Happy Monday! Start off this week listening to Chaya Kulkarni, Director of Infant Mental Health Promotion at the Hospital for Sick Children, speak about how to nurture your baby’s development in those early years (ages 0-3). A few things she mentions in this short video clip are listed below. Enjoy!
- Build a secure attachment with your child.
- Your responsiveness can impact the attachment with your child.
- Toxic stress in infants/toddlers raise cortisol levels. Constant high levels of cortisol will actually kill brain cells.
- Be aware of the developmental milestones and needs.
