Parenting Right From the Start (Baby & Toddler Years)
Laying a Healthy Foundation in the Baby and Toddler Years Scientific research indicates that a strong and stable sense of connection to their parents teaches children how to regulate their emotions, master social skills, and develop a sense of identity. Unfortunately, many parenting practices and attitudes disrupt healthy connection rather than foster it, leading to behavioral issues and emotional problems that can last into adulthood. This book helps parents understand how mindful and conscious parenting can help them avoid passing unhealthy patterns down from one generation to the next. Parents can learn how to build a firm, caring presence in the early years that a child can lean into for a lifetime.
