Comfort, Play & Teach
To help parents and caregivers encourage a 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 caregiver's daily routine.
What may seem like the simplest and most automatic activities that you do with a child every day - like putting a bandage on a "boo boo", playing hide and go seek, or cuddling with a baby – are in fact among the most important ways parents and caregivers can help children reach their full potential.
When you comfort, play with and teach a child, you open up a world of possibilities for her. Through simple activities that are easy and natural to do, you encourage a child's ability to learn and to create, to communicate to love and to trust and to approach life with confidence and enthusiasm.
- When you comfort a child, she learns to feel secure, loved and valued.
- When you play with a child, he learns to explore and discover the world and his role in it.
- When you teach a child, she learns how to relate to others, solve problems and communicate.
