Caring for Infants with Respect

EPUB EBook by Magda Gerber

EBook Description

Now that I have read several parenting books, I have come to one huge realization: No book should be taken in total. Caring for Infants with Respect EPUB EBookNone of these authors know my little boy, my wife, or me.While they may give us a lot to consider, they cannot understand our individual temperments and our personal and family values.As a result, read away, but tread lightly.Act as gleaner.And trust your own gut and know this: You are the expert at parenting your own child.

That said, Magda Gerber has a warm tone which feels like a nice blend of attachment parenting and a lot of common sense.And her overall claim is one worth considering.Her proposal is simply that we treat even infants with respect.She endorses that we communicate with our infant children often, even though they may not understand our words.We should say, "I'm going to pick you up now!" instead of just swooping and scooping.When changing their diaper, we should talk through each step in the process—not solely to encourage language acquisition but out of respect for them as developing individuals.

There is a lot more to consider here, but again beware of taking everything as gospel.At times the book felt like an advertisement for her REI classes (which I'm not sure where they are offered, but I would consider attending to see what other wisdom she has in store).But again, as a new parent, while I'm grateful for the advice and insight, I must also trust my own intuition, observations and insights.
