Respect for Children

I would like to share with you an amazing book written by my mentor and friend, Ruth Anne Hammond, “Respecting Babies: A New Look at Magda Gerber’s RIE Approach.”

Ruth Anne Hammond was once a student of Magda Gerber, the founder of the RIE approach.

Ruth Anne talks about respect for babies. Why is it so important to speak to our children about what is happening and wait for a response?

Ruth Anne wrote, “When an adult speaks quietly about what is happening and waits for response, the child does not need to be on alert that change could be coming at any moment unannounced. It is enough for a baby to have to regulate her emotions when unavoidable surprises happen, such as when someone accidentally drops something, making a loud noise.”

Wishing you all the best in the difficult yet exciting journey of parenting!

Cheers,

Teacher Kira
