Dr. Beatrice Beebe and her team of researchers from Columbia University have written an amazing book that looks at the powerful and life changing impacts of mother-infant interactions in the first weeks and first months of life.

Her book uses dozens of drawings done from video recordings of mother-child interactions taken at roughly 100 days old for each child, and shows how those mother-child interactions can predict — with an extremely high level of accuracy — the emotional status and the infant attachment patterns and levels that will exist at one year of life for each of the infants they studied.

George Halvorson's most recent The Huffington Post piece was written to get important information out to the people who think about public policy issues for education, child development, and health status for children in our country, and to make it available to families who can use that information to change the future life trajectories for their children.

Please share this information directly the families of children being born today in America.

If you are about to give birth or if you know someone who is about to give birth—please share this information about the importance of those first weeks and first months with them. Too many parents are not given good information about what to do in those first weeks and months—and both mothers and fathers tend to be very happy to learn that simply holding their child and talking to their child in a nurturing way create great benefits for both the children’s capabilities and sense of security and belonging.

Together, we can make a huge difference in the lives of children from every group if we do things to help every child in the first weeks, months, and years of life for each child.

Please check out our new website which was created to help new mothers and new fathers have important tools and information they need to personally help with the very best support for both brain development and emotional development for their children.
