Elevating Child Care (2014)

A Guide to Respectful Parenting

This is a quick and easy read with great principles to set a foundation for gentle parenting. Janet Lansbury does a wonderful job of making a complex topic extremely approachable. Her work stems from the groundbreaking of Magda Gerber nearly half a century ago. Magda was far ahead of her time, but thanks to scientific advances, it is now much easier to qualify her beliefs (which were at the time and still remain someone what unpopular – especially among baby-boomers).

The methodology Lansbury follows is simply known as RIE. The mission of RIE is “to improve the lives of infants and young children through respectful care” RIE asserts that babies are far more complex and susceptible to certain kinds of stimulation (particularly emotional) and that we, above all, consider and respect their experience. Babies are so often treated as objects or at least sub-human. RIE asserts that babies are whole and complex beings from birth and we should challenge beliefs or actions that are contrary to that.

“Easy to digest information with foundational principles for loving, respectful child care. Filled with practical tips to apply as soon as you bring your newborn home.”

Everything your child does is an opportunity to learn and communicate. It is important to clear the way for this, take them seriously, and not let your own experience get in the way. Much of RIE resonates with Attachment Parenting which is picking up in popularity.

All in all, Lansbury does an excellent job of laying out basics of strategy and encouragement than any parent or caretaker would greatly benefit from.
