The 4 S’s of Attachment-Based Parenting – Dan Siegel -276

By Jayson
February 25, 2020

One of my mentors, Dan Siegel, is back on the podcast for his 3rd interview. 

This time, we dive deep into attachment-based parenting. Dan’s work, which my wife and I study intently, is how I parent my own children. The cool thing about Dan is what a nerd he is around research-based approaches and information. 

We cover the 4 S’s from his “Power of Showing Up” book. It’s so good. 

Check it out and please apply this to your own parenting (if you are one). 

Here are a few of the highlights:


  • 3:25: Introduction Dan Siegel
  • 4:40: How kids’ behavior is different in this day and age.
  • 7:30: New parenting challenges
  • 14:15: About secure attachment
