THE FIRST YEAR: A Gentle Beginning

During the first year of life, when the child begins to build his or her experience of the world, we can help build feelings of security and trust by handling the infant in the most gentle way, speaking softly, and providing support for visual and eventually physical exploration of the child's room, home, and world.
