This book is a guide for home visitors to use in teaching parents and other caregivers to value and support a child's development. When the parent-child relationship is positive, infants and toddlers develop a sense of security, explore with confidence, and learn to communicate their needs. These three outcomes are the foundations of social-emotional, cognitive, and language development, which are, in turn, the foundations of the outcomes parents dream of for their children, because all three...support school readiness, academic success, social competence, and mental health. The book's approach supports a parenting focused model for home visiting, which sends an implicit message of respect for the role of the parent as someone who can provide good developmental experiences for the child, even in difficult times.
