Good parenting is sensitive and responsive to children’s cues and signals. While tried-and-true parenting strategies work sometimes, at other times, children do best with parenting that is customized to their needs and personalities.
Agile parenting skills and awareness of the communication between children and parents is critically important for the health, adaptation and functioning of children, not only through their first 1,000 days, but through their entire lives.
Join researcher Sheri Madigan in this webinar as she provides insights into the importance of adaptive, alert and responsive parenting, and developing the knowledge and/or intuition to respond appropriately to cues and signals.
