Understanding your baby’s emotional needs to create the best beginnings.
In Best Start, psychologist Lynn Jenkins looks at how a person’s emotional foundations are formed in babyhood and the power that these foundations have over the way in which the child develops.
She begins by examining how a baby’s brain is shaped to support developing self-concepts before moving on to outline what a baby needs in order to develop a positive idea of themselves. Most importantly, she explains to parents what they can do to meet those needs, ensuring that their child experiences the best start in life.
