The quality of the relationship you have with your child plays a big role in her healthy development! Building a close, loving relationship is the most important thing you can do to help your little one develop resilience, the coping skills that will help her bounce back in the face of difficult circumstances.
Last week, we celebrated parents and the special bond they create with their young children. Research shows that the emotional bonds built early on between babies and their caregivers are essential: they are the first steps in promoting healthy development. Warm and secure relationships with caregivers support young children’s early development, their school readiness, and their ability to form positive relationships with others.
Good nutrition is key to healthy child development, especially during the first two years. Young brains need a variety of healthy nutrients to support their cognitive, physical and social-emotional development. Family meal times also offer great opportunities to bond and share conversations that promote children’s early language development.
Last week, we celebrated grandparents. They play a truly special role in the lives of their grandchildren and family members. By spending time and bonding with their grandchildren, grandparents can develop close relationships and connections.
