Reinforce early childhood nurturing skills for parents and caregivers.
Research continues to demonstrate that the care and guidance provided for children during the first years of their lives plays a critical role. Crucial brain development takes place in children from birth to age three, and how parents and caregivers nurture this development can greatly affects not only the child’s fundamental emotional well-being, but also cultivate personal, academic, and social skills required to learn well in school, cope with everyday problems, and succeed later in life. Creating Caring Children: The First Three Years was created to identify, address and meet children’s developmental needs in a conscious, caring way. Written by experts in early childhood education, this book provides parents, professional caregivers, and day-care administrators with appropriate, nurturing responses to a wide variety of behavioral issues typical during these early years.
