock County Children’s  
> Council to learn about other parenting classes and workshops
