According to Randi Jacoby, a speech and language specialist in New York (1), ├ éČ┼"children require time and one-on-one feedback as they struggle"to build their language and cognitive skills.├ éČ Ł They also require the full presence of their caretaker├ éČ"whether that's mother, father, grandparent, or nanny├ éČ"to reassure as well as stimulate them and prepare them for the challenges that life will present to them.

Using our words and our full-hearted presence to help children be calm and heal not only gives them much-needed relief in the moment. It gives them the verbal and emotional tools they need to keep themselves healthy for a lifetime.
