Our first review!
"I'd love this series to be required viewing for all infant and toddler caregivers. Beverly Kovach's words of wisdom on what is truly important for the youngest children (primary caregiving, unhurried, respectful, relationship-building caregiving routines as the curriculum) will go far in improving the quality of care provided for little ones. I highly recommend these videos!"
Thank you, Sue.

Children will tell us if they don't FEEL safe, loved and cared for, they tell us with their body language, by the way they behave. Can we hear what they are saying, or will we say the child is "naughty", "trouble", "terribly two"? Or from the hands-off parents, will we excuse their behaviour as "spirited" and "strong willed" when the child is crying out for the love and loving guidance that spells safety?
