Attachment Parenting is Key to More Secure Children

Decades of research have shown that positive interactions between parents and children have a major impact on the development of children’s brains.  When babies are first born, they look for the warmth of their mothers to help them feel safe and secure. As children develop, how their parents respond to their needs shapes their emotional, mental and social well-being.

Without nurturing from parents and caregivers, very young children have difficulty developing the emotional and cognitive skills they need to process the world around them. In short, they have greater difficulty learning.

A parent’s response to cries from her baby – or to her cooing – helps the baby learn the fundamental mechanics of human communication. In fact, babies whose cries are ignored often are challenged in vocabulary development later on. This is because a baby’s efforts at communication need to be met with a back-and-forth from the people closest to her in order to encourage her to continue to communicate, and eventually learn to use her words.

There are many ways that parents and caregivers can be responsive to their babies’ needs, and help them develop emotional and mental security. When a baby cries, parents can pick their babies up and cuddle, rock or sing to them. Other non-verbal actions like gazing into a baby’s eyes, stroking their heads and backs, and breastfeeding or holding them close while bottle-feeding help them relax and feel safe.

For parents and caregivers who feel challenged by their infant care-taking responsibilities, programs across the country like the Early Head Start program have been designed to support children and their families, and help promote safe and secure relationships for better children’s development.

Happy Birthday, Mme. Secretary!

Our best wishes for a Happy Birthday, and a happy and healthy year ahead!   Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.


I am always thankful to Hillary’s mom and dad for giving her to us, and to all of her family for sharing her with us when, so often, they must have wished she were with them.

If you are in the NYC metropolitan area, you can join Chelsea’s Day of Action tomorrow, for Hillary’s birthday.  Or you can make a contribution to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation in her honor.

This is sweet.

Happy birthday to my brilliant & extraordinary wife . I know you hate surprises so I’ll tell you now, I didn’t plan a party.

Once again eschewing the available podium and teleprompter and using no notes, Hillary Clinton held forth for just under 30 minutes on the place of the US in global leadership. Lecturing in her casual, conversational style, Hillary was guest speaker in Colgate‘s Kerschner Family Series Global Leaders this evening.

Colgate President Jeffrey Herbst, a foreign policy scholar in his own right, conducted the Q & A which proved to be a refreshing divergence from recent events with predictable and mundane questions from the audience. Interaction and listener participation are fine, but this was a rare treat affording the opportunity to attend what amounted to a master class team taught by two of the best possible professors of the subject.
