To help you encourage your child's social, emotional and intellectual development, we have created Comfort, Play & Teach: A Positive Approach to Parenting™. This simple approach is built on every day activities that are part of a parent's daily routine.

When you play with your child, he learns to explore and discover the world and his role in it.
