We've created a 8.5x14 4-fold brochure with examples, suggestions, and encouragement for parents learning why it's important to interact with babies during the first years of life. We hope that this will help you explain this to others. Please feel free to download and reproduce this to help spread the word. Please do not alter these documents in any way.
We are often asked “OK, I get it. What do you want me to do?” That’s a very difficult question to answer but let me take a stab at it. We want you to lead.
