How to Be Your Baby’s First Teacher
Optimize Your Child’s Development for Parenting Success
When a new baby comes home, most new parents feel overwhelmed. They want to help their child grow, develop and thrive, but wonder how to achieve that. As they engage with their new baby and situations arise, new parents often ask themselves, “What did mom say to do if this occurred?
I know all too well those feelings and emotions. The incompetent, inadequate feelings that arise are really a springboard into becoming a capable parent who knows how to meet their baby’s needs. The more incompetent a parent feels, the more open their heart is to be mentored, if they are willing to listen and learn.
My years of experience in moving from incompetent to fully capable is filled with mentors along the way who acted as guides for my growth as a mother, teacher educator and early childhood expert. I have now become a mentor for parents. My passion is to help parents and caregivers understand child development and empower them to be their child’s first teacher.
I deliver motivating, engaging, uplifting presentations that are filled with calls to action that push parents to be the best that they can be for their children. I highlight what parents are doing well and then engage them in areas that need further improvement. This approach leaves participants feeling hopeful and positive about their parenting knowledge and experience. I also encourage parents to reflect on how much or how little they want to increase their effectiveness. My talks and presentations include humor and practical advice on how to handle more serious topics.
