    Thanks and I'm glad you're speaking to parents in this. As a mom of five and trauma survivor I definitely relate to the importance of what you're sharing.

    What about a baby being taken to childcare providers at a very early age? This is also a problem right? In our society we dont think of it since moms are working, but this is setting a child up for nervous system trauma. I was taken to childcare at one month old because my mom had to work. And unfortunately I didnt know any better at the time and took my son to childcare at about 5 mths of age.

    I'm so excited to see that you recommend The Continuum Concept!!! That book was my parenting bible and I credit its author for the incredible ease and harmony I experienced in my family, and the wonderful sense of self my 3 adult daughters have as a result of the way they've been parented.

    As a parenting coach now, it's the basis of most of my work and I continue to be in awe of the changes that happen in the families who work with me, as they integrate principles like seeing children as innately good, being on the same team, being a clear and benevolent leader, providing lots of empathy and making sure their needs for connection, safety and mattering are fully met.

    Here's an article I wrote on Applying The Continuum Concept to Modern Day Parenting:

    Thank you so much for all the work you do, Irene!
