Every parent we have ever met wants to have a smart child and be a smart parent. Raising a child is the most important responsibility anyone will ever have and can provide the most pleasure and reward.

SMART PARENT/SMART CHILD is the revolutionary philosophy that all children are incredibly intelligent from the moment they are born. When parents have learned understanding, respect, highly developed communication and relationship skills and development related expertise, it is amazing what a child can accomplish and, in fact, each child will achieve his maximum potential.

Our mission is to help you achieve that goal. The key to a child's education and success is a skilled, knowledgeable, informed and educated parent.

A Mom Says Thank You

A Cynthia Anka Post

"Cynthia helped us as an infant caregiver and consultant for just a week. She did more than typical night nursing-she helped us as new parents understand our 8 week old baby in a new way. She analyzed (with lots of two-way conversation) the problems we were having with our daughter's frequent feedings, stomach discomfort and non-restorative sleep and made excellent suggestions to alter our patterns.

Some of the amazing changes made:

- Increase the nipple flow on the bottles which allowed us to increase the amounts of milk she would consume for her age and need.

- Increase diaper size to allow her more room to expand with increase in milk feedings and growth.

- Implemented a sleep routine where we would no longer wake her for nighttime feedings but rather allow her to wake herself when hungry.

- Showed us effective ways to calm our daughter to fall asleep without us having to hold her to help her fall asleep.

Some of these sound so simple and they really had a significant impact on our daughter's eating and sleeping. On the first night, she slept longer than she ever had and ate more as well. It was a dramatic difference.

Cynthia was so successful in helping us understand and manage our daughter's eating/sleeping regime that we only needed one week's help since our daughter responded so well."

Even though it may seem that you are in a "dark" place with no way out, do not despair. Seeking the right advice sooner than later will get you to a better place and the reward is enjoying each day with your infant more and more.
