“Parenting is a dance and parents can help set the steps – the rhythm- the tune- the song…”
Ken Tellerman M.D.
These materials have been developed by the Maryland Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics. They are designed to help pediatric clinicians promote positive loving connections between parents and their babies.
INTRODUCTION: WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Adverse childhood experiences can lead to developmental delay, long term health problems, poor school performance and significant behavioral and emotional problems. The “buffering” effect of a positive stable caretaker relationship can help to create resilience and offset the effects of toxic stress particularly in young children ages 0-3 years.
Pediatric practitioners are often the first professionals who interface with parents and infants and are therefore key experts in helping to both promote healthy parent infant attachment and communication and in identifying dysfunctional parent infant dyads before problems escalate.
Yours may be the only professional voice that parents of infants and young children hear!
