She demonstrated how we should 'Seeing Infants with New Eyes', emphasising respect, trust and acceptance in interacting with infants. The basis of Magda's Gerber's Educaring® is respect for, and trust in the baby to be an initiator, an explorer, and a self learner.
Parents often raise aspirations, dreams and expectations for the future of their children. Are our hopes, dreams and expectations for our children what they really need? I believe many of us experienced the same with our parents when we were young. Remember how we felt and how our personality affected by those expectations?
Let's refresh ourselves, see our children with new eyes, respect them as a unique human being, prepare a suitable environment for them to explore and grow in their own way!
