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.

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.

Communication is key to great parenting!
The following quote is from a father:
"Talk to your baby from the beginning and tell him all the little things you're doing. My son would calm noticeably when Cynthia spoke telling him what she was doing. He somehow knew his needs were going to be met and he could relax. Even more surprising and rewarding was discovering that if this communication is open between you and your baby from the start, he will begin to "talk" to you, too. Listening, understanding and communicating are key."
These words are exemplary. Communication is so important. Words are the way to connect with your infant in so many ways. They are also how to show your infant that have the utmost respect for her.
Remember your child has heard voices and sounds in utero and will now be able to talk with you in person. He understands you and will respond with verbal sounds called CRYING. Yes, crying is your infant's way of communicating. This is the way they tell you what they need.
Four basic cries:
Listening to your infant and learning the sounds for the above will make such a difference for you. Hearing crying can be very unsettling. Taking the time to listen will make you and your infant more relaxed and more connected.
