About the Author
ELI HARWOOD is a licensed therapist who lives in Colorado with her husband, Trevor, and their three children. Eli has been nerding out on attachment research for the past two decades and is on a mission to help make the world a better place, one relationship at a time. She continues this mission in her clinical work, her writing, and running her mouth about attachment on social media. When she isn't working to make the world a more secure place, she is playing dress-up with her kids, obsessing about her sourdough starter, and reminiscing about that one time she won a set of globes as a Price is Right contestant. Visit her at AttachmentNerd.com.
"Eli Harwood brings infectious-fun energy, vulnerability, and fresh perspectives without shaming or blaming. Not only is Raising Securely Attached Kids a practical and actionable guide, it's grounded in science and entertaining to read. There is truly nothing that matters more to me in my life than building secure relationships with my children and loved ones."
--Hilary Swank, actress, storyteller, mom of twins

"Raising Securely Attached Kids is a comprehensive roadmap for parents who want to raise securely attached, emotionally healthy children. Eli Harwood breaks down the science of attachment to offer practical insights for cultivating parent-child relationships based on safety, connection, and collaboration. A parenting must-read."
--Alyssa Blask Campbell, M.Ed., author of Tiny Humans, Big Emotions

"Eli uses her charm, humor, and compelling storytelling ability to weave together a narrative that will guide parents toward a deep and transformative relationship with their children. Eli has a special gift to take complex research and psychological concepts and make them accessible to her audience, and that is woven through each page of this book. This is a must-read for any parent looking to cultivate a secure attachment with a child at any age."
--Tammy Schamuhn, author of The Parenting Handbook and cofounder of the Institute of Child Psychology

"Insightful, profound, poignant. Raising Securely Attached Kids is a must-read for parents committed to building a secure foundation that lasts a lifetime. This book seamlessly translates cutting-edge research into practical wisdom, providing the guide every parent needs. Eli Harwood brings an outstanding fusion of knowledge and heart to the world of parenting."
--Dr. Galit Atlas, author of Emotional Inheritance and faculty member at NYU Postdoctoral Program for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

"If there's one thing a divorcing parent wishes for as their marital status changes, it's a continued healthy attachment with their children. As a certified divorce and coparenting specialist, I have long since turned to Harwood's work for inspiration, motivation, and the best tips for fostering a healthy, secure attachment with our children. This book is the delicious icing on the cake for all she's put into the world so far, and a gift to those of us working hard to give our children a childhood they can be proud of one day."
--Michelle Dempsey-Multack, founder of Moms Moving On

"You can't put a roof on a house without first laying a sturdy foundation and building a frame. There are many parenting advisors offering quick tips on shaping your child's behavior, but much of this advice falls short and leads to parenting feeling like a game of whack-a-mole, with one challenge replacing another. Raising Securely Attached Kids will guide you in creating the secure attachment relationship with your child that will become the foundation upon which healthy families can be built. This book is the parenting guide we all need."
--Rachel Samson, clinical psychologist and @AustralianPsychologist
