Rest, Play, Grow: Interview with Dr. Deborah MacNamara
Apr 26, 2021 Season 2 Episode 16
Bonnie Landry

Christina Jaloway joins me co-hosting this episode where we interview Dr. Deborah MacNamara.  A wealth of knowledge and passion, Deborah MacNamara has beautiful and sensitive insights into the hearts of our children.    We discuss her work and her book,
Rest, Play, Grow: making sense of preschoolers (or anyone who acts like one)


Deborah walks us gently, graciously through the layers and depths of building connection with our children, and helps us to understand the instincts and gifts we innately carry to give the safe environment that they crave. 

Deborah's insights and gift to us can be summarized in the following quote ~

"The secret to [developing relationships] is  helping a child see that it’s not their job to strive to hold on to us but to take for granted that we won’t let go of them."
