Early Nurturing Lifelong Benefits

For nine months your focus has been on pregnancy and birth.  All of a sudden Baby arrives, and you are PARENTS with the full responsibility of caring for a new life. What to do?  After all, babies don't come with a manual. You want to do the "right thing", but may not know what that is. Quite naturally, most new parents focus on the practical aspects of caring for their new baby. Many trustworthy resources offer this information.

At KIDCARECANADA our focus is social and emotional health, now considered the best foundation for mental, emotional and physical wellness, and happiness and success throughout life. Our resources guide you so that you can be a more confident and relaxed parent. You will see how your everyday nurturing actions put your infant or toddler on the path for social and emotional health, and that the benefits last a lifetime!

It takes time, patience and help from others to become a confident parent.  Our resources are practical and based on the most reliable evidence. They support you on your journey. Enjoy!

Nurturing is needed at every stage of life and you can apply the concepts in our resources to children and adults of any age. After all, our need to feel happy and safe in relationships is life-long.
